    Sealer is applied and awaits HOK Tri-coat. Took care of that nasty rust and cleaned up the rockers. We are changing up the base to HOK and using a Shimerin' with pearl for the seven layer clear. Three layers will be laid, wet sand, then the final four, wet sand then buff, and finally polish.

    Re: 1999 Rango, a little revamping

    Since I am having split duels ran behind the rear tires there is no need for this little exhaust cut out, unfortunately I had to make both side match since the OE bumper cover is molded to have the cut out.

    Wheels, front bumper, and headlights are now installed. Still need to get the rear spoiler on and replace the radiator and A/C condenser bracket.

    Re: 1999 Rango, a little revamping

    I performed a "cut through" in the hid-away compartment in the rear. Yes it hits hard.

    12 grade cold rolled stainless welded to make the enclosure carrier:




    The enclosure. Sealed, 1" thick high density.



    Perfect fit....with some hammers:



    Box welded to chassis:

    FIBERGLASS!!!!! To seal it up tight, and some carpet over it:





    And no one knows the wiser. Plus it leaves a lot of room that most enclosures take up.
