Boy, I don't know haha. I really like what I'm learning, don't get me wrong. Mechanical engineering is supercool. I'm just a little burned out right now because I have been going non stop for 6 semesters straight. That is a lot of school and I'm ready for a break! But, this summer is going to be full of wheelin' and working! It is gonna be great. Just have to survive one more week til finals are over

I used metal L shaped metal brackets to mount to hood. Got the lights at advance auto. And the black metal peice is at any hardware store. Spent like $50 to make the whole setup

That's pretty slick. Unfortunately the Nautique is using all our racks.

Thinking of making my own Vented Hood.
I am looking at using some sort of metal mesh to replace the sections of the hood that are cut out. It would be painted flat black.
Not sure how i want to install it.
The mesh overlapping the hood, the mesh installed on top of the hood.
or
The hood overlapping the mesh, the mesh installed from under the hood.
They would be attached with either screws or rivets.
Different metal mesh looks.

Oh and I vote for option 2 on the mesh style.

Yep, sort of like that. Good write up and nice visuals.
I'm thinking 2 stripes on either side of the center line reinforcement brace with rounded ends. Maybe have it bulge up out of the hole so it is flush with the rest of the hood.
Now I want to get another hood to figure it out on.

Pic 1 - 3 Ball, coupler that matches thread pitch on shifter, nut with same thread pitch.
Pic 2 - Drill pressed it out just enough for the coupler. Filled the hole with Liquid Nails and taped off the coupler so that when I put it in I wouldn't get any adhesive into the threads.
Pic 3 - Tapped the coupler in, let the Liquid Nails cure.
Pic 4 - Installed. Nut went on first. Positioned the 3 how I wanted it then counter tightened the nut so that some a$$ walking through a parking lot while I'm getting my groceries can't snag it with out some wrenches

Pic 5/6 - Sub box. Downward firing tens. Stereo build thread - http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f37/t...build-1428651/

Pic 7/8 - DIY Hiline Fender mod. Didn't make this technically, but I'm proud of it none the less. This mod, Xenon flat flares and 2" BB cleared 35" meats without an issue.

Pic 9 - Today's carnage. Hope to be able to keep my stereo gear, optima battery, shifter knob, tires, etc. The rule of thumb is if they total it out, anything and everything bolted to the vehicle gets totaled out with it... slick road, swampers, sharp turn...BOOM.
Hey Redjeep John can I have a write up on the DIY highline fenders please
