I hear you on the gouge scenario. I dont think i would go and have them touch it up or spray the whole part because it wouldnt match the rest of th etruck. at that point i think i would just go with a eurathane type of touch up...a Rhino Liner "Bondo" if you will
Obviously these are high goals but this thing i would like to trail ride and mud. When i by the wifes car and this thing is soley for fun then i would like to start building a crawler on the side. I'm talking about actaully making it from the frame up. it would be a fun project and it would last a while...and in the mean time i could still have fun with the Taco. again, High goals... but thats what i want.
