Well, I've talked about it enough that it's finally happened. Last weekend we started on my front bumper and made some solid progress. One of my business partners also has a welding company and CNC table top plasma cutters, and man, does it make things a lot easier! Now, granted, you do have to pull measurements from the truck and literally draw everything out in Autocad, but it was well worth it. We were able to get the basket for the winch to sit in and the main structure of the bumper. Tomorrow, we're getting after all the bar work and should finish up everything.
As I've said before, I'm in love with the whole setting up of the lights thing and put a lot of time into putting mine together. You'll really be able to tell when I get my rear bumper finished up. But that's a whole different story.
Some of the inspiration I used was from the 90's model Cadillacs that had the side light kick on, when the turning signals came on. This allows you to see where you're turning and I thought it was the coolest idea when I was younger.
So, I'll have two lights at a 15 degree angle, then a set at about 8 degrees. This should allow me to see everything around the front of the truck and will be a good place for my side lights to pick up. If you don't remember, I'm going for 360 degrees of light and it's going to be awesome. Be sure to keep an eye out on the IG if you want to see the finished product!!

As always, this is Rich, signing off.
