So I get to the shop, remove the grill and front bumper, cut a template from cardboard for my first piece to the new front bumper, trace it onto some steel, and that's when I notice the plasma cutter isn't working. Lame!! Project delayed for now. As a last resort I may try to use a die grinder to make the cuts. Will update later...

I installed a K&N CAI. As usual, it's freakin' awesome! I also installed a utility light that was on my '88 Chevrolet 1500 that I had back in the day. The K&N heat shield provided a perfect spot for it.




Also, early Christmas present! The Gerber Camp Axe II. I need to figure out where to mount it.
