    I tapped into a fuse in the engine bay for the inside fan switch. Not ideal but works for now. One day i'm going to rewire to a switch or ignition on power source in the cab.

    Still new to this. Why do I sometimes see the word "sub or sub'd"/ What does this mean?

    For anyone struggling with that stupid weather seal...I had to figure out how to attach it on my own..It's a pain in the ass and time consuming but I did this about 2 months ago and it's still holding strong.
    Here's what I used:
    -Wire brush or low grit sand paper
    -3 or 4 small quick clamps
    -Loctite All purpose GO2 glue (home depot)
    -Patients

    Here's what i did:
    1- Use a small wire brush or something similar to score and rough the surfaces of both the grill and weatherstrip in the areas where the two attach.
    2- clean both surfaces with rubbing alcohol.
    3- apply glue and use small clamps to hold stripping in place... Work from the middle outward in sections. Let each section dry completely before moving on to the next section.
