yeah, I considered pulling the A pillar and routing it up above the mirror, but my XLT doesn't have a center console up there, and I didn't want to get into pulling the headliner down.

yesterday, I took my dewalt angle grinder with a rust stripper wheel to a 2" patch on the roof where the otherwise near-perfect white paint had gotten chipped off and was rusted up pretty good. 30s with that stripper wheel and I was looking at shiny metal. sprayed it with some white anti-rust primer I had left over from another project .... today the Duplicolor Oxford White spray can + clear coat spray cans came... so nice warm day, no wind, perfect for painting. laid down 3-4 light coats of the white, let sit about an hour, then laid down 2-3 coats of the clear 10-20 minutes apart. now I wait two days, then I'll hit it with the medium-cut cleaner compound, then the swirl remover/polish, then wax it. its not a body shop perfect job, there's a hint of a dent I didn't even try to fill, but you'll need to look pretty close to see it, and its on the roof, so you'd best be standing on the bed

2002 F250 Super Cab XLT longbed, white. stock except stereo and shell.

....old enough to know better....

Iím guessing they are just saying it just makes noise under load. My thought was the pilot bearing but oh well. I did their little test and it appears to be glazing. Iím pretty happy.

Installed a new serpentine belt, belt tensioner, and upper idler pulley. Discovered the EBPS line is completely rusted and has multiple holes in the line.
