Cleaned out a squirrel nest from my airbox. I had my deck plate off for more vroom. But lately it didn't seem like I was getting that extra air. Went to check and saw fiberglass insulation poking out the deck plate hole. The critter also chewed a hole through my WIX reusable air filter element. Oh well it was getting pretty old. Bought some paper air filter, and closed up the hole.
So YMMV, but I use those tree shaped air “fresheners” with a vanilla something scent because rodents don’t like it. I hang two in the engine compartment & one under the dash/glovebox area. I take the old ones & put em inside the glovebox or under seats, etc. I haven’t had mice (or anything else) since, and I live at/in the edge of a forest. Prior to vanilla trees, wifelette & I had multiple nests in multiple vehicles.

Installed custom grill inserts and lettering, along with some driving lights to give the front end for a unique look.

Before:

308612


Pre-light install:
308610


308611


308613


Overall a fairly reasonably priced project, I think in total ran about $125, including supplies for install. Install was kind of a pain (very much a DIY project, with the help of some install videos). But the material quality was good. May repaint or wrap the letters in the future.

Lights are the 6 piece partsam set on amazon. Had to tint them a bit more orange to match the hue of the existing driving lights.

Grill inserts and lettering is from custom car grills. Matt was very helpful. The letters I ordered are 2.5 inches, the max you can fit in the center portion.

I'm pretty happy with it, maybe this can give you some ideas on grill mods in a market where there are seemingly few options.

Cheers,

Matt

The clutch pedal on my 1998 Frontier started having more free play the first few minutes, then returned to normal. At 244K, I decided to replace the clutch master and clutch slave cylinders as "preventive maintenance". All done !

Had to replace a motor mount on our lil boy, Maverick. Funny thing is...he was at 66613 miles when I brought him in and I landed on 666 points for my Coffee Bean app today on Friday the 13. That's a lot of 666 and 13! :ROFLMAO: Other than that, he's getting a bath. So nothing too exciting.

May I ask, What is the coffee bean app?
