    Another post Covid-19 project series; first, a oil/filter change and second, the upgrade to a Saudi-transmission cooler. (Which should have been a standard Raptor part).

    Yeah, a member on here posted "a how to", was easy to do on my scab and cheap. I don't use the heated seat much I guess, I know they are a weak issue for the drivers seat. I wish I only had less than 80k on mine.

    Got out the wire brush and sander, cleaned up the rear hitch and hooks, they were looking like crap, painted with gloss black Tremclad. IMAG0528.jpg IMAG0529.jpg IMAG0530.jpg IMAG0531.jpg IMAG0532.jpg Then got all worried and paranoid after @FordTechOne said the cab corners rust out, so sprayed another can of fluid film everywhere under the rockers and scab corners. Should be good for another winter on the "Highway thru Hell"

    I can see the excessive fluid film and I love it.
