A Day Devoted to My Truck!
Today I decided I'd not step foot into a garden and take advantage of the weather and work on my 2003 Nissan Frontier (which I dearly love) while it was cooler outside. These trucks had the option to have a cabin filter, but most didn't come with it. So I pulled out the glove box, cut out the hole for the filter (was pre-marked from the factory), and installed the cabin filter that I picked up from the dealership this morning. Really not a difficult thing to do at all.
Vacuumed out the car, cleaned the interior glass & vinyls, washed the car, Rain-X'd the outside glass and got new Firestone Destination LE2 tires for better traction installed this afternoon. Believe it or not, this truck was still rolling on it's original tires...which weren't very good when they were new. I'm looking forward to seeing how these handle in the snow, they were very high rated online.
RAGBRAI starts here tomorrow, so we've got 30 bikers tenting next door. That should make for an interesting evening. They'd be smart to sleep instead of party with the ride tomorrow, hopefully they will.
Got to have a few pics, I'm proud of my "older" truck, it only has 61k miles on it, and averages 22 mpg. I've put quite a bit of work into maintaining it since I purchased it a few years ago. Feels & looks like a new truck again!

You've motivated me to get out and clean my poor old car :D
I need to clean my car too. Yours looks great Jewell, still looks as good as new :)
Oops ... I mean Pianolady!
Nice truck. What's a cabin filter?
Well I'm impressed by all your hard work as I'd have said it was a new truck!! Older models are so much more reliable than some of the modern ones and yours is a real beauty.
Thanks all! A cabin filter is an air filter for the air conditioning and heating system of the the car. If you have one, I think you change it every 60k miles (sooner imo), if you don't have one, it may have been an option for your car and easy to add.
Nice ride there, Pianolady!
