    Bumper lift brackets. Looks much better now. Sits higher & closer.

    So this weekend I wrapped Rubi with 3m vinyl wrap. It wasn’t too bad. Used a hair dryer to heat it. Worked pretty good. Some parts were easy. Some weren’t. (Like the hood). But it turned out ok. I still need to black out around the windows where a little red is shining thru. I liked the light grey hood scoop in contrast with the dark grey so I painted the top to match but
    I don’t know if I’m feeling it yet. It needs a black roof rack over it. Or just to be black again. If I decide that, I’ll get some black vinyl & wrap it.

    I bought a 1’x5’ roll and it was enough. Was around $10.

    Looks like I failed to update but a few weeks ago I added some GMade shocks.

    And tonight I made some lowering brackets thanks to a fellow forum member.

    I had thin plastic and thin aluminum neither strong enough but put together, perfect. Just sucked I had to make 8 instead of just 4.

    It’s coming along... I think it might need a cage over the back. Maybe.
