Welp, I ripped the blinders out (literally on one, still got a foot of Blinder cable stuck inside my hood), and put in the ALPs!

The fronts are held together with some 3M for the moment, the rears are on the proper mounts, tested JTG/JFG from a rookie shooter (since my roommate wasn't up to drive it for me, I had his girlfriends sister shoot at it from a tripod) with a PL3.

I BARELY made the connections on the rear, had maybe 2" to spare. I need to build a cover for where the CPU is in the cab, it also seems to be making a wooshing noise when powered on, its kinda weird, dunno if its normal, but I can definitely hear it. It's almost like air being let out of a very small hole when it's on, goes away when turned off.

More pictures tomorrow. I am le tired!

I also really need to take apart the headlights and dry them out and reseal them, the leaking got worse when I put in the new morimoto bulbs and had to rip off the sealant they used because they did a shitty job of retrofitting them. Blah.

:3 I hope so, I couldn't get shit when I tried to shoot the front the other day, I'm not really worried about using tape for the front install, my blinders were on tape for... almost a year I think, with no problems.

Which 3M are you using?

That'll work, but can be a bitch to remove. I've been using the Industrial Velcro for temp mounts.

I don't know about the rear I think I would go a little wider if you can. The front looks solid nice job can't wait for more pictures!

Just bring your tape with you for the test in a few weeks.

I use the 3M tape with no issues. The rear should probably be a little wider. The front definitely looks JTG and the rear well, we shall see.:) BTW, very nice install!
