Don't be a smartass. You know what I mean. It just doesn't sound right if I say the recovery points are mounted directly to the unibody.

Painted the interior trim pieces today. Got rid of that ugly faux wood.









Brakes come in next week. Up next, upgrading to slotted and drilled rotors.

Love the mods. How did you do the grill? Looks great! My other question is how you cleared the corner lights. I'd like to do the same to mine

The corner lights were pretty easy. Just bought clear ones and put them in. lol.

The grill was a little more in depth.

1 First I took a wire cutter and snipped all the plastic innards out of all the grill openings and made sure they were smooth.

2 I used 600 grain sandpaper to rough up the chrome surface. Took a LOT of sanding.

3 Cleaned it off with mineral spirits.

4 Sprayed it with 3 coats Krylon Fusion satin black. About 1 hour between each coat. Let it dry overnight, then did 2 coats satin clear.

5 The inserts were gutter guard mesh from home depot. I cut squares about 1/2 inch larger that the backside of the holes in the grill opening.

6 Drilled a hole in the lip of the openings on each side. (top, bottom, left, right)

7 Used black zip ties to secure the mesh to the grill. Folded excess mesh over outside of the back of the openings.

8 Made 1 relief cut in 3rd opening from left to give room for hood latch.


VIOLA.
