    "Blinker fluid" - you're joking, right?

    No? You don't have blinker fluid in yours? Check under the steering wheel and toward the radio. It's back there, can't miss it.

    Sure there is.


    Drill the bottom of the blinker. If fluid comes out. You're good, if not, you're boned.

    Drill another hole in the top and refill with your choice of blinker fluid.

    Just remember to plug up the hole on the bottom before filling.

    It's probably just a lttle seepage from the grease on the joints in the column. Nothing to worry about...I think.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    If you're that worried, you should just take it in.

    I'm going to come and wash your truck in the night.
    And you're going to wake up to this...
