    Took the LS Mail Jeep to Rausch Creek for Crawltoberfest. Figured I could get some good shots on the rocks.

    Thanks, he seems to be. He is a buddy of mine, so I'm excited I will finally get to see one perform from time to time.

    I used a new process for me on this build. The last piece of this puzzle is an aluminum louvers plate attached to the center bump of the hood.

    I thought of several different methods for accomplishing this, but decided on doing stamped aluminum. The idea was seen on Harley Designs YouTube channel. Basically you make a positive and negative mold and press soft aluminum between them. Josh at Harley Designs was kind enough to help me with some of the design struggles.

    I am new to Fusion 360 and do not own a 3D printed. However, I wish I had a dollar for everytime someone tells me to buy one. Anyway, I used several new to me design techniques picked up by scouring YouTube. I especially like Lars Christianson for his educational videos.

    My friends at Adam and Aiden Pocono Scale offered to print the molds for me. After a few back and forth between Adam and Josh, I finally got the mold to a good spot. If I was to start over again, I would do so much different but I was too far down the road on this one.

    Instead of buying expensive soft aluminum from McMaster Carr, I used aluminum flashing from the hardware store. It was $1.70 so we?ll within the budget. The aluminum was cut to rough shape and placed in the mold. I first squeezed it in the vise and then smacked it with a dead blow hammer several times. The end result is amazing. Not as crisp as it could have been, but more amazing than I could have dreamed.

    This thing is so money. Can we petition to move this to Guild's Finest?!
