I especially like that bumper man but the whole truck is great man.

    Thanks a lot Cody!!! What kind of canopy r u going with man? its up to the person if they like the canopys or not. I enjoy mine all the time. I can keep things locked up when im at work. I always when i bought my canopy to put the rack an tire on top and then throw on as many things that it can hold.

    No problem man, and honestly I'm not sure. I'm too worried on what kind of brand it is its in good shape though. There just really convenient in the winter for storage and what not. I play on building a rack this weekend for the top of it if I end up picking it up tomorrow. I"ll post some pics if so.

    WOOT WOOT, so my projector kit came Friday and was so excited!!!!!! Now I have the right stuff.

    [​IMG]

    And the work begins:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since I had to take the grille an bumper off to put lights on I decided to undercoat to front. Here is what half of it looks like when I had already started on it.

    [​IMG]

    Heres the entire front completed. Looks so much better now and cleaner too:

    [​IMG]

    Everything went good putting the lights together until I went to put the second light together and stripped out the nut that holds the projector in the ballast. So we had to rethread the bolt end on the projector but messed up the nut to much to rethread. Called anybody and everybody today that was open and thought they might have a nut for it. Lest just say no body had one. So now I have to wait until Monday when City Machine Shop is open and see it they have one. Hook the lights up anyway to see what it looked like and what a bright ass light ive got. Especially like how it is a clean and straight cut off line with the lights.

    Well atleast you have all the right stuff! That sucks the nut stripped, is it the locking nut?

    How did you place the thin metal plate, the one that goes on before the lock nut? It's the one that has 3 prongs that stick out.
    I tried putting that plate with the "dome" part down inside the housing but the projector was to wobbly. So I tried flipping the plate to where the dome part was sticking outward away from the housing. After doing that the locknut secured the projector perfectly. I'm interested to see how you did it because all other videos and instructions I could find said to place it facing down.

    I put the plate with the 3 prong on before I put the nut on. I had no problem with the plate in the locking position. The drivers side turned out great have everything ready with the lense and the puddy all put back together. But then went to start on the passenger side and the nut stripped out. Can u Believe that?
    Let me ask u something did u have trouble putting the actual bulb inside the progector? because i go to put the bulb in and it will not go all the way to the locking position if u know what i mean. so i put the bulb back in the protective case until i figure it out. the bubl will go about all the way in the projector but i would say maybe less than an inch and it would be in the locking position IDK!!!! So hopefully by the middle of the week i am going to get a ton of pics on how the projectors look. I hook everything up though to make sure the projectors look and man they looked AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I somewhat half-assed a rack this weekend with what metal I had laying around. I'm pretty tight on money right now so I can't really go out and buy the square tubing I wanted. And I haven't painted the canopy yet. But here it is what do you think?
