On a different forum (for a different vehicle) I belong to, I started a thread entitled "What did you do to YOUR **** today?"
In the 9-1/2 years since I started it, it's had 376920 views and 3805 replies. Sometimes we do little things to our rides, but we think "Oh, nobodies going to be interested in me doing [I]that[/I]!" so it doesn't get posted. But I'm sure we all like to see what others are doing, and they like to see what [I]we're[/I] doing. It helps build a sense of community. It's like Red Green (http://www.redgreen.com/
) used to say "Remember, I'm pullin' for ya! We're all in this together!"
So even if you don't think anybody else cares, we do! So go ahead and feel free to post what you did to your ride right here! Even if it was just a "little" thing!
When I get off work, especially during the warmer months of the year, my work shirt and the T-shirt I wear under it can rather 'damp'. Knowhutimean, Vern? The cloth seat in my '99 Grand Voyager, my previous daily driver, has a permanent discoloration because of that. I wanted to avoid that with my '04 TB, so I bought this seat cover https://www.autozone.com/interior/se...over/76635_0_0
Install wasn't [I]too[/I] bad, once I completely unbolted the seat and tipped it backwards! Getting the straps hooked up under the seat would have been next to impossible with all the stuff under that seat! But it's been on for about a month and it's holding up very well. For $30 I'm not expecting miracles, but so far I've been very pleased with it!
When I bought this TB, the drivers seat back did not recline or come forward. The entire seat would go forward and backward, up and down, and tilt forward or back, but the seat back would not move. The switch panels were barely hanging onto the seat, as well. I went to the U-Pull-It here in Lincoln, and found some switch panels which I installed at the same time as I installed the seat cover. I used the same seat switch that came on the replacement panel as it was identical to my old switch. I installed the panel and had all the power functions of my seat restored!
That was when I discovered that the round switch on the top left was different between my TB and whatever year the panels came from!
The switch controls the lumbar support in the seat. Mine was larger and had a plastic line down the center. This one is smaller, and has a cross pattern on it. The electrical connectors are way different, so this switch won't work on my TB. I will get the proper panel as soon as I find one in good shape. In the meantime, this panel is installed, and the old switch is still connected, just tucked up under the front of the seat. Ya does what ya got's to!
So, the question remains: What did you do to YOUR TrailVoy today?
