My package from Northridge4x4 came in yesterday. I was excited because I actually had time to install it, but soon got completely bummed out when I realized they did not include the template to cut the hood.
A quick call to PSC and one is being mailed to me.
Good news for me and a big thumbs up to Poison Spyder Customs.....as soon as I realized the template was not in the box, I called PSC. The CS person told me they would send one out right away. Around lunch today, the FedEx guy dropped off a tube from PSC with the template. I was very impressed that they shipped it overnight for me.
In more good news, my Genright Trail Stinger came in.
Not too much with my Jeep. Just been enjoying driving it in the nice weather lately. I did get the PSC louver mounted, but it's not complete yet because half of the stainless hardware stripped or broke.
Unrelated to my Jeep, but fun anyway....I am rebuilding a little go-kart for my son.
It was given to me like this:
A little while later...this:
I am working on it in the maint. shop at work so my son doesn't know about it. It was hauled over to the sandblast and paint dept. They are blasting it and then will paint it black. I will reassemble from there. It needs a complete rewire, and then it will be ready to roll.
Bad pictures, but here is the louver all done.
I ended up having to buy new stainless hardware for about half of the bolt holes. The fine thread combined with weak hardware overall does not make for a good mix. The course thread stainless I picked up worked great.
I have also started working out my cowl intake. It is being created using a combo of these parts....(I do need to pick up one more connector to complete it).
I am hoping to get started on the hi-line fenders in the days following Christmas. I am trying to knock out all of the associated mods to allow the fenders to take their place.
The intake will be done shortly.
I have the hood pins, so they will be installed next.
I just ordered the windshied washer bottle from ebay today.
I need to pick up the hood trim from the parts store.
The last thing to work out is the battery tray and ABS tray. I am considering ordering the brackets that come with the AEV hi-line kit.
I gave the Jeep a little attention this weekend in the form of an oil change and bath. I almost hate washing it because I see how bad the paint is. It looks good from a few feet away, but up close it gets rough.
Ordered a few small items today. It's these little things that I have had on my list to order for a while. Just finally getting around to getting them ordered.
I almost ordered the rear corner armor, but decided to hold off a tick longer.
Hella E-Code housings.....so I can finally install my DDM Tuning HIDs
