Default 2thousand5.4's build

Ok so I'm looking to give my f150 a stormtrooper look and I took the first step today. I plasti dipped the Grey grill to a matt black. IMO it turned out nice.

To come in the near future:
Convert all the lights to LEDs
White rocker panels
Window tint
09+ badges and 4x4 decals
Black rims (probably just plasti-dipped stock lariat ones)
PTM bumpers
Hi-flow cats

Here's what she looks like right now

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make any real progress until Christmas (grandparents basically came out and said they will buy the paint for me for Christmas). Other than that, I should be able to do the tint and throw an exhaust tip on pretty soon.

Well I guess I was playing my music to loud cause my speakers to a crap on me yesterday. Today I went by Wal mart and picked up a pair of 250 watt 6x8s, I forgot what brand they are though. They aren't really anything to fancy or special because I'm still a little short on funds right now. But they are 3 way speakers and they sound really good for 30 bucks.

Finally got around to fixing the odometer that wasn't lighting up all the time. It was annoying the crap out of me!

Why was it doing that, I have the exact same problem, it just comes on whenever it feels like it.
How did you fix it?

It's the soldering connections on the back of the electrical bored. To fix it you half to take out your whole speedo assembly and take off about half the trim on the dash

Ok so I got the bed lights in a few days ago, but I'm still trying to find time to install the rest of my lights and do the plasti dip. Anyways the bed lights go on and off with the interior lights and cargo light, like when a door is open or just after the truck gets unlocked. They are brighter in person.
