    Ok, not 100% perfect, but real close.
    The paint is weird, under florescent light the oe yellow is slightly orange and the new yellow is lemon yellow.
    This morning the sky was cloudy, and the oe yellow was lemon and the new yellow was slightly orange!?
    Later on the sun came out and the oe and the new yellow were almost perfect.
    I drove it to work and the brakes need more work. I resurfaced the rotors, and I can't believe how bad they shake. So I will replace them and see if that is the problem.
    I can't get the radio out of safe mode.
    I need to get some aluminum to cover the inside of the tailgate.
    I'm waiting on my third brake light to come in.
    Then a little interior work.
    Real close!

    Can't get the radio out of SAFE mode.....
    This is a problem that a dealer is going to have to fix, or have re-coded for you, you also might try a stereo shop that works on dealer radios, they would know what to do to re-code it. I would try the radio shop first, you might want to talk to a dealer to see who they use. (damn factory alarm systems)
    Brakes need work.......
    Arrgghhh could be a lot of things, here again, talk to a dealer and see what they have to say, my first thought is the rotors are out of true, you turned them that should have fixed the simple problems, but there is no telling what your problem could be. Could be bad brake pads, or your propositioning valve body, bleed them again. Right rear first, then left rear, then right front and left front last, make sure you never run it out of fluid, otherwise start all over again.
    How my suggestions help, and nice job on the conversion. :thumb::thumb::thumb:
