Nice corde. I was wondering what brand and model the roof rack is. I have been looking for one that fits on our cars for a while because I am sick of putting my muddy bike in the back seat after I am done mountain biking.

Yakima.

shes a trouper!!!

another shot of her with "the pod" on it...

the refinished lights... used the 3M refinish kit.

rotors were a problem, they warped...
have to be machined atleast once a year, sometimes 6 months.(winter mountian season)

spent about 100 a corner, if your getting them id suggest getting heat treated ones. or youll have warping issues...

You can get a bike rack for the trailer hitch,imho better than on the roof.

How much work did it take to refinish those headlights and how much was the kit?
the 3M kit,,,, thats the one. took about 2 hours, taking ALOT of time to "do it right" wasnt as much effort as i expected. but when you sand off the first 2 layers you swear you just ruined the headlights, it starts to look awsome with the rubbing compound if you do the 800 and 1000 grit pads properly..... VERY VERY rewarding....

besides "accidently" having to rebuild my topend, i was trying to fix my grill into a blackedout...but while i was rebuilding it, i dipped the whole dang thing into chrysler red paint..

grabbed 300M autostick stuff... real fun... i need to post pics when i get it in...
have to replace the driverside valvecover thats why its still black/non existant in the pics.

hey who doesnt like monster trucks?
