    Well, I made some progress today. I added some carpet to the seat backs of the rear seat. They provide much better traction for my dog and any miscellaneous items I shove back there. At Lowe's, I got two cheap Blue Hawk floor mats with a rubber backing and about 15ft of Velcro. I ended up adding gorilla glue to the Velcro side attached to the mat simply because I didn't trust the original adhesive. It's not perfect but it serves it's purpose!

    Finally installed my MagLite mount today. I swapped out the provided wood screws for some Stainless Steel machine screws. Took about 20 minutes to line up everything and drill. The flashlight bezel barely clears when the door is shut... But it fits!

    Do you have seat covers on yours? What seat covers are they and how did it cost you for all of them?

    Yes, they are Katskinz seat covers and I had them installed by the dealer for a little less than $1000. They are SRS air-bag equipped so I didn't want to run the risk of compromising the SRS system

    Made some great progress this weekend. Learned some great lessons, most importantly being that deep socket metric wrenches are needed more often than you'd think. The right tool makes a job 10x easier.
    IMG_2263.jpg

    Started with my CB install. I already had a Midland 75-822 Handheld, and had a 5' Wilson 1000 in the past and it was just too obnoxious. So I decided to run a 3 ft firestik on a Rago Fabrication ditch light mount. Ran the Coax through firewall on passenger side and underneath kick panel, step rail,and finally under driver's seat. The best I can get my SWR is 1.9 on both channel 1 and 40. I will try to work on that lol.

    IMG_2253.jpg

    Then I plasti-dipped my grille, yay. I might redo in the future because it came out a little too textured
    IMG_2264.jpg

    Finally, worked really hard on my HID install. I chose the TRS Morimoto 35w 5500k kit. I bought off Amazon so I didn't get the 9006 to H11 harness adapter(had to run to NAPA to get one). They look awesome but a lot of work making the brackets which I made of 16g steel sheet metal.

    Removed the plastidip on the grille emblem. Don't think I'm ready for a total chrome delete yet.

    Been a while. Dropped the cb, installed a Kenwood TM-710ga with a Larsen 2/70b antenna. It’s late so I only have a picture from the inside. Will add more photos tomorrow.
