While I wait for some help about what the heck my wiring is doing, I got the driver's side rear painted (nothing has been wetsanded, mind you), as well as all around the windshield and the b-pillar.



I then put the sunroof gasket in, and the top on to see how it looks all together. Me likey

Just a thought. This unit may be for the 2.8 diesel Rocky and not your petrol Rocky. I hope someone can help with the wiring issue. You are doing a great job.

That is one I have not heard of...although it should not be too hard to sort out..you will just have to add your own connectors or butt connect them I guess.

I haven't done it yet, because I'm doing other shenanigans first, but the colors may be different around the world for the different wire purposes, but their job is that same. I was able to find an international diagram someplace (maybe here? I don't recall) and it will be an easy fix. i believe the US one has a ground wire that far back, and the international does not.

Rust Bullet in and done, and now the Monstaliner is in and done. I applied it earlier, let it cook for a bit under a 30k BTU heater, then reapplied and let it sit all night, for 12 hours, under the propane. Significantly harder now, though taking the tape off last night I did get some to tear off. I'll have to fix that later.

OK, so it's been a very long time since I have updated here, though I have been adding comments to the DROG site on Bookface. So, let me add here for those people not there! Annnnd, well, if I'm an admin, I should add things here, too, right?  :039:

I will not post bumper pics yet. That is for later, since the rear bumper is coming along swimmingly, but I'll wait til it's done.

First, here's how she's looking today:


Here's with the seats installed on the front:


Rear view of the seats:

Bumper progress

So, much going on with the bumpers of McReddy. First, as it's in progress, below: the front bumpers:







Rear bumper is done, but not reassembled yet. Here are some progress pics of it:







Front needs to be trimmed in, but you get the idea.

Thanks, guys!

I'm actually not sure that they will pass inspection, as they do not have high beams...or if they do, they don't have the extra wire that I've seen some Ferozas or Rockys have that appears to handle the high beams. If not, if I have to dump them, I'm going to swap to some other LED ones I have seen with a center bar that works as a DRL

I have been eyeing the led light bars myself...I figured one up on the windshield bar and the other in the brush guard.
