Thanks, yeah the finger's been a bummer, amazing how a seemingly small injury like that can be so detrimental. You've got a Landcruiser as well? My buddy's got an '86 with an OME lift and 33s, he loves it haha

Thanks! I used Rust-Oleum Primer Sealer that I got from AutoZone. I bought some mineral spirits as well to clean up after sanding. Good luck...
