I dropped the tow hitch to sand and repaint. My 02 is in amazing condition. We have owned it for the 18 years, serviced it religiously at the same shop and it is bone stock.

It has a few dings acquired over the years so I am systematically working them out and just got permission to do some mods.

Removed front and rear bumper painted them with Raptor liner also removed running boards and installed new mud flaps all the way around. Finally starting to look the way I want. What Did You Do To Your 3rd Gen Today?

Coated the inside of the frame with Eastwood internal frame coating. In the fall I plan to spray some Fluid Film inside the frame also for extra protection.

Looking good. Did you spray on or roll on the Raptor liner?

Just sprayed with the can then let dry overnight, it was pretty easy however Iím curious to see how it will hold up over the chrome. I sanded and primed really well. That part took longest.

Cool

Masked the chrome off on my front grill and painted the black accents with a fresh coat of semi gloss black to get rid of the 19 years of road rash.
The grill looks brand new now

Dropped her off at the body shop for some TLC. Always a stressful experience since you never really know what you're going to get back. Fingers crossed.

Not hard at all, took about an hour to remove all the cladding. I didn't do it the way other tutorials recommended (removing all the interior panels), I just yanked it all off. That does damage more clips, but clips are cheap and time is money - and removing all the interior trim risks damaging other things.

This leaves the body with over 60 holes though, so you'd have to be ready for a full repaint if you want to leave the cladding off and patch the holes.

I'll be writing up a tutorial on this project once I get everything finished.

If you have gone that far might as well reseal the oil pan and replace the rear main......

I replaced my PCV valve, grommet, and hose today. In doing so, I realized that the PCV hose and the hose connecting the upper plenum to the intake had been cross connected which explained the oil in my intake I was noticing. While working on the PCV valve, I noticed that I have some insulation that has come off of what I believe is my injector wiring. See picture below. Can anyone confirm that is the injector wiring, and assuming it is, does anyone have an idea of how much of a pain that is to fix?
