I'd highly considered it, but the funds just aren't there. I also didn't learn about the disc swap until a couple weeks after I replaced every piece of the drum brake setup, so it's all been replaced! Haha.

Taking forever, but almost ready for paint! Dent was bigger than I thought. It won't be perfect, but it will be much better.

I got tired of the TPS and IAC screws coming loose and the heads stripping, so for $2.50 at Lowes I picked up some better screws and lock washers. Much better fit!

Underside of the new hood is now refinished! Satin black VHT engine paint, with a light spray of truck bed liner over it for texture.

Why not just buy a new hood instead of repairing a used one? New ones only like 50 iirc. Google "npd crash"

New hoods are garbage in comparison to a factory hood... SO thin and cheap metal.

Looking Good! :)

But I have to ask, what is the little round black thing under the front bumper?

They're yellow projector fog lights that I picked up many, many years ago. I can't get myself to switch away from them, lol.
