7.3 Build up!

OK so this week marked the day of "Project face lift" for the 99

Now most of you saw pics of it when I bought it... I hate the chrome stuff on the rocker panels and fenders.... so the last 2 days it all came off... we found a little rust on the fenders... sanded those down and premiered them.... lost a little paint off the rocker panels but that's OK because I am having the rocker panels Line-X next week along with adding the Bushwaker pocket style fender flares... Also added the black steps

Today was a good day... other that the blisters on my hands and going through 2 heat guns getting this crap off the truck... Oh and also added a billet grill... this is one of many new additions to the truck in the next couple weeks.. I will keep you all updated here.

Here is a pic of before:


Both sides complete (you can also see the primer job)



Ok since then I have added the 05 badges, front fender flares, I have also replaced the head lights and roof lights.




Today witht he new headlights!

The grill is a replacement.. its plastic chromed.. I got it off EBay.. same seller I had got my old one off of when I had my F250 v10.. Lasted for a little over a year.. but for 100 bucks you cant go wrong plus I like the grill on it.. Headlights I will look up the info...

The side mirrors will be done after I take care of the line-x and I will go with the towing mirrors.. plus I like those a lot better. :)

Hopefully today we will be putting in my 6 position chip from Discount Power Parts (Elite Diesel chip) and work on my Quadzilla commander.

Highon20s, Where did you get your clear corners? How long have you had them? Any issues with them?
