tackling a nerve racking job

This morning I will be doing the dip stick oil leak fix. Its 5 degrees and my truck is on the side of the street at my job site. Not the best of conditions but its got to be done. If anyone has anywords of advice it would be great. I'm getting the inner seal the inch flange nut. Rtv loctite and some bore brushes. Wish me luck

No kidding, right. Shane's got one sweet looking ride.
Mine looked pretty good (for white) before I brought it to Taos. We don't salt the roads, but this place just beats the tar out of vehicles.

Sorry for the hijack OP and congrats on a fixed leak!
Good work!
