That should look good.

Thanks!

And I hope so, I think once it's not sitting up there all alone like a big ole pimple it'll look better.

Anyways, I got a little more ambitious and decided to wax, so I went back over with the ultimate compound on mothers powerball and wipes it off with a microfiber rag. After that, I started waxing with mothers California gold carnauba wax. I have experience with waxing and polishing from a past job at the boot store, so I laid the wax on just thick enough so I could see it. By the time I got to the bottom of the panel I could see it start to haze at the top, so I started buffing on the top, slowly making my way down making sure the wax had hazed before I hit it. After that I grabbed another new rag, #3 and buffed the entire truck again. Crappy iphone pics, but it really shines. When the sun starts to go down again and the sun stars to get a good orange tint to it, I'll go find a good place to take some more pictures!

Well I get started on painting my emblems and the chrome pieces on my bumpers, along with the bed rails and I only got my tailgate emblems and tailgate bed rail done because I had to go to sturgis!

I didn't take too many pictures, because I was jamming out to pandora. Sturgis was a blast though! My friend was looking for a shots girl to take a picture with and right before tr end of the night she finally got it.

When I started taping off my bedrails I noticed my paint was peeling off! I fixed it short term, but does anybody have a good option for Masking that won't take my paint off??

I'm not sure, in the midst of the smoke and the commotion of the rally it looked like a woman but looking at the picture again she seems pretty rugged... And I know I need brackets, but it's only a. 40" so I'm going to get a 50" and either sell or mount my 40 so it faces towards the rear to blind tailgaters

Okay, so I just cut off my rear cats and tried to weld a piece of pipe in place until I get enough free time to take it to a real exhaust shop and get hi flows put in. Any tips on how to get rid of the exhaust leak on top? It sounds great, but it has a noticeable leak, that is very noticeable at idle.
