Today I drove the truck in what I think is the last trip with the internal combustion engine (ICE). I drove it from my house to the shop where we will be doing the work. I noticed a few weeks ago that I had a radiator leak and so I pretty much stopped driving it.
It wasn't too bad so I wasn't very worried about driving it today. But when I got there a fair amount of water/coolant was dripping from the front. I looked at the radiator, and it looks like there is now a significant crack there that I didn't notice before. So this was definitely timely. To keep the ICE in this truck any longer I would need to spend some $$$ on a new radiator and hoses.
To top it all off, I was almost out of gas. So - good timing!
Oh, and what will I be driving while my truck is being converted? Scroll down below and see the picture of my recent impulse buy.
