What Have You Done To Your Other Vehicle Lately?

Trevor! I like the dash trim, but why did you wassh the plastidip off? I thought it looked pretty cool!

Mike,, where are the PIAA fogs mounted? I don't see them...

Since my original post I added LED's in the map,doors, tailights and cargo lights. I also put four cold cathodes under the dash for the footwells.

One of my low beam headlights went out so I put silverstar lows and highs in the headlights. The 9145 silverstar bulbs were 45 bucks so I bought a 3000K yellow set of HIDs and put them in the factory fogs. I also bought a smittbilt light bar, stripped the black powder coating and color matched it and added four 6" hella optilux 100Watt Hallogen lights.

I just ordered 6 new COPs for the Escape...I'm done with replacing one at a time. As soon as I'd replace one, another one would go bad.

Easy

Most lights come with the kit that includes the relay. You just need to get a keyed on trigger wire from inside the cab so you can mount a switch and just use that to trigger the relays.

The eighteen-year-old required the use of the 95 Merc Villiager, so I spent a snowy day doing brakes and replacing a broken rim. Now the family hauler/truckster is back in action.

Snowy driving proved too frustrating though... Teen and van are back in their berths for the next few days, I think...

A rough idea of where I'll be trimming in order to fit 33" or possibly 35" tires without lifting icon_horns2.gif, this will also take care of most of the rust. It will also get new springs ,likely moog, to fix the rear sag. This will have to wait till the spring though. The wife gave the ok on it, she actually likes the idea (it's really her truck ).

You can do all that with about 4 cans of black plastidip.

I know. I wanted to try it when I had the Durango, never got around to it. I want to try it on the rims first.

The headlights, I found some DEPO ones on eBay for about $120. (Thats what I put in the picture.) Had the same kind in the Durango. Looked awesome.

Look on the whatever that is forums and see if they have a BHLM or black head light mod. You put the headlights in the oven to heat the glue up then seperate them, paint them, heat them up again and put them back together.

Yeah, I know about that. Couple issues:

1) My mother would not approve of me baking my headlights in her oven.

2) If I screw up (like somebody on the forum did) and end up with a melted headlight, now I'm SOL, ruined a perfectly good headlight, and have to buy a new one.

Devin you could take a heat gun and heat up around the edge of the light to heat the glue up. I ended up doing that for the F150 tail lights for the leds

Finally broke my wifes' mazdas' mod cherry! 5k hid's for the hibeams due to the upcoming arizona roadtrip in march, unfortunately the taurus will have to stay home. :( Having the back seat folded down in the mazda proves far better for sleep vs. the backseat of taurus.. PLus 100k less miles makes me feel a little better too. O well on to the good stuff:

If you want to heat something small up with a heat gun, it is much easier if you put it in a 5 gal. bucket to contain the heat. You still need to work the area you are heating, but it's quicker.

Dropping the Jeep off tonight to get ...

-New waterpump, rad hoses, thermostat, LF wheel bearing and axle u joints.

When that all comes off, get some plastidip

Mike

:D

Considered it but it'd peel as soon as I scrape a tree or rock offroad. I think it looks pretty good with the white wheels. A buddy of mine wants to use plastidip to proect his new Jeep offroad.
