Thanks Guy's.



Well Sunday I worked on the front axle some more.
I after the por-15 I did the etch primer and then a top coat of spray can black.


Then I started to clean up the brake's and hubs.
After sandblasting and de greased.


Soaking in a metal etcher.


Then after por 15 - primer and top coat.


Then I set out to work on the rear. I finished up a few last min welding items and took the hubs off so next weekend I install the locker, and gears. And clean and paint it.


Powder coated the battery tied down and finally got the color in which I wanted the diff to be. Using new color of powder takes a learning curve with the cure time.



Lastly a little side not. Make sure to always where gloves, even if its a little task. I went to wire brush part of my spindle. Less then 5mins of work, and it slipped and got my hand

Awesome progress but be careful, If I had a dollar for every time I took a wirebrush to the hand,... Id prolly have enough to buy a few boxes of bandaids.

Bored at between class today. So I was thinking of a creative way to incorporate my reverse lights into my bumper. If you noticed that slit in the middle of it. Its there for a reason. I plan to but a 20" RGB LED bar in there.
So my goal is to have it so that when the brake is pressed it lights up red. and when the in reverse it will light up white.

The only issue is that these LED bars are common anode and I really need a common cathode configuration. For those that care. A common anode is where the led's share a +12 connection and an common cathode is when there share a ground.

So in order to get what I need I drew up a quick circuit. I should be getting the parts in a couple weeks.
