Ya it really is overpriced that's for sure.

I'd not hear of this stuff before joining the site, so now I look at loads of things that I'd like to plasti-dip........like last nights dinner.......though judging by the taste I think I may already have been??

Yes poo is bad, especially if I had of rolled the dog in it afterwards and sent her home with my brother. LOL.....

Awe who am I kidding, the dog is adorable. And I'd move heaven and earth for my nieces, so a dog print is no big deal in the grand scheme of things.

This past weekend, I changed out the plugs with new Champion OEM's @ $1.99 a piece. Also dumped some Seafoam in the crankcase and let it set overnight. Then, went and picked up some Rhino Ramps from a Craig's List post for $30. He was right about 50 miles from the house so the round trip worked out well for the Seafoam cleanse. Had some In-N-Out for lunch at the house, just to let the beast cool down and bit, then changed out the life blood with some Royal Purple. I'm thinking the Beast likes it 'cause his get-up-and-go seems to be a little perkier.

Not in too bad of shape. Looks like they have 116K on them.

Good stuff, Maynard!

Looks good my dude, but why not make both bumpers black like I did?

Thanks, Bro! Just mixing things up a little, wanted to see how well the white blended in. Gonna have to redo them both anyhow. I like the all white look, just need to find a white grill now. The black on black looks great on your truck. Think I'll do both black next time, thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks EW! Those are Spyder head lights with LED. HERE's the link to them. They look sharp, but with 35w 5000K HID's in them, the output is less than average. However, because I put 35w 6000k HIDs in my fogs, I really don't need them to be all great. My fogs really light up the world without blinding oncoming traffic. Maybe I'll drop some 55w 5000K HID's in the projectors and see how they do. I'm thinking I just need to replace the projector with quality ones. But, hey, they do look great and get the job done.
