    Busy day today!

    First, used the Meguiars two-step headlight restoration kit($20 at AutoZone) on my headlights. They were worse than I thought!
    Here's a halfway shot.

    And here's a after shot.

    Then, I painted my hood scoop that was faded.
    Before:

    After:

    I also removed the eye sores. Still need to clay bar/wax the area but looking better already.

    Well if I tear into it to look I'm replacing those anyhow, it would be nice if that's as far as I have to go.

    Installed some flush mount s1's in the bumper. Waiting for my squadrons to arrive to install between the s1 and ss3...

    Still need to readjust bumper mounting angle which explains the side gaps

    More lights are better, right? Put two lightforce ROK 40's on the side of my roofnest for rear lighting. I've got all sides covered now.

    That’s where mine was tapped into when I had a shell. Worked great.

    LOOOL at the beer bottle. At the dealership we use an old quart bottle to drain that. Beer bottle is far more "classy".

    I'm more impressed with how you got the truck in the garage! Is the rack kissing the garage door at all? :D

    Bending large sticks of tubing is very difficult. It really tested me with getting measurements and angles right, and had to go back and tweak it after the initial bending was done. The angles could be a little tighter to the body but for my first time doing something this large (and like 3rd time ever bending) I’m happy with it.

    I made the tube extra long because the last thing I wanted was to come up short. I worked from the middle outward, going off of the fabricator series videos on YouTube. Overall I’m happy I got it with this tube and didn’t have to scrap it and start over, even if it’s not perfect.
