thanks for the heads up man! I actually did the same thing without the discos.. I only have a mile drive to work and mile back so I will most likely be disconnected most of the time anyways.

I got it pretty tight wish the rubber washers but I will keep an eye out.

what truck bed coating do you use? How much is it?
thanks! I used herculiner for the grill and bumpers. most people don't like it because it fades.. but I like the faded look better anyways. it was $100 for a gallon and I haven't even used half of it yet. also I painter over it today and think it looks great! no complaints here!

I'm sure the tire carrier wouldn't cost way too much but I dunno. the eyelids are VHT nite shades

BLACK04WJ, Ive been wanting to do my head lights exactly like yours ( the eyelid) but, I cant think of a good way to make them even or the same on both sides. How did you do it? And if I could ask you for a favor: Can you measure from the top of the head light to the lowest point of the eyelid? Because if I have that measurement, then I can easily angle the tape to the end of the light. Thanks!

Is it broken?

I just taped off the parts I wanted to be left unpainted and then used vht nite shades to tint everything else. I can measure them tomorrow if you want. I didn't measure when I did it though.. just go how far you want without covering your high beams.
