    First Black Out Project This Weekend

    So, I'm sure this is not new to anyone on this forum but I did want to share a short gig about my first project as a newbee. Since the first time I saw a Sun Fusion F J in 2007 I have wanted one. Just bought one and I am doing a Black Out on it. This weekend I hit the front: replaced old scratched up headlights, replaced the stock OEM front turn signals with LED Blacked Out ones, removed grill, front bumper and small front plates. Sanded all - primed with Rustolem and sprayed with Rustolem Truck Bed Coating............. project went fairly well considering...............the thing that caused me the most trouble was replacing the front lower bumper valance (old one was cracked.....the nuts holding the old valance on has rusted bad and would not come loose......after 3 in 1 - mystery oil and WD 40 to no avail - I finally broke out the trusted Dremmel and a cutting wheel.......was able to get the nuts off after cutting.........dang.........finally here are some pics of the Project progressed along............ coming next: front hood cowl.....front ARIES Bull Bar with OEM TOYOTA Flood Lights, Bushwacker fender flairs, back bumper black out, rear view camera, replacing the radio with a Kenwood
    Apple" Wireless system.....still waiting on Gear black out rims and Nitto Grappler 2's to arrive.....should be this week also......Comments appreciated................
