All I could manage today was sorting my collection of stainless steel tek screws and putting them into seperate containers--much easier now to find the length I need. Sure is nice to be able to grap the right length for the job without having to dump out 2 gallons of screws!

Just put 3 of the ugliest welds on the spare tire rack where the old studs pulled thru.

I'm having a similar problem... It fires up everytime I crank the key but as soon as I let go of the gas and let it idle it dies.

Starter growling again. Removed and cleaned cables, starter. Still growling. Stripped threads in bell housing. Bummer. Started removing parts from donor vehicle.

Started building my new front bumper (BESRK inspired). I used the chunk of factory bumper that i had chopped out of the middle of it a while back to make the mounting brackets using my 4 1/2 inch cnc plasma cutter...lol. I ordered 2 sets of clevis mounts from BESRK that will be added when they arrive.I will be capping the ends, adding light tabs and also will be cutting an angle on both ends mostly for looks as this is a pretty narrow bumper(45") and won't really be in the way of any approaches.I will be starting the rear bumper probably tomorrow weather pending.
