I've found myself needing to make sure either I do a reglue of the rearview mirror either in a warm garage or make sure it's spring/fall outside. When I've put them on in the summer, they pop right back off in the winter, and vice versa. But I'm using the kind of "super glue" like kits that gives you a bluish wipe to prep the glass and a little squeeze tube for the glue.

BroncMom: It always comes down to prep. I'll have to snap a pic of the inside of my dad's rig windshield, where I had done the best glue job I've ever done, because Dad went to adjust the mirror, and the glass itself came off the inside, button, mirror and all!
Essentially, clean the glass and button with brake clean, abrade the glass and button with crocus cloth and reclean, then apply the adhesive, put in place, hold for at least one minute, then allow to cure 1-2 days, depending on outside temps before installing the mirror.

I walked out to mine Sunday and the mirror was hanging by the wires. I used Permatex Extreme. It was all the local shop had. It seems to be working.

goingcrazy Paid the storage fee on my bronco. That's all I have done to it for the last year. I have picked up a few parts but nothing has gone on it yet.

That price include upgrading the 3 pinion aluminum planetaries to steel 6 pinion planetaries used in the PowerStrokes?

BroncMom Got the tailgate sill plate installed, took off the driver side cargo panel to hook up the amp ground i missed yesterday, then had to take it off again to install the seatbelt hardware cover : also started to install the spare tire rack but decided to wait till the carpet was in. Why put it in just to pull it again in a week.

Im thinking either the TQ converter or clutches so I might be adding (removed the transmission) to this list soon

You'll get used to it... uphill back massage at 75 mph's!

Unfortunately for me it wasn't the TQ converter - "further back in the case" is what I was told. Any thoughts on what you are going to do to back up that monster engine?

Already believe the distributor I put in last Saturday went faulty. I've tested every damn thing on this truck related to wiring in the ignition and either I have extremely bad luck with 2 new distributors going bad in less than a week or something is causing them to fail.
Its very possible. I had one I chased a random no start on for a while, ended up replacing the distributor and that fixed it for about a month, then it started eating a tfi module in probably less than an hour. After the 3rd tfi, I replaced the distributor again, has running fine ever since....
