Dually progress

The 2wd short bed is currently on hold for now because I've been working on the idi.

I'll start with the engine bay still needs a lot but its definitely better.

Quality might be poor uploading them this way.

When I got the truck there was over spray everywhere. The paint was hazy and didn't really have a shine to it.

The haze is hard to see with the way the shop lights reflect

Bumper was also bent with faded paint

After a few hours of cleaning the paint had a nice shine to it. No more over spray

Painted the bumper


Put new rear tires on and cut the stacks down while it was on stands the day after cleaning it

Here she is mostly clean was a few days after originally cleaning it but still looks quite a bit better than ot did. Towed a tahoe and 2 jeeps with it over the weekend. Not super impressed with the power but I don't have a pyrometer yet to tune it better. Will also be doing a cam and have an intercooler sitting around that may find it's way into the truck.

Then tonight, last night whatever you'd like to call it since it's now 3am. Put a set of kc lights behind the grill. Painted the head light trim black, polished up the lights and painted the lower metal trim piece as it didn't have very good coverage from whoever painted the truck.

The airbox was already annoying after changing a glow plug and needing to do the oring on an injector.
