Well I cleared my schedule this coming Monday so I can get some surgery done........on my Smittybuilt stinger. I'm hacking the stinger off and welding on the hoop in the pics I previously posted. I'll post some pre and post-op pics.

Me too! I haven't seen anyone do to a Smitty stinger what I'm about to do, which either makes me a pioneer or an idiot..........we shall see.

And so begins the nose job. Started by hacking the stinger off the Smitty bumper. Then I fabbed up some funky little plates to cover the holes.

The Smitty welds were suprisingly stout and took a while to cut through. The "powdercoat" however was a different story, it was no match for a 60 grit flapper disc. I will take the flapper disc to the entire bumper to get it down to smooth metal and then repaint it satin black to match everything else on the Jeep. I never have cared for the crinkle finish that came on the bumper.

Plates and light hoop getting the hook-up. That's my buddy doing the welding. We attached some light tabs on the hoop and got everything welded up. Tomorrow I will clean up the welds and get it painted. I love how it's looking so far.
