Just with the final base coats applied, 3 total. no clear yet.




This is with just 2 coats of clear. Gonna let it fully cure, and then wet sand with 600, then another probably another 2 coats.



So far so good
Looks good so far! I might do this with my chrome bumper

Follow the directions on the drill. A cheap stamped steel pop riveter is not going to do the job, and the drill is an oddball size that Home Depot doesn't carry. Go to the next size up and the rivet won't seat, next size down and you won't get it in.
You can, if you're careful, ream the hole out with the smaller size.

Lower mount goes in with sheet metal screws, so a smaller size works just fine.

Sorry for the crappy cell pics, but I didn't feel like dragging out the DSLR.


Hmmmm....mine mounts here...and fits great

I didn't trust that thin lip. There's a lot of pressure in those struts.


Edit: Yup... PDF says to mount it on the solid lower surface.

Thanks! I am pretty impressed with this paint. Once it gets close to empty, you're better off switching cans. Don't want it to sputter during a final coat. Also don't start and stop over the piece. Long sweeping strokes to avoid splatter/spots.
I sent you a PM SR5808.

Did my 30k tune-up today:

- Cleaned the AFE intake
- New spark plugs
- Oil Change/Filter
- Rotated the tires, re-torqued everything
- Cleaned the brake pads/rotors
- Cleaned the sh*t out of intake tube, MAF, throttle body
- Greased all zerk fittings
- Cleaned the cabin filter
- Measured out my mid-skid to be built tomorrow

My spark plugs definitely needed replacing, and the whole intake/throttle body was long overdue for a cleaning. Judging by the condition of the plugs, and the deposits in my throttle body, my engine is running a little too rich (combination of my lead foot, CAI, and 3" cat-back???). I might talk to Gadget about a MAF calibrator to remedy it.

Tomorrow I'm gonna finish making my second skid (transmission skid) and help Chickenmunga with his FamousFab shackle flip. Should be another productive day

Dropped her off at a shop to have the new high clearance rear bumper with swing away and skids installed/finish being fabbed up. Hope to have her back tomorrow night. So excited.

I would've used more than a layer of TPS Report cover sheets. Overspray is a bitch.

They were PC originally, I just sprayed the tops of them to rough them up a bit. Didn't have to worry about overspray too much, and the bottoms are still only PC'd, so I think I'm good. Plus, it is only one coat, rocks don't really care what you spray your sliders with when the weight of the truck is on them.

I think Doording is referring more to the paper protection on your truck. I also would have put more paper up higher.
Looks great tho. I would also prefer bedliner to powder coat

I know what he meant. Since I was only spraying where I step I didn't have to worry about the over spray getting any higher then that. Yeah PC'ing them was nice for a good base coat, but I kept slipping on the fuggers, so bedliner it was. Probably put on a second coat tomorrow.

I wouldn't worry much. At that angle, any overspray that did make it on the paint would probably wash off anyway.

Now that it's warming up, I'll bedliner mine again. I like using the extra cheezy plastic drop cloths that only cost a dollar or two. They're easy to drape over most of the truck and remove any overspray issues. That'll be a lot easier than unbolting them.

I've got some 3M grip tape to put on the top where I put a heel on them getting in and out. I started scratching through the bedliner when rocks would lodge in my boot soles, and I think that tape will hold up better.
