Default Reedypeteys Storm Trooper Build

For those of you who may or may not have seen my last build heres the link:http://www.f150forum.com/f78/reedype...-style-218787/

I went out and purchased a 2011 F150 Ecoboost
Here she is the first day i got her.


That same week I bought a 6 inch Rough Country Suspension Lift along with a set of 20 inch Fuel Mavericks wrapped in 35 Al Turro MTs



Here's another glamour shot i took of her that evening.


I decided to add a custom grille to it. I bought a cheap wire mesh grille with rivets installed off ebay for about $200 bucks and decided to paint it myself.

Here it is without the shell painted.


Its a bad picture but here it is after i mounted the old Ford Oval onto the grille and put a white and black overlay on top of the emblem.



Another from the rear.



Here is the final outcome of the grille after i painted it.



I picked up a pair of black housing heads to replace the olds with clear turn signal housings.



Today i have actually started to retrofit my headlights with H1 Morimoto Mini Projectors to add a little flare to her. This project is pretty overwhelming as it is but I do have a few pics from the build along with a Raptor headlight i am corresponding with.

Here is my blueprint of what i am going by:

Here is what i have done so far:

Looks great, tasteful mods!

Edit: I just read your old build; why did you cheat on the family company with the rough country lift!?

Thats a good question and im sure many more will ask this. It's actually my brother's Mother and Father in law. Therefore, for me to ask for something such as a lift is kinda like asking a friend to buy you one. My old build's lift was actually a graduation present. This lift I had the opportunity to get one from them but i kind a felt bad since it hasn't been a year since i got the last one.

Understandable. Nonetheless that's a badass looking truck; can't wait to see the retrofits mounted up.

Ran into a few problems in the middle of my retrofit. Please PM if you have any knowledge of retrofitting headlights.
