Added hood cowls this morning. First time ever playing with an angle grinder…. it’s addicting haha

I’m not 100% satisfied with the outcome, but for about $35 I am thrilled (that includes the price on the harbor freight grinder haha). If I ever get around to painting the truck my dream neon green, the screws will blend in much better and give it more of a finished look. For now, it will stay the way it is.

20170803_094124.jpgImage Enlarger Double the holiness

How many more louvers can he put on… Hahahagrin

Head an exhaust leak… Turns out my exhaust manifold gaskets were REALLLLYYY bad lol. Learned a ton about TPS, MAF, dashpots, and o2 sensors in the process! Also swapped out my IACV finally… after 1 year of trying to find the part at a decent price.


Write up on the exhaust manifold gasket here!…..nner-22re/
