I just ordered the front truss, I welded on the C-Gussets last weekend, fit like a glove. When do you think you'll get around to the install?

Exactly what I've been wanting to see. I wondered how the color was with the covers vs the amber bulb version. Looks good

The lens covers are very very dark amber. Roughly turn signals with a couple passes of night shades over them. In turn because they're a cover, they don't produce as much light as they would without, and the yellow they produce is lighter than what the actual yellow LEDs make. But I'm ok with that.

The slightly whiter yellow has a little more contrast for all the blacktop roads we have around here vs concrete towards downtown, plus the reduced output and color spectrum change means I can get away with using them on the street more than I did before. Plus they pop of in like 5 seconds if I want to go from 2800k to 5100k

I have a minor update, just Havnt had a chance to write it. Too busy. I'm going to get it up tomorrow night

I had to order a W size drill bit from dewalt before I can put my sliders on. No one sells .386" OD bits anywhere.

Also need a angle drill to instal my tire carrier. Need to find one.

alright - lets get this party started


re-cap: rockers



titan tub armor - sanded



rocker skins - sanded



i dont have any "in process" pictures, but i can tell you i used Rustoleum Professional Aluminum self-etch primer (yes its specifically made for aluminum) on the tub armor. then i hit it with rustoleum black semi-gloss. the rocker skins simply got sanded, cleaned and then hit with 4 full cans of Rustoleum truck bed liner, which came out REALLY nice



i then decided that since i dont have a 90* drill yet, or a W (.386") drill bit yet, id work on something else id been meaning to do. i would have done either the sleeves or start working on the truss, but it was raining and i didnt want to push my dads tool chest with all my stuff in it up to the barn in the rain. (yeah i know, i need my own chest)

so removed my re-pin job of my factory foglight harness so i could connect my Rigid's to my sPOD. first up was cutting apart the harness the rigid's came with. crimped, soldered and heat shrinker



hooked up to the sPOD



then i cut the whole connector from my auto sway bar disco off, because its useless and was just hanging on the front crossmember filling with water.



i needed a way to seal it, without using ghetto electrical tape. so what i did was i took a piece of heat shrink tubing appropriately sized for the bundle of wires and heated up my needle nose pliers in my torch and sealed the end



wire condom



sealed away, for all of time



then i decided to do the same thing to the OEM foglight pins, so the factory harness could be retained for some devilish reasons i have.



tits



double tits



removed my plate



white and yellow




more updates this weekend
