well i'd take your bumper, but shipping would be hell, and it'd be way too far to drive haha. how is the paint on the tool box holding up? any chipping or anything like that?

There is a little chipping on the top and there pretty small, but they will probably get bigger if I don't fix them.

I took out the old LED's and going to use some new ones. I'm going to go with the PCB 24 or 36 LED Base (click)to be brighter and more even of light output, the previous bulbs where like a spot light almost.

exactly! Each side has one positive wire one will be green and one red, they both share a black ground wire. Just inclip the whole copper crap and the old caps. Then just match up the pos and neg solder together. The board should be big enough to where I can hot glue the corners together and get it to sit right, Shouldn't be too hard to do.

Thank you sir!

Well here is an update:

Last monday I the body shop called and wanted me to go look at the fenders because the driverside wasn't getting lined up and fitting right, so I went to take a look. He had the pasengers side on and looked good no problems or fitment issues. Then went and saw the driverside and the top corner where the fender meets the edge of the hood and the wiper panel didn't fit right at all. And from what it looked like it was bowed inward just a little. But the main problem was that there was a massive gap between the fenders and the door jam enough where you could put your finger in between, so I figured I would just get the Glassworks 6" flare 3" Rise Fenders. I ordered them last Mon and I hope they have been shipped from Huntington Beach (only an 8 hour drive from SJ) So I hope to get them in tomorrow and get them to the truck to get painted. Its such a drag not having my truck I miss it so much, but with the new hood and fenders man its going to be sick! I hope to have it done by this friday I hope.

So it's 1130 pacific time and no fenders today. I called Glassworks on Monday and asked them when they got shipped and they said last friday! I emailed Glassworks and asked them what shipping company they use and if there is a tracking number for my order, still waiting for a response. So it takes the shipping company a week to ship a big box but light as hell, and it only takes 8 hours to drive from Huntington Beach to San Jose? It took 5 days for ups to deliver my fenders from roach and they came from Austin, TX. WTF is going on here I would expect them to be here today at least!




Edit: No answer from email, called and left a message. If I don't get my fenders by friday I'm turning green and raising hell!

I called them last monday and they said they shipped them last Friday. Called them 3 times and no answer left messages. Oh and this is Glassworks Unlimited Direct thought they would give me better customer service, hell i know it might get busy but it takes only min to call someone back and at least try to figure out what is going on with an order. Very dissapointed.

Edit: Got an email back after sending them a long email. I didn't know but they attended Baja 1000 race in Mexico. So at least I know they won't ignoring me, I feel like a 'tard but I just would like to get my truck done.

Well at least there are some good things, I have been on the search for some Black FX4 SunVisors since I re-did my interior and haven't had any luck till I randomly searched ebay and saw them so I snatched up on them!
