Spring Break Plans,,

1st plan is to custom fab a skidplate, mostly for looks out of diamond plate and all stainless steel hardware,, The plate is only 1/8" thick so I might use 1/4" Steel to back it up, all bolted together.

ms paint:




its going to replace the current broken plastic thing using all existing holes,,


2nd plan to paint my bumpers with the same stuff I coated the bottom of my truck with, Hammered Rustolem,,

3rd once it arrives: Passenger side A-pillar with grab handle and bracket from pastfinder,,

4th tiling the bathroom aswell,, gonna be a busy week,,

and maybe 5th.. how long can I ride on these ball joints before I have to get new ones?


whats everyone else plans?

naa we planned out where each tile is going to go with a green pencil,,
that way we get the piece cut before we need it, makes it hella fast,, but food is a good reason to stop..

Good way to spend spring break.

I plan on doing a couple things on my spring break/easter break. I am going to Herculine the interior of my truck. And TILE the backsplash in my kitchen.

Since i will be on vacation from work during my colleges spring break... i was going to go back out to cali with my GF to meet her family (she's originally from Huntington Beach) but since she's been out there for the past 3 weeks (her grandfather died, than a few things came up that kept her out there longer than she expected) she's in no rush to go back... so looks like i'll just be spending the whole week with her here relaxing, and hoping it doesn't snow. lol One can never tell with this lovely ohio weather.

The rivnuts ready to go!

just waiting on a new bracket from ford!

going to reuse my existing apiller trim because the one made for the handle does not line up correctly on the headliner,, so the extra a-piller trim is going on ebay soon as is the rivet gun,, only needed it for this,,
