Have plenty of updates just been to busy to post.

But did learn something cool this evening, you can use a late model window switch in a early model for the auto down function

But the housing is slightly longer and wont work in the early trim panel. Going to figure a way around that issue

Going by description thats just the grille insert sir.

Didnt find the tear drop looking one around the fog lights. But LMC has some options that are close

Ive got behind on post between working on both trucks

Made the dent look better in the bumper, fog lights mounted and cut up the accord billet grilles for the bumper. Not perfect fit but they'll do until i decide what to do for a new bumper.

Wired the relay for the fog lights to the cargo light switch since that be shaved off the roof (no pics)

*never mind my dent pulling procedure* OSHA approved:waytogo:

If I keep adding gmt800 stuff does it make it less of a 400?

Changed park light sockets so the front would also be 3157 never understood why that didnt change over their life cycle

Added an 800 mirror since those have comp and temp, Added temp sensor by the horn seems to be a good spot haven't seen temp spikes just sitting like i did with the astro i swapped

Can see the mirror in daylight here but also see the 800 jump seat. Also found my 90's steering wheel lock thought it fit the theme well. lol

Never liked those. I always thought someone would steal the steering lock and not my car. To be fair my truck back then was worth $50.
