    Here's the only few pics I got from the show.







    I know a couple of other people got a few shots of it but my girl and I were more focused on other rides there since we see mine all the time.

    Well I got a little more work done last night. I pretty much finished up 1 drip rail and I personally like the way they turned out compared to my first attempt. I took a little more time on this one:


    Old filler cut out and weld thru primer sprayed:



    What the old ones looked like:


    New filler sprayed with weld thru:



    test fit:




    welded in:

    filler and self etching primer:




    And I also did the roof rack holes and third brake light again:








    Sorry to picture whore but this took a lot of time even though it doesn't look like much, lol.

    Drip rail looks really good now. Much more "finished" than before.

    Thanks guys

    Well I started doing a little work today. Here's a little shot of how the weather has been the past few days and this is what it was doing here all day:


    So I backed into the garage and gave the filler and sanding a rest for the day. Here's what I have began and am still in the process of doing today.

    Cut for the caddy bucket


    Test fit:


    Weld Thru primer on the backsides of the filler and the bucket:


    Test fit of bucket with filler tacked in


    Bucket and filler fully tacked in (except for the piece closest the tailgate)

    Thanks man, good luck. Hopefully it won't be as big of a pain in the ass to cut the crap out from behind the pocket as mine was. Wish I had a plasma and this would have taken no time.

    Here'e the light ready for filler and primer and where I finished for the night

    Well really the only problem I had was at the very bottom trying to cut out enough room to clear the lights. You may not run into that with yours being a first gen and I realized on the second light that if I hadn't welded on the lower sides and roll pan then I would have had no problems. Just make sure you have as many tools as you can, lol. The main one I used besides the angle grinder was a pair of tin snips. They worked wonders.
