    I'm so glad you took my advice. :p

    That thing's looking badass, Geno! Definitely a lemonade from lemons scenario.

    Silly question, but are you color matching the bumper?

    If so, have you considered a colored matched grill surround… after all, it is the only non-matched part..

    The bumper will be Raptor lined, I still have to make panels that go behind the bars. Those will be color matched.

    Getting the panels done. Made templates from cardboard, placed and cut out 1/4” plexiglass. Heated the panels with a heat gun and clamped them to the tubes. Waited till they cooled, drilled mounting holes, and traced again to trim nicely. Sanded and sprayed with Bulldog adhesion promoter. Tomorrow I’ll mount them up and see if the foglight holes need to be titsed up. Primer, blue base then 8T5 to come.

    Almost finished! This is just a base coat, I don’t have enough Blue Ribbon at the moment, but the angle makes it look great. I gotta install a new harness for the light bar. The winch still needs to be mounted, respoolled and the synthetic line cleaned out. I’m debating on just getting a new one since it was drug through the dune sand.

    Color matched, winch, torqued to spec, new light bar harness. Now to make two new brackets for the missing SS3s behind the grille. I “borrowed” them for the bumper.
