I've been planning on doing that, I'm just concerned about getting them exactly where they were so I don't have ghosting or the letters are crooked.

Thanks for your responses. I like your rig man it's nice. Doing some of the same things that I want to do to my rig.


the bike rack is a peice of steel bolted onto the bed and a peice of square tubing welded onto it. i used a bike floor stand and stick it into the square tubing with a cotter pin to keep it in place.also with thebadges, after i painted them and put new tape you can easily line them up because you can see right where they were before from their outlines.

heres the bike rack:

I need to do some work on my interior this month. This is giving me some ideas.

Planning on doing the gauges, swapping out my armrest and cupholders, new sub enclosure, building a platform, and we shall see what else. How did you do the ignition lighting now?

sounds awesome! cant wait to see that. i just got a new sub enclosure too. the ignition was done when the rest of the dash trim was off. there is one screw you will see on the ingition peice when the rest of the trim is off. take out that screw and the plastic housing will come off, there is a size 74 bulb just twist and pull out the bulb harness and replace with led bulb. that sounds complicated but when you see it you will figure it out.

My current sub enclosure isn't allowing enough airspace for my new Kicker 8" sub. So eventually I'm going to build one. Hopefully this month. I didn't realize the ignition was suppose to light up though...interesting. I'm always fumbling in the dark after work to put my key in I want to try and find the LEDs locally though. If I can't, then I'll order some. I like too how you executed your TRD on the exhaust tip. I have a question about the grille too. Is it recessed? Or did you put a grillecraft on? I like the way it came out...got any recent pics of it on your truck? Or just the one on the first page?
