Yeah I cannot say there has been a time in my life when I didnt have money to spend. Even when I broke my femur this past Christmas and sat on a couch for 13 weeks, I needed to service my forks on my bike, buy gear, and find a Jeep. I accomplished the first and last heh. I still have my old gear, but I have a Jeep so I am please

Duplicolor spray on. It's been there for a year and hasn't faded.

I'm going to re do it soon though.

Yeah. Print it out, and take those instructions to a local electronic store. ( Not radioshack, they don't even sell radios anymore)

A good shop can set you up with a good set of materials.

I might be moving on to stage 3 of my build.

Yesterday, I got a set of moab rims, and they will be wrapped by 245 75 16 Bfg all terrains, not retreads. Those go on today.

And my rigidco fbg front bumper will come next week.
