    One more.. Rims are on.. finally got a decent day to take a picture and the camera dies right after this one. Stupid batteries.

    The reason the picture looks a little washed out, the flash activated.. no idea why.

    Here we go again. Just finished mounting the FireStick FS antenna for the CB. CB will be mounted by next weekend, have to fab up a bracket for the back of it to keep it from moving when/if I hit hard bumps :D

    [​IMG]

    Mounting bracket.. well-nutted.

    God damned rims are dirty... sigh
    [​IMG]

    Passenger side leaf spring... um... WEAK!
    [​IMG]

    Opinions? Figure I did manage to twist the tie rod... hard to tell about anything else when you're laying on your side uncomfortably. :)

    Obligatory frontal. (Yeah I know that little plastic piece is missing.. stupid black ice.)

    Holy crap, dude! You're goin' off! Looks good. I am still chasing down some bits and pieces before I put my 5-packs on. I need to get some OME 881s first.
