Thanks!! So from the looks of things.. Im probably not going to get the rear fenders done before our trip in OCT but I am going to attempt a tank tuck next week and hopefully I can get the courage to cut the rear fenders and move the EVAP canister before we go. Also, I need front bumpstops so I dont tear anything I am so pumped that I got work off for the trip!!! I should be down in the mid evening on thursday and staying the whole time

Thanks man! I appreciate the compliments. the front bumper is fairly simple to do.. I used an oscillating saw and it worked perfect!! I trimmed a LOT off of it.. probably more than I needed to but it turned out good I think if you would like.. I can put the bumper back on tomorrow so you can have a better idea of where to cut.

Today I got a little progress on the fenders.. It was raining all morning so I could only work in my shed but that wasnt a problem I got the driver side fender sanded/primed/painted and mounted!! This one went on so much better than the first!! I was getting ready to take pictures when it started pouring and I got called in to work ha. I will take pics when I go on my lunch
