Get to work and keep the pics comin!
I've knocked off my ambitious motivation in the last day or so cuz of a grudge. I will definitely post a pic of the vents, though

Lol, based on scoping out everyones build threads, it appears that almost no one has any motivation lately. I think we are all ready for spring!

There's been a lot of b!tching and arguing going on and everybody is tired of that being the topic. The vets are all tired of answering ?'s, if all they wanna do is say "Go read!", maybe they should go get a job at the library.

Here's my opinion poll. Together or apart? I kinda like the together cuz it adds the depth of the center rib to the height of the dp.

I think if your doing to go DP all the way you should maybe think about a color change. On the fire truck they use DP and it looks pretty good, its a nice contrast against a bright color.

I truly hate this color, but it matches the dirt and the sunlight makes the dp match the paint

I think I see what you're saying, but I only have two vents left. Those are getting used for the end caps for the front bumper
