    Thanks, Most of the mods I've done are cosmetic. I've blacked out everything from the rear bumper to the tail pipe. The main goal is to keep it running so I can pass it down to my girls and I'll get a 4X4. I'm in the market for black rims. I know it's not a popular color, but I think it looks good blacked out. I'll get some more pics soon with a complete listed of mods....

    Thanks guys!

    John, I told Larry just to sell them if he could. If I were to lift the rear, then I would have to do the front and then get bigger tires and so on... :)
    One of these days, I need to swing by so we can finish the other head light.

    Thanks DJ,

    After it was cleaned, I wet sanded with 300 grit paper, then sprayed two coats of adhesion promoter, three coats of color match paint from English Paints and 3 coats of clear. Pretty quick and easy mod. I'm gonna put some black rims on in a few days, can't wait.
