    I did mine with 4 coats of PlastiDip and it's held up great for the last couple years with zero issues. Granted I don't drag it across a boulder Lol. I always inspect it after a camping trip and to my surprise it looks pristine. Use a good plastic detailer and it'll always look new.

    Still in planning phase ...
    Finally color matched OEM grill. First photo original chrome trim, second temp grill until I had both time and decent weather, last ... final look.

    Gave it a little long... long overdue attention.

    Pressure washed the most recent adventure off the top engine and the undersides.

    Then gave it a proper two bucket wash, clay mitt, and a good waxing, no correction this time though it could definitely use one.

    Changed out the charcoal canister to hopefully permanently solve my emissions CEL that comes and goes. Wasn't as expensive as K was afraid it would be. Also pretty sure it would not have been possible to change without removing the bed bolts if it wasn't for my 1/2 bed lift.

    Lastly did my outer tie rod ends, they really weren't too bad but now everything in the front end should be peachy.

    They were really the last pieces.

    I need to replace the bushings on my steering rack and tie rods. Not looking forward to it.

    Personally if you don't have a state inspection I would remove the charcoal canister as it will just plug up again.

    Nice! What color/brand did you use? The color match is pretty dead on.

    Replacing the rack bushings is a pain in the arse job, supposedly you can replace them in the truck but don't bother fighting it, just take the rack out, do your inner tie rods and boots while you're at it like I did.

    I considered it but I'd still get a CEL due to the ECU being unable to complete the test and CEL's drive me insane.

    Original Dip (black) and a few coats of Dip clear coat. It may look that way from afar but not up close lol. It's close enough though :D

    While doing a little rewiring I've been unintentionally scratching the hell out of my recently painted radio panels. I'm over it. I ordered a all black 2.5 one.

    Screenshot_20210507-021639_Google.jpg

    I've always felt the 2.5 gen radio panel bezel looked alot cleaner than the 2.0s anyway :D

    On another note, anyone know the part number for non clock hazard switch panel?
