    Default My 2007 after 2 months

    First of all , I know it looks like some of the stock rides , but I bought my truck on 9/21/2010 as an LS plain-jane Z71. After the trip home from North Alabama , I removed the front valance , undercoated the rear fender wells and removed the Bowties and painted them Black.Did the airbox mod , and pulled the fuse for "daytime running lights". I then ordered my 20% tint from Ebay and installed it , went and bought a Flowmaster Super 44 and took it to the local exhaust shop. Sold the 17" stock steel wheels and while the Stock 18 Oem's were on order , I installed the 2.5" leveling kit (while it was on jack-stands for a week , waiting on the wheels from Oregon) and installed new brakes. My wheels finally arrived and I had my local garage waiting with Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ 305/60/18's. I really wanted the side molding to complete the look , but $125 on Ebay? , I was on duty last week (police officer) and I looked over and noticed all of our junked crown vics - with side molding! After alot of sanding and cutting to size , painting and clearcoating , I think I have it the way I want.

    I actully got them for $395 -used from an Ebayer in Oregon . I couldn't believe it when I saw it , that was the Buy It Now price + $100 UPS ground shipping.He even held them for me until I got paid the following week! But I'm seeing them on Craigslist for $500-$600 with tires on them.

    The molding is so suttle but it makes a big difference. How long did it take you to do it?

    Didn't take long ,peeled off old 3M tape and replaced, sanded them down pretty good , sprayed them 3-4 coats and clearcoated 3-4 coats, 3M tape ,Duplicolor paint , and spray paint Clearcoat all bought at local Autozone. Could be done in a day , I did it in about two , because I bought Pewter Duplicolor and it didn't come close , so I went back and bought Silver Met.
