Icon11 Last days of Freedom

So University is starting back up again so I decided to do a final detail of my truck before I get swamped with school work. Since the last time I posted pics, I've repainted my front bumper and valence due to huge rocks chips, painted the back plastic bumper to black as well as the door handles to black. Here's some pics.

4. This you can really see the purple pearl in the flames. Its hard to spot as you only see flickers of it here and there.

5.

6. First time cleaning my engine too. Was pretty dirty.

Haha! Funny story. I was driving on the highway and this ford work truck passes me and I can see the guy looking at my hood. About 5 mins later, they pass me again and the guy sticks his head out the window and yells "Dude, you're truck is on fire!" Thanks tips lol.

The lens for the interior shots was just the basic nikon 18-55mm vr lens at 18mm. You just need to get into a weird angle to take the picture.

I added you.:

This is the closet picture I have of it. I had it coming straight out the back but I find this looks better. I basically cut the stock pipe after it comes down over the diff and ran it out from there.


For the engine I used this stuff called GUNK Engine Shine CEB1. It was all they had at Canadian Tire. It was really easy to use. I just covered the alternator and fuse box, sprayed it on the cool engine and used a old paintbrush to get some of the heavy dirt off. Rinsed lightly with the hose and then sprayed a light coat over everything to let it shine. Removed the excess with a paper towel when it sat for a bit. Easy stuff and your engine will smell like oranges for a bit.

Here is why I painted my front bumper. Nasty stuff.

Man, I just painted my bumper with spray paint, I'm so jealous of how much better yours looks.

Truck looks great by the way.
