Damn I need to update this, lets see:
Well first, I polished the truck and coated with Polish angel, but I made a critical mistake of not polishing deep enough to get those water spots. Under normal lighting they didn't show up, but in the sun the truck looks like a ghosted leopard. NOT good. So I'll have to polish off the coating, compound out all the water spots and check under some brighter lights (bought a few that can do a better job), and then repolish and re-coat with Polish Angel. That said, its a good product based on my experience with it so far, and though it is expensive, a little goes a really long way so it should be worth it in the end.
This is the mess I'm dealing with on the polish side
And after I thought I got all of those marks out with light polishing
I really thought I nailed it, but guess not. ANYWAY, moving on to the next project:
I got my Tygers in. I'm unhappy with the paint so I didn't take many pics of the bars, but here's one
I got my Arsenal-Offroad LED bar. A single curved 31" 5D unit. She's bright, I tested it with a 12V supply
These are the Rough Country mounting brackets, but as you can see here I've drilled a couple extra holes in it. In this moment I was experimenting with alternate mount points, because their setup pushes the light bar too far forward to be behind the grille. I didn't want to cut up the bumper to fit this light bar, so I started adapting/experimenting.
I lack high precision tools for metal, but a jigsaw with a metal-cutting blade did this pretty well. I got pretty thin on the front edge, but its holding and these won't have a ton of stress on them. Because the light bar is curved and 31" long, I had to bend the brackets in a vice in a few different directions, to get my bar to fit.
This is the included switch for the lightbar. Way too damn big!
This was my solution, a much smaller switch
This pic does not do justice to how bright this light is. This is just a few feet from the wall, and it is almost too bright to look at.
I ordered LED's and HID's. I went DDM Tuning HID low beam (5500k), Hikari high beam, and Imosontec fog lights.
