The interior door handles (F250) broke around 125K.. electric window stopped electrolysing.. This of course was the only way to get out ..wind down windows, reach out unlock door.. Lucky for me it failed while down.. SO .. Found a plastic table top made for a kids table..

Duck taping the new "window" in place was no big deal.. What was cool was cutting three horizontal slits each @ 2" wide and 6-8" long into the plastic so i could see..Then of course i had to come up with a way to reach thru to unlock the door from the inside.. So i cut a square in the bottom back part of my new hell for stout genuine ford plastic window, leaving the forward part scored so i could fold it open..

Pulling up next to any Prius, or similar little cap and trade inspired car with a 1" exhaust pipe (that you cant hear) in my "red" with smoke belching, and the normally loud diesel even louder cause of all the holes in the exhaust system is a trip to start with.. When i would push the little folding square out and reach thru to open the door.. I really got the "white trash" look.. Sorta hated to get it fixed.. Still have the "window" in the back of the cab..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I swear by rainX..

all my trucks have it applied year round, plus saves money on replacing wipers..just dont put it on your mirrors or you'll be sorry

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

When I was stationed in Japan, I had a little van I drove around in. Made by Daihatsu. I was so close to the windshield I could reach out and flip the wipers back and forth. I know because I had to one night for about 15 miles in pouring rain. I got back to the boat though!!!

I didn't know you had gone to Japan (or I forgot) very cool. My van had rubber u-joints on the axles, I would rev it up and dump the clutch so I carried spares in the glove box. I had beach towels for curtains carpeted floor, and it was just big enough for me to sleep from corner to corner. I had the hottest Kenwood Supertuner III stereo when Styx and Supertramp first came out!

Hamp, driving one in the rain was a whole new ball game! A girlfriend of mine had the same thing in a truck. If I didn't want her to leave I would pick up the whole ass end and side step her a 180
