I grabbed a roto-zip type bit for my dremel at lowes, and grabbed a sheet of 1/4" plywood, and went to town.
Took a while, i had to make 1 that came out horrible, remake another that fit well but didnt come close enough to the wheel well, then spend a ton of time sanding and grinding one to fit just right, and then used that one to make the template for the other side.
After maybe 2 hours and all this:
I had 2 perfectly shaped side panels!
These will get covered with Al's Liner when it arrives.
Then moved on to an additional project that I'm not entirely sure how to proceed with. I picked up some el cheapo lights for the truck, not that I do alot of night wheeling, but when setting up camp and whatnot you can never have too much light i figure. I knew i wanted to mount a set on the rear of the truck, but I grabbed a second set and thought maybe I could put them on the front.
I fiddled around with them but couldnt find anywhere that I really liked. They fit fine and would work well on the bumper, but they hang down and kind of just look out of place to me.
Any suggestions? Maybe i could mount them up further behind the bumper on the frame so they are less in view? I could easily weld up a little bracket for that.
The ones on the back are going to be installed as such:
Nice and out of the way, but will provide plenty of light for setting up behind the wag (i tend to back into campgrounds to unload) and they will be good for hooking up my future trailers as well! They are mounted to the rear frame crossmember, so they are behind the bumper and out of the way, looks a little deceiving in the pic, but they are behind the bumper.
Anyway, thats all I did tonight. time for a beer and some TV!
