well i figured id make a build thread of the tb changing over time just because i dont wanna be making new threads for every exciting thing i do. this isnt gonna be something that will be done reall quick it is gonna take some time. i have pretty much set of what i want it to look like.



now i know ive done posted some of this but im just gonna put it on this thread too. to start off i did my headlights they turned out pretty good but ive got some moisutre in them so i think ima put some more glue on them i have seen a few spaces that arent sealed.


today was a pretty fun time, few days ago i primed my ss bumpers front and back and put my front one on cause its missing a bracket and i gotta find a way to make it work. but heres 2 more ****ty cell pics.


i plan on havving the bracket on soon and then itll be time for paint more updates to come.

you cant use the bracket from the LS bumper?
well its a long story i thought u could but what i learned was an 02 up LS and 02-05LT does have a different bracket then the ss bumper. when they changed to the bumpers that the grille goes into like a ss bumper or 06 lt bumper it seems they thought theyd make a better reinforced bracket its really not. so he sent me with one. what i did today was put the bumper on, put the bracket on and then set it where it need to be then i put some vice grips to hold it together, took the bumper off, marked out the bracket, put some scraatches on the inside of the bumper and loaded it down with panel bond, im hoping it works. also today i found out the a denali bumper bracket is different too. lol so they changed them brackets a few times more then likely because there know for coming off the bumper.

panel bond is ur friend lol. for the holes i just put table on the top have went from the inside bumper and wiped panel bond on the hole. for the reflectors i cut out a plastic template try to make it flush...big mistake if u do it..recess the filler in a hair bit then u wipe it with panel bond. panel bond can be filled up thicker then bondo. after sanding them i wiper each with bondo.
