"CARBON" build is taking shape.
 
I have been moding my 09 Ram 1500 QC 2wd almost since the day i bought it. I have never really had a "theme" build or what ever, just moded to my hearts content. But I have been inspired by others here to come up with a theme. It took me a bit to find something different. I am going with CARBON. of course i am blacking out most of the truck, but wanted another demension to the blackness. in comes CARBON FIBER. I jsut recently started adding a small amount of the new name sake, CARBON. thats why i am just now starting my build thread. the ideas are constantly flowing and the truck always transforming. so here are the pics and progression up to now. lots of pics.....

wow, wow, wow, very nice work, very nice truck, black is sexy. Seriously nice work, great mod's, Question, your fiberglass ram air scoop in lower valence. with ducting to the stock air box, is this a bought kit or did you create it yourself.

Thanks for info, great pics, nice work, great post, really nice work :smileup:

Ramfd 05-17-2012 09:40 PM

The air scoop is a custom one off, self made piece. I mocked it up with card board then layed the fiber glass, used about three layers, then sprayed it with plasti-dip. I plan on buying a lower billet grill to match the stock one to cover the opening soon.
and thank you very much, still have al ong way to go to get to the look i want.

my new Plexiglass lighted RAM logo, the switch powers the logo as well as three relays under the hood that send power to red accent lights around the truck ans future under truck lighting.
