parking truck to do mods

i am going to park my 03 for a month (or more) and am going to do some mods to it. i need to build a custom box, put in a shelf-it, put all my neon and leds in, hook up my tv antenna's, put in my cobra cb and antenna, paint interior parts, mount tweeters.


just wanted some more ideas on what to do while it is in one spot ( its starting to get white up here finally and the roads are crap). i am parking it at work and have access to everything from hand tools to metal fabrication equipment so the posibilities are endless.(cant beat a huge work area and heat).

so if anyone has some ideas that would be great. thanks... pictures will be posted as i go.. (got high speed internet here too)

If youve got all the metal fabrication stuff there why not make some heavy duty bumpers or rocksliders? Thats what I would do.

lift and new tires are coming this spring (dont have the incoming cash that i do in the summer). i might pull my gauges and change the colors.. other then that i am stumped. i want to put a bull guard on with a set of daylighters and two more in the grill. and a hard tonneu cover on back. if i get the tonneu cover i am going to have a set of subs in the bed for s**ts and giggles. (blow away all them rice burners with the vibrating trunks)

keep the ideas coming


i have acess to the equipment but not the steel.. its alittle pricey but what do the bumpers look like anyway

change your magnaflow to a dual catback, and put some more stuff into the engine such as cold air intake, maybe a centrifugal superchager. Induction hood, rollpan, and valence.

Definately get a PA speaker if you're getting a CB, mine was a couple bucks on ebay and it gets pretty loud. I think 8 watts is the one to go for, but i forget..

not really i just put that up there... i really didnt want to drive it during the winter. save a few miles and try to keep some of the road **** off of it. i still have 3 years worth of payments so everyday helps alittle. plus with all of the interior pulled apart it would look like crap.


UPDATE
i have the shelf-it in also. but the stupid thing is starting to bubble the carpet i ant to happy right know.
