Avid Off Road, Class act!

Light bar just arrived today! The UPS truck pulled up and I knew what was on the truck, if the driver hadn't been looking at me I would have done the "pee-pee" dance! The light bar was perfect, fit and construction! Hats off to Avid for a superb product! Now the hard part....what kind of finish to use! I'll post pics when I decide.

Definitely powder coat. I did mine jet black gloss and it looks great...matches my N Fab nerf bars perfectly.

Brandon is awesome with his customer service. Got my light bar and rear bumper guard this past week and love them! I went with Rustoleum Bed liner srpay, easy to use and super strong. And much easier to touch up if scratched than powder coat would be.

If it were me, I'd do a light sand to knock off any surface rust, hit it with a degreaser to clean any oils off left over from fabrication, Rustoleum bare metal primer, 2 coats of Rustoleum paint, then 2 coats of Rustoleum Bed Liner. Let each layer get a full cure before applying the next (especially between the paint and bed liner). I did that to my skid plate when I had it off and stripped down to bare metal.

I know it's not required but I figured it couldn't hurt to help seal the metal and keep out the salty atmosphere we have in New England for 6 months out of the year. I do tend to overkill things though...

I'm sure your method is much better than just going straight onto bare metal, but for a lazy/impatient guy like myself, i couldnt wait. I do like the idea of primer, if for nothing else, when it does get scratched there would be less chance of rust forming until the repair could be made.

x2. The touch up part is very helpful. I have had to "touch it up" twice for small scratches my stupid actions have caused...

Had Brandon weld on my sliders last weekend. Class Act! Took his time and made sure everything looked right, even with the temp reaching 104°. Now debating what I need to order from him next.....
