I found it at WalMart a few years ago.They are really hard to find now. When you find them now they're like almost $100.

yeah..I just paid 90 bucks for that nissan,but I just had to have it..lol..I dont know if I will do it again,but this one is my trial and error truck..im learning a lot,but theres always the need to know more...Trying not to cause any perminate damage though..lol

little more done..just sprayed it to see how this color goes with the truck..not a fished product yet..still gotta do some putty work..just got the dremel and used it on the frame asap..lol..should have practiced with it first...not to much damage was done though..it's fixable..thinking of adding cantilever bags on the front since I have the coilovers too??...just a mock up of a hood to see what kind of clearances i'll have with wheels n turbo
