Got some things done! (lift, bumper, paint)
 
The RK 2.5 lift is now on, and a stinger bumper made by STORM_JK. Did a test-run plasti-dip on my grill, too.

Bought some gutter guard for the grill mod, but couldn't for the life of me find those anchors to zip-tie to. I'll look again tomorrow.

Looks good.

I got my zip tie mounts from home depot. like $9.99 for 100 or something.

Looks nice. I want to plasti-dip my grill too.

Oh i also modified my version of this and used screening behind the gutter guard. The hole were still to big for my liking and still got bugs in the grill.

I have this same screening on my 02 AV from day one. The radiator looks brand new and no over heating issues.

Home depot is the only place I didn't check. Went to Walmart, Princess Auto, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, Lowe's, and a Dollar store. Surprised I couldn't find them...

I have a home depot like, 5 minutes from my place so I'll check there. Thanks!

As for the "screening", I thought the same. Gutter guard looks like it has big holes might want it a bit smaller.

Nice bike :cool:

Oh and I guess the Jeep looks alright too... hahaha I didnt check home depot for the zip tie thingies, ordered mine online. Didn't stick worth a damn so if you find some let me know! My grill is that mesh Canadian Tire sells.

Nice shovel. Whats the deal with that. Does it come off. Looks bolted on

I found the anchors today at Home Depot. They didn't have the big packs, just 10packs, so I bought 4. I haven't mounted them yet as I'm repainting the grill. ;)

I found the gutter guard at Home Hardware. The one near you had a VIP night, stopped in on the way back from meeting you and got it for 15% off or so.

Trim those fenders!

STORM_JK 11-26-2013 09:01 PM

That was before I built my bumper. Welded a bolt to the top of the tow hook, drilled some holes in the shovel and voila! Take off 2 nuts and the shovel slides right out.

Tragyn 11-26-2013 09:06 PM

Hey did I leave a retaining clip and a plastic washer on your garage floor...? I noticed today that the sway link on one side was missing the hardware. Go figure it was the one I put on, so I bet I just forgot to put the clip on...

STORM_JK 11-26-2013 09:21 PM

Might be back in the bag, did a massive clean up and would have noticed that, worst case I've got plenty of clips and the washer can always be swapped for a regular steel one, which I also have, both in the Heep lol

What are you doing with those trackbar brackets we took off? I'll probably end up doing a frankenlift getting pieces here and there if ever you didn't plan on selling the previous lift as a kit.

Now go play in the snow!

Tragyn 11-26-2013 09:30 PM

I don't need the clip, was just wondering if I just forgot to put it on, or if it popped off so easily (which I doubt). I'll pick one up somewhere!

As for the bracket, you're welcome to 'em (and any other part we took off). I won't be using it again (as far as I know) and selling it would be a little sleazy if you can get use out of 'em.

STORM_JK 11-26-2013 09:40 PM

Wow cool thanks! Were still trading tires right? Haha Should be getting some MTRKs soon, then ill be good for a bit I hope

Tragyn 11-26-2013 09:45 PM

I had a couple good slides in the wet snow today...might need to get some tires myself, haha. Small chance finding tires my size used...gonna have to buy new. Money I didn't want to spend right now.

I know Toyo has a rebate on winters going till December 15th and it looks like lots of other manufacturers do as well!
