The best way I can describe it is, when you pull the handle to open the door, notice that there's a gap between the handle and the door skin at the back of the handle. Stick your fingers in there and pull straight out.
I'll give that a shot, what about the square/rectangular part on the door? I need to paint that too.....

I can't help you there. This is just a build thread.

I dropped off a bunch of parts at the paint shop yesterday & today. We'll see how everything turns out.

I also have a front bumper on its way. I should have a visually transformed truck by mid-July.

I rolled over 10,000 miles on the odometer on the way back from visiting a rental property last night. I looked around at the other cars on the highway as it happened, to see if anyone would notice... there was no thumbs up, no waving, no cheers.

It's like they didn't even care.

Looky what arrived early! I'll be putting this bad boy on over the long weekend. Although they're just for the honest crooks, I'm glad now that I got the lock cylinders for my Decked storage system.

I completed installing the Fab Fours Black Steel Elite front bumper this morning. The ACC radar module isn't in its permanent location yet. Since taking this photo, I removed the little rectangular badge on the bumper cover plate.



Installation thread here.

I received my first "Collision Warning Disabled - sensor blocked, see manual" message on my dash today. I acknowledged it and it went away. I should be able to get my painted parts this week for installation next weekend. I'll be able to relocate the radar module then and restore ACC settings.

I picked up center caps, tailgate lettering, grille, and emblem from the paint shop today... and they look good. I'll be installing over the next few days.

I applied the ABS "PLATINUM" lettering from eBay and the OEM "F150" emblem to the tailgate. I had both sprayed with J7 this week. I think it was worth it, but I won't really know until I get around to washing the truck.
