    Rear drive shaft took a dump on me, decided to break while driving to work. In for the back half of the rear drive shaft and some ujoints. I need to do a carrier bearing drop or maybe add shims under my leafs for a better pinion angle.

    Been touching up where ive bedlined on the truck and hunting for new wheels/tires while playing with crypto currency to finance them.

    Question: what is the best way to remove fine dust that's coating every single inch of my Taco?
    (light-hearted diatribe to follow)
    I am bummed, the lowlife that sold me the truck failed to mention he had been driving behind a Winnebago thru Baja California with the windows down collecting half of Mexico's mineral resources since 2014. I may be overexaggerating a bit. I am finding fine dust everywhere. You might be thinking, SaintTaco
    didn't you notice the dust? I retort, NO, He did a mighty fine job of cleaning the surfaces that my peepers could observe. Take a look-see at this pic.
    Can anyone guess where the first pic is from? my neighbor thought a Sirocco had engulfed our street, but it was only I blowing dust from under the dashboard. I've learned many lessons from this purchase.

    That is nothing lol. But, what I did personally is step 1: shop vac all the loose stuff. If you get a rigid from home depot they sell an auto detailing kit which includes a nice small nozzle to get into tight places and the orange hose provided is infinitely better than the crappy hose included with the vac. Once you are done with that, you are going to want a bunch of CHEAP microfibers. Ones that you are going to use once and toss em. Then just lightly spray some soapy water and start wiping it up. In hard to reach or sensitive areas you can spray onto the microfiber first. An alternate to soapy water would be any generic APC diluted at least 1:1 with water or even more water.

    A few mods here and there and counting....
    I would rip the entire interior out along w the carpet. It isn't that difficult and you'll be able to reach/clean all the cavities and crevices to your satisfaction.

    You never know what you are gonna find under there! I found a couple pounds of sun flower seeds, a light, 3 pens, a fork, and some air craft fittings. Oh and a few pounds of dirt. Bonus dirt/brake fluid mix on the driver side. But it was worth it and I ditched that nasty carpet for the all weather flooring.
