Awesome work on the lip so far!

Have you thought about using the 12V at the map light?
I've been meaning to look into how to get some power up there as I'd really like to install an auto-dimming mirror.
Maybe by switching to interior LED lights you won't pop the fuse.

I am not sure. I know my dome light turns on without the key, just by pressing the button. So its a constant voltage.

Here is more loose test fits with the lip. There is a whole in the fender and a whole in the lip that I lined up. It does leave the lip a little long on the rear and would need to be trimmed. Fitment is good at this angle though. I will test and see how things fit by using the whole lip then I will decide which method to setup my mounting. Once I mount it, I will figure out my trim points then I can prep it for paint.

So I am trying to sort out my washer pump. I just pulled it to test it, and it works. So I need to figure out why its not firing when I pull the lever for it. Once I get this sorted then I can put my underplastic on and fit my lip.

I also painted my jack railings flat black.

So I have been working hard on my studio and its almost done. My business is going to be the priority in my life once its finished. I did work on the car some today.
So for some reason my pump is not getting power. The plug is connected properly. I need to figure out where this could be interrupted. I had to take a wheel off to get to it, so since it was off I went ahead and put my summer wheels back on. I think I am getting the lip sorted out.

I decided I am going to try and fit the whole side length of the lip. My concern is where it rounds instead of squares at the wheel well. I used my dremel to grind it out some. I am just doing a little at a time since I can not add material. There is not a lot of material to drill through and I do not want to mess up my bumper so I am working on my attachment solution. I am using some double sided tape, but I am also going to fasten in some places. I want to be able to remove it for winter so I am measuring twice before drilling.

Looking good, I'm keeping an eye on how this turns out.

I am still on the fence for cutting it short or leaving it long. I might mess with it some tomorrow.
Its going to rain the next few days and I will be busy this weekend so I pulled my dash again.

I want to add a second ground to my radio.
I ran the wires for my radar detector. I found I could put the wire under the top door plastic/leather the run under the dash. It was long enough to reach my main power junction I built.
I need to push my cigarette lighter back in.
I sanded and painted the scuffs I made on my center plastic when I was hauling my new tires.
I am going to make some sort of cover for my boost controller. While the center is out, I am going to shampoo the rest of my carpet.
I also got the rest of my missing door screws and connectors installed.
I also found my temp sensor for the heat system was unplugged, so that is sorted now.

Since I have the dash out I am doing all the things I need to get done in there. I cleaned the whole carpet in the car. I also fixed my stuck passenger seat. There was a screw stuck in the track and the cable under neath the seat came unhooked. I also made my new din cubby. I had a 6th gen pocket but it does not work with an aftermarket radio. I could had used it as was, but I needed to take off the surround bezel from the radio if I wanted to open it. I was going to make a door for my other cubby, then I realized I just needed to trim the door some. I used the diamond cutter I bought for my front lip and rigged up some of a straight method for cutting. Straight enough anyhow. Now I can use this cubby. I just need to cut some holes in the back for the boost controller and done.

Everything is installed back. I added a second ground to the radio, now there is no hint of noise over the speakers.
Can't even tell I have a boost controller in there.

That looks way good man. I'm jealous cause second gear pulls tend to send whatever i have in my cubby flying. Lol.

Thanks, I think it makes a big difference. I am now trying to decide to either find some decent cf hood/headlight trim or wrap mine in some CF vinyl or something.

I am about to cover mine in real carbon fiber. I should be doing it in about 2-3 weeks. If you like the way mine come out, I could do it for you as well.
the VIS hood group buy is now closed.... you missed out!

Sure, keep me posted. This might be a better option. I am curious how it will look next to the clear corners.

It does not look too bad to do. I might try to wrap it myself. My only concern is trying to get the corner light right so they match.

I got the rear strut bar installed today. Its not too bad to take out if I ever need to carry anything large.
