    A few shots from the receptacle install.


    I couldn't find the special clip in outlets that some of the other guys used so I just bought a regular dark gray one from Low's.

    I cut a section out of a 1" PVC bushing and epoxy it in to place. You can push as hard as you want, the receptacle won’t budge.

    I decided to go with the silver/black speckled paint because the powder coat guy said it would take the most abuse.

    Just finished my HID retro's, saved 25% on through a TW group buy, thanks TRS for the great deal!!

    I went with: FX-R 4, Orbit shrouds, Denso slim ballasts and 4300K bulbs.

    The headlights are OEM black chrome and I painted the inner bowls MGM (color match).

    The chrome shrouds just weren't working for me so cracked open the headlights and I painted them.

    The local CHP kindly recommended that the off road lights get covered or I get ticketed, so I color match painted the ugly white pro-comp covers.
