    Well, since there's no chatroom I figured we could chat here. What is going on my fellow insomniacs?

    On?

    I have to put an exhaust on the truck today. Had to pick up some mig wire too. Ran out as I was welding some of the exhaust up yesterday.

    Well, a few days ago I buried my brother's 80 K5 in 6 feet of salt water. We were riding it like a surf board after that, until the tow truck showed up. Water was up to the bottoms of the windows (and inside of course) and the waves were crashing over the top of the roof. It was rising and falling every time a wave came in (weird feeling) and would have rolled in another 10 mins or so. I would have gotten pictures, but the digi camera was floating in the center console.

    So needless to say, we spent the entire day today changing every fluid in the truck. :D

    Changed the engine oil, tranny fluid, t-case oil, both diffs and radiator water (how it got in that sealed/pressurized system I dunno lol). They were all severly contaminated. Every drain plug we pulled and both diff covers just spewed straight water for the first few seconds before the milkshake-like oil started running out. Only fluid we forgot was power steering, that'll get changed tomorrow. Oh, then we'll run it around the block few times and change it all again (to flush out the contaminates). Fun fun!

    Interior came out yesterday. Top comes off tomorrow. It was strange pulling seaweed out of the suspension and prying driftwood out from under the hood. Still finding sand.... everywhere.

    The camera is still in the drying phase. lol I highly doubt it'll work. Between me, my brother and my father (we all build/wheel K5's) we've gone thru.... uhm.... 5 or 6 cameras in the past 2 years. We're very hard on them... maybe that's why my g/f wont loan me hers. lol

    edit: oh, and I forgot to drop it in neutral when the tow truck pulled it out of the surf (with all the excitement). As soon as it was above the water line I could hear the tranny rachetting and I remembered (I think I made up some new cuss words at that very moment). Tranny seems to be working okay now tho (tho only driven it 20 feet since we changed the fluid). Hope its okay, dont wanna go find another t-350 to mate to a 205, all our spares are for 203's. It was a rough day at sea...

    Sounds like you need some kind of underwater divers camera that is shark bite proof.
