Thanks for letting me know. Found it. It was Minitrukin. He has since removed it but the pictures are there.
yeah.one thing i dont believe in is deleting pics that may help someone else on the forum....i have ran into a lot of unanswered questions of my own from people deleting good info from the past here recently.

This.

I never delete my pictures for that reason. Even the pics of my old Land Rover from four years ago are still up.

I just used semi-gloss spray paint on top of self-etching primer. I thought about LineX and Rhino Liner and all the other options, but in the end it's just a small metal bar. I sanded the surface down smooth, then sprayed it over a couple of days. I'll have more pics in this thread soon when I catch up to it (should be about 4 posts away)

Looks good so far. I can't believe they ship those bars like that. They are just asking for bent mounting tabs with them being left exposed like that. Years ago I worked for UPS for a while and I've seen how shipments get treated there. I'm amazed it made it through without damage.

What size bolts did you use for the radiator mount brackets

Actually the left-side bracket was just slightly bent, nothing I couldn't fix with a couple hits with a rubber mallet. That wasy easy... hand sanding the rusty surface was what was difficult.

What size bolts did you use for the radiator mount brackets
5/8" x 1.25" with one flat washer (bolt side) and a split washer (nut side) sandwiching the radiator mount and the light bar bracket.

Love the look of those lights on your truck. Giving me the itch to get some driving lights on my truck. I had a set on my last vehicle and i miss that extra output on back roads around here.

Raine, great lights! I'm looking to do something similar with a set of Hella fogs that I already have, and possibly add a pair of the same PIAA All Terrains, on two separate circuits, of course.

Could you take a photo of how your Blue Sea block looks like now with the PIAA wires attached? I assume that the wire from relay to the battery is now routed to the BS block, while the rest is fairly standard, routing from the PIAA relay to ground, lights, and dashboard switch?

Thanks.
