But it IS the SLODIME, so might as well be!

That certainly looks darker than 20% to me!








Tinting it was NOT fun, but it's the first tint job I've attempted over the years that the damn thing ended up with tint on the windows at the end of it all... Wink Usually I get one or two windows attempted and tear 'em off and throw it away and take it somewhere. I got one of the eBay pre-cut tint kits for $14.95 shipped and gave it a shot. I'd say it definately looks 15 bucks better! At least! Very Happy

Got my plates the other day and slapped 'em on. Also over the weekend I fixed the Kenwood CD/MP3/iPod player so it sits flush in the dash, replaced a couple blown bulbs inside, removed the annoying "upshift" bulb from the cluster, replaced the front speakers with some 6.5" Pioneer 3-ways I had kickin around, put Pioneer 4 way 6x9's in boxes in the back that were also in the "I'll use 'em eventually" stash, replaced the horn with one for a big truck from the stockroom at work (sssshhhh!!!!), and installed a mini tach on the column. All standard vehicles should have a tach!

She's a rockin' little beater now, fo' sho'!!!!!

I LOVE this little truck! Very Happy

Almost done. Got a little more paintwork to do and maybe a different set of rims and tires. But DEFINATELY tires. Also need to fix the frame and install the new leaf spring hangers, 3" lowering blocks, 3" front springs, and shocks and sway bar end links... So... Uhm... Maybe not-so-almost-done... Sad

I I love you those wheels. But I've got a nasty highway vibration and am not sure if the wheels are out of round. I balanced them last week, and it helped a little. But not enough...
