Grill looks good, but I would have to paint the vertical piece right in front of the radiator flat black so it doesn't show.


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - eglaisi - 11-01-2009

I noticed that too. But it is flat black. I'll try shooting it with the same paint I used for the grille (John Deere blitz black Big Grin ) and see if it blends in better.


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - mdawg4x4 - 11-02-2009

WOW! It looks body colored through the grill.


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - BlackTigerSE - 11-02-2009

Added 1.5" wheel adapters to the rear, but wishing i had gotten 2" adapters instead.

didnt really do anything but got a new phone and was testing out the camera on it

I like how in the picture you cant see the cb antenna in the bed... sometimes I have to look twice to make sure its still back there when I get in the truck


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - Sandiegan05fronty - 11-02-2009

That is a GREAT pic for a camara phone! Where do you have the CB antenna mounted?
I had mine in the bed of my truck as well, but now it is laying on the back seat floor, lol

OUCH! What happened?


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - balage - 02-07-2010

It's bad, I'm sorry..
Yes, what happened?

But maybe not too many bodywork. 2 bumpers, light, what I can see. and a little body.


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - mdawg4x4 - 02-07-2010

Ouch!

on my way to work, saturday morning, i hit some water in the slowest lane (very very right side lane), on the freeway. my rear end stepped out and i started to spin, hit another car's rear bumper, then i kept going to the left side of the freeway (fast lane/left side lane then the left side shoulder), my front end hit the center divider. i was able to drive it back home but the fender liner is rubbing on the tire. thankfully no one got hurt and the insurance adjuster is taking a look at it tomorrow or maybe tuesday to asses the damage.

and yes, i was doing legal freeway speeds, possibly lower because it was pouring hard that morning and visibility was waay reduced....

That'll buff out. Wink


My truck got a new upper ball joint, three new TREs, and a new inner CV boot.
I need to do alot more than that for it as I get time. I want it to be 100% for the spring trail riding season.

Due to exterior paint damage to the left rear wheel opening, mod on the way:

Talk about a throwback. Big Grin


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - mdawg4x4 - 07-11-2010

I always liked the 1st gen flares, but then, I was around during the bushwacker cutout flare days of the early Broncos and Blazers. I even had a set of bushwacker flares on my 79 Datsun KC, but not the pocket style with the bolt heads showing.

OUCH carphreak!!!!! It's going to need a very BIG bandage. lol

I haven't done anything to my truck in a while, but put gas in it. uggg

Damage control:
One night my wife was watching pedestrians to the right at the hospital and didn't see the signs in the left lane. This is a tight "U" shaped drive through the awning at the lobby. Needless to say, she scraped the left rear wheel opening down the edge of the sign.

The sign.

The damage.

The fix.
Rust and scratches sanded away, self etching primer, light coat of spray on bedliner to seal it off from the elements,,,and Bushwacker Fender Flares, and no more visible damage.

Looks great Mike!


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - Phelan - 08-18-2010

So any recommendations on a rear bumper for a 2007? Started the day out getting rear ended, yay!


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - mdawg4x4 - 09-26-2010

Installed a newly acquired NISMO CAI on my NISMO Frontier. A little sound of attitude when under acceleration.


RE: What have you done for your truck today? - mdawg4x4 - 09-30-2010

Thanks to scrivok, top notch guy to do business with. I got the NISMO CAI installed.

Also, thanks to bwarren for the WRF light bar. Ben and my son worked with Chris at WRF (White Rhino Fabrication) to develop a simple light bar for the 2nd gen Frontier with a chrome bumper. Ben upgraded to the Calmini pre-runner bumper and sold his WRF light bar to me. I modified the outer 2 mounting points to accept my fog lights, resprayed it with aerosol bed liner, and added a new set of lights.
