Default Shaved Stuff & Painted Stuff

The tailgate needed to be painted and since it did, I decided to shave it too. I also repainted the hood and the grill surround. Since I am a vol. firefighter, I bought a red/clear LED dash light that I mounted just below the rear view mirror.

Anyway, on with the pictures:


Before:


Hood was semi gloss and didn't come out the way I wanted it.

During:


After:













And a little flexing:




That's it for the pictures. Let me know what you think.

The only problem I have had is when I flex a lot and the bed itself flexes, the cap does too and the cap misaligns itself. That was when i had one wheel off the ground. I try not to do that often though.

Basically what you do is take everything out and do a 180* with it the rod on the left goes to the right and the right one to the left side and it all works out.
