Any Pics of unusual mods or DIY

ok, would like to see something different today.

I have already painted my stock rims and have them on the truck already. So yesterday i finally painted the center caps and today i painted the the toyota emblem in the center of the cap red. I know , I know, i have no pictures yet, letting them dry overnight. its not that unusual , but different. So how about some pics of unusual / weard stuff. May-be we'll have some laughs?

This was my mod of the day. Not one that I wanted to do today but the F%$&ing deer jumped out from in front of the car next to me and I couldn't see it until it was too late.

looks to me like the deer hit the corner, a bull bar would have done nothing for that. The bull bar will only protect the very middle...

I think it hurt my confidence in my driving more than anything else. Ya the truck is banged up but our trucks are so tough that even with a big bruise like that it can still survive a 100 mile trip home at highway speeds. Scangauge didn't throw any codes and with the exception of one headlight not working I couldn't tell a difference in the way it drove. Most importantly nobody was hurt. Sorry Skistoy for hijacking your thread.

I have what I call my "nightrider" mod. LEDs in my hood scoop connected to a strobe controller in my cab.

Here is a pic of the making of the "mod" I guess we'll call it a mod.
