$120?!?! I filled up this morning for just under $50 (about 17 gallons) I know we have cheap gas here in the Gulf Coast but dear lord, over $6.50 a gallon is unreasonable. I just wouldn't drive

So I grabbed "I'm done talking" and started transforming the front bumper and ended up having to stop mid way through the first cut.

My garage is to small, its a tandem. 1 car wide but 2 cars deep. "I'm done Talking" was shooting and insane amount of sparks into places I did not want. don't need damage or flames.

So I packed up, drove to work, parked out back on the concrete pad and recommenced cutting.

Still needs some final grinding and repaint - once done I will post the final results.

Haven't decided whether to keep the 2 lights or swap over to 4. 4 means more mild fab work to which I am not opposed.
Pic 2 is waaaay better! Good choice in my humble opinion

I finaly repainted my roof rack! Before and after pics... To everyone out there hating the grey look of your sun dried rack, go get you two cans of good satin black spray paint , a small tube of silicone, 4 old buckets, a friend to help you move it, and a t40 star socket adapter. You'll need 2+ hours counting dry time. It's easier than you think so stop procrastinating and just go for it. I'm going to wait two days before I reattach the other pieces. then I have a Baja roof drop in basket to add into it. And remember with spray paint start and stop spraying before and after the pieces and keep a steady speed and distance and you'll have a nice clean job. Sorry run on sentences ... 😕

I'm guessing to rest the roof rack on while you paint it.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has caused all the damage to my FJ.
