Thanks. Also did my side view mirrors. Real easy. Take the trim pieces off. Rub the surface with some scotchbright pads. Degrease. Spray with OEM trim rattle can.

That's what I was thinking as well. I sanded the bumpers and tire carrier down this past weekend and shot them with a semi flat rustproofing spray. Now the bits you just painted look tired on mine. I'll touch those up this weekend to get it all done.
Thanks for the info!

Here's my partial product from this past weekend

PM with your body shop info if you don't mind. I keep telling my MSU buds to keep an eye out for a 110 there. Lots of people here in Chi headed to the 11/2 MSU v UofM game. I wish I could make that trip!

That is one shiny truck, Spartan.

I finished bolting in my right side wing, and bolted all the stuff onto the wings. I finished the last bit of wiring, and tucked all the wiring back out of the way. I put on the wheels and the bonnet.

I tried to drive the truck to the garage to have them bleed the brakes and clutch, but realized the clutch was too bad to drive. So, I had it towed there. I asked them to put the doors on too as I'm running out of time. The guy put the passenger door on, said he couldn't adjust it to stay closed and took if off again. Grr.

Since I had friends lined up to get the roll cage on, I went and did that tonight. I feel kind of silly spending all that time getting the roll cage on when I don't have doors.

. Looks great Keith. Just noticed your license plate - pretty cool. We still need to meet up and do some equipment swaps!

Today was slow at work, so I had some spare time to clean up the wiring for my instrument pack and install a new speedometer and fuel gauge. I forgot to take before pictures, but it was a mess! Someone really hacked up that harness, I think I removed 6 or so scotch-locks. I ended up ditching the bullet connector multi-plug and ended up using a multi-plug from a DII engine bay harness. Its not perfect, but not too bad considering I was just using wires and connectors I found around the shop.

Not directly Rover but will help on some projects I have lined up for mine.

Miller Syncrowave 250 - trailered from my friend's house and installed. Laid some test bead down with it tonight. The pulse settings are crazy! Arc feels nice and water torch is nice and maneuverable.

Well, I have half of that so far. TIG is pretty hard to master. I can get beads down but they aren't as nice as I want. All about the torch time.

I'm not totally sure - but yeah, I am sure it will be more than a Dynasty.

But I won't be using it a ton - a few hours a week on average would be my guess. I got it for a good price and should be a good welder for a wide array of items. And with the other things being used at my house, it should be pretty minor.
