Yep, KR with Harley headlamps. Those are just inserts in the grille. I don't have a close up, but you can see it a little better in this pic:

Installed a bush guard I picked up for cheap. Heavy duty military one. Have to still sandblast it and paint it, but I wanted to make sure that it fit properly.

Did first start-up of the company's 6 liter F550 after doing head gaskets, oil cooler, ARPs, etc.

Found a few ATF leaks but nothing that's not fixable.

Today I installed my Fumoto block drain plugs and took a coolant bath in the process. Also replaced my thermostat.

My plugs were stuck pretty good and even a breaker bar wouldn't budge them for me, the 8mm allen was beginning to round the plug.
I had been anxious about trying an impact gun on them so I left them be. Well today I had nothing better to do so I said what the hell, and it worked! I remember a few guys were in the same boat as me and also not sure about using an impact on the plugs, but about 2 short pulses on the trigger and they finally started to turn.

You gotta LOVE impact guns!

I didn't work on it today, but I did order the Atlas 40hp FICM tune for one of my FICM's!

Did a brake fluid flush and power steering fluid flush last night. Surprised me with the brake flush. Brake pedal now higher and lost a some mushiness. Didn't realize it until after flush/bleed.
