Diy Highline.

Unread postby 4x4ndad » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:41 pm

Started the Diy highline with the instructions from higherground website. My friend came over at about 230pm by 830pm both fenders were off and the hood was cut up. The time included dinner break (Nikos and a run to home depot for bolts and wshers for the rear flares) Only used 2 blades to cut the hood and only broke 1 fender bolt. Got luky the bolt that broke was at the bottom of the tub on the passenger side and the hole won't be reused. So far so good.. :thumb: :thumb:

Day 2

Day 2 started out ok. Ended up pulling the radiator due to standard quality issues, leaking at both tank seams. Started at 630pm by midnight had the radiator pulled out, all the cross bracing cut, holes drilled at fender to tub mounting points and drivers fender bolted into palce and pulled the curve at the headlight. the goal is to have done and running by midnight day 3. (At least the front finished.)

Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side and it holds Tice's truck together.

I don't forget, my brain just disregards insignificant details in my sleep.

Friend and Inspiration..RIP Josh.

Day 3 passenger side fender pulled arround grill, started at 730pm. Put everything back together, taped off hood for final trim/ fitting. Reinstalled new radiator, Finished up at 230 am.
Day 4 made final cuts on hood, added fender trim to cut edges of hood, reinstalled battery. set hood latches front is finished. started at 730 pm finished by 10pm. Still have brackets to build and fender supports to finish up. But got it rolling by my Thursday deadline. Pictures will be added soon. Need to wait for a day off when the sun is still out. Garage is to cramped to get decent pictures. For now check out higherground4x4.com The diy highline instructions are very detailed on how to perform the work with photos.
