ok, not much done, but i did make a either its a oil cooler OR a intercooler, haven't choosen yet.

WITHOUT cooler:


WITH COOLER:


(Sorry for the goofing off with the black sharpie, i got bored one day............., BUT the 2 fog lights are going to be removed to make air brake cooling ducts!)

and the almost finished tail lights: (i DIDN'T bmf chrome the back of the turn signals cause i wanted them more "hidden"......., i still gotta do the black trim around the tail lights)

ok, after finishing up the suspension and ect. i ran into a problem: (please note the sidetrim, it still stock, non-modded)






and then i did some body work: i opened the foglight openings for cooling ducts: (please note the stock headlights and how tall the lights are!




i sanded the sidetrim smooth, for a clean body line(hopefully)



here is my first time doing this mod, the sleepy eyed look! i am using metal tubing to make the projector type lights
