2018 - A new year and possible future projects
2017, what a year
First was a bad grinding noise coming from my brake caliper bolts, I might get new brake rotors and calipers soon.
Some smaller projects I did over the course of months
One was tint back in March, and yes, I'm going to admit this: I AM NOT PERFECT.
I did a bad job on the back window, but that'll be taken care of soon. I should've had help when I was doing this, I did not want to pay a full $175.00 for tint, overall, some were not bad, but could be redone due to reasons, but I'm going to stick on with this and not going to put up the tint up on the windshield (even though it is legal in Georgia to have 6 inches of tint up on the top part of your windshield)
Another was Mossy Oak camo seat covers that I bought from Autozone, and they actually look good on my truck. I might get some Mossy Oak floor mats to complete the look of it.
Summer months really mean restoration projects for me to do.
One summer day, I decided to respray the black bumper trim, and boy, oh boy, what a difference it made, I was spied on by my noisy neighbor, but I could care less about it, but it's starting to get a little out of hand.
Then at the same price, my RAM 1500 decal came off, I quickly went to eBay and found a new one with the same color. The old one you may ask?
Well, I took a utility knife and started peeling away on the old adhesive and used a plastic scraper to get the old adhesive off. Soon I might get myself some new V8 MAGNUM badges and SLT badges (if you do a license plate search on my truck, it actually shows up as a Laramie SLT)
Months later, I noticed my radiator grille was starting to come off because the zipties are randomly snapping, I said enough was enough and bought a new radiator grille. Best part is that it's black, which when installed, it made the truck look nice! I thought of going badgeless for the front, but I decided not to.
Then finally, on Christmas eve, it was time to LIGHT IT UP!!!
With help from my dad, despite two broken drill bits and a quarter inch stuck inside the roof of the cab (which doesn't bother me, the light bar is installed and it is mean looking and intimidating.)
One wire installation later, and she is lit up like a Christmas tree, and the light is incredibly bright! Wired up a switch and hopefully, install that relay I still have, but that'll come one day, stupid me should've bought a light bar wiring kit that has everything you need.
A project I'm thinking about starting up soon is toolbox lights, which allows the lights to turn on when the toolbox is open and turn off when closed, just like a refrigerator light turning on when open and shut off when closed. Possibly some aftermarket headlights because I'm getting moisture inside.
