When I get home this weekend to work on the truck I will look for my notes on the stripe spacing. I know that the spacing started out smaller in the front of the truck (grille) and got larger on the hood to the tailgate.

I have to admit, the mirrors are kinda cheap . Mine are the manual ones. No chrome, just plastic. They have been replaced but they still move back when going over 65 mph. I have been thinking about getting some nice power ones, probably aftermarkets.

I forgot to grab the piece of paper I had wrote down the dimensions on.

I do remember that the stripes on the grille were 11" and the spacing was 5-3/4". The stripes get larger front to back (on the hood). The stripes on the tailgate are larger than the ones on the hood and grille.

Had a busy weekend. Didn't get everything done that I had on my list but I did manage to get some things done. I was able to fix the P0441 Evaporative Emission Purge Flow Incorrect by replacing the Purge Solenoid, the Vapor Canister, and by blowing compressed air through the lines.

Couldn't get the vapor canister at autozone/advanced auto. I had to go to a dealership. It cost 60 dollars (they have a recall kit, it comes with both the purge soleniod and the vapor canister). They charge 75 for just the canister by itself. So, the recall kit is a bargin.

I also had to sand and paint the vapor canistor cradle (located under the drivers side). It was rusted pretty badly.

I also replaced the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor since its the only one left thats original. So now the truck has all new sensors on the motor.

I was able to get the decals on the truck. The only one I don't have on is the "Dodge" tailgate decal. I ordered the wrong size.

Are those mirrors on your truck like the ones on the SST's?? I wanna ditch my stock 96' mirrors. They aren't very sporty looking and they fold back all the time going down the highway . I like the SST mirrors better.

I have tightened them numerous times. I looked at my wiring harnesses on the doors. Drivers side has an 8 pin (I presume for the mirror control switch) and one 3 pin (for the mirror). Passenger side only has one 3 pin connector.

I have seen some power heated mirrors for sale on ebay but im sure they wont fit (electrically) with my truck. I will have to mod the harness, which is no biggie. I am curious how your mod worked. Both if they fit mechanically and electrically.

Over the past couple of weekends I have been working as much as possible on the truck. There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get done what I need.
Last weekend I got the mirrors installed and some of the interior removed.

This weekend I removed and replaced the diff. cover with a nice chrome Mopar one that has a threaded fill plug. Wish I had the limited slip rear end instead of the open one, I didn't order the truck though (2nd owner).

I also got new door lock actuators installed. What a pain. The headliner and the sun visors went in pretty well. Luckily my younger brother was around to help. Definitely a 2 man job.

I re-installed the mud flaps that I had. Since the truck was re-painted I had to re-drill out the holes.

I think overall, the truck is comming together pretty nicely.
