    So living in a high traffic area it is inevitable that accidents happen. Wife wrecked the truck I bought her. So I decided to rebuild after insurance said it was a total lose. I can change brakes and shocks and parts but never took on a project like this. So I started. Here's a thread of the progress. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions and such

    As you can see not real bad but I did have to replace the front frame section and apron. No real motor damage other than the powersteering pump pulley and cooling fan blade. Both airbags and clocksprings, as well as the module have already been done.

    No tree, but it was a yogi in a santafe...they like trees>

    I installed my driver airbag so I am bout to be legal in the cab...EXCEPT for the stupid seat belt module to make the seatbelt retract again....grrrr. Had no idea that it was even there...Any help on this one is appreciated.image (4).jpg

    Anyways I busted out a bumper support and cut and preped the other side. Had to eat ham so no more weding tonight, maybe.

    image (2).jpg

    I have a very limited work area so I wok in random spots and friends garages. This is on the side of my townhouse and I had to get creative with a fab bench to cut and weld on...

    Going to basically build the parts for the bumper but not finish it up until the frame is all good next saturday. Got a couple of 1/4" aluminum plate street signs that I am going to be bending and fitting for some skiddys.
    Not much more to do to be back to where I started before the accident

    -Fan clutch
    -Seatbelt
    -bumper
    -paint and frame (done next week by my buddy)
    -Fan shroud(If anyone has one to sell PM me PLEASE!!!!)


    Soon after this project I am gonna buy a OME suspension setup to put on but one step at a time.

    [So It made its maiden voyage home last night. Ran great. Everything seems pretty good. Just waiting on the call that the frame machine is open and I am headed to do the final big piece of my puzzle. Just a few pics of the ride finally at home101_1733.jpg

    So I need an antenna bushing to go from the antenna to the fender. Anyone got one laying around let me know.
    101_1738.jpg

    This is just a quick shot of the intake I worked out. Seemed to be much better than paying out the arse for a new one and it seems to be running better with it.
    101_1734.jpg

    Also on to the bumper so I got a bunch mocked up for it and all the material is in hand....just waiting on the frame as I said last week:)

    101_1737.jpg

    Also I need a lil help trying to figure out the resetting of the seatbelts.

    As far as I understand they have a module that needs to be reset by a pro for them to function again...Is that on the right path of thinking?

    Does anyone have a set they want to sell??

    SRS module has been replaced for the airbags, but do the seatbelts have one too or is it part of the actual seatbelt that I would have rebuilt?

    I found a service guy that does them for $65 but want to make sure that that was it. The passenger side one is locked but wasnt used when the accident happened so it leads me to believe that there has to be some sort of module to reset/replace. Anyways all help is very much appreciated.

    Dang...I noticed the leafsprings not smiling when I was taking measurements to fab up a new rear bumper....Guess the wife is going to have to come up off of that money for the suspension after all.....Ya!

    I played it off like- dang its gonna cost the same to replace with stock as it would to put a nice lift on it! Ha gotta play that sad face card every once in awhile to get the goods!!

    More to come on that as it comes

    101_1732.jpg
    Big smile on the tacos face tho when she heard about the new suspension!!

    Now if I can only figure out how to talk her into a new set of skins!!

    Ok so the seatbelts are attached to the SRS module that controls the airbags. When the airbag deploys the tensioner that is gas driven(?), i guess is what the russian guy is telling me, releases a lock so that the seatbelts cannot be reused with out a technician resetting the tensioners and verifying that the belts are to proper working factory specs before they can be reinstalled and used in another accident....hopfully not tho. Anyways it is 65 bucks per belt so a total of 140with shipping. Lucky that the rear jumpseat ones werent attached to that same circuit...280 would have just killed me.

    subbed, you might want to start a photobucket account to make your pics big instead of just attached thumbnails, then you can snap the pic with your smartphone and upload it to photobucket via the app and copy and paste the img code in your update and your pics show up big, looks good btw
