    Baldwin, Your'e welcome and thanks for saying something...we appreciate that. I have alot of mod aspirations but have decided to use my extra money to buy a WaterCraft first. So Mods will wait but I will get the front windows tinted in NM (darker allowable laws) before I head to TN. I will also get Xspray right away as well. As for the LED Tail lights, Xenon/projector headlights, wind deflectors, weather tech mats, etc...those will come later. I have never (even in passing) seen a Raptor in real life. I purchased solely off of my gut feeling (Police Officer of 3 years so Gut feeling is pretty "in-tune")from what I have read about it on this site.

    In my Xspray research, I learned that prep is the key. So I'm gunna find a shop that has a neat and well kept (professional) appearance and that sand blasts as a prep RATHER than the chemical prep which I am told is not the best way. Sand blast prep with a hot xspray application should result in the best outcome. More expensive and takes a few hours longer but as I'm sure you agree....worth it.
