Warning! After reading this, you may never look at a Tacoma the same way ever again!
This is a dupe.....from about 5 years ago on TTORA although I haven't seen it posted on here so here goes. But first, besides giving credit to the previous poster on TTORA, I want to recognize the guy who invented blue painters tape. My hero!
So, here's a few pics that I vadered to show some really nice trucks (last one is my old truck).
Nice trucks eh? But wait! What's that slag hanging off the bottom of the cab?
Why it's the nasty crude ugly looking pinch weld!
What to do? Cut it off? Nope. Paint it!
Tape it up, light sand (I used steel wool) and clean with rubbing alcohol to remove wax and crud. I sprayed mine with 3M undercoat spray along both sides of the pinch weld so you get the added benefit of sealing it from the elements as well.
Are you following me camera guy???
Final results (pardon the wax).
No more pinch weld!
The sun hasn't come out in 2 weeks around here so the pics of my red truck don't show the change very well but hopefully you get the idea. Here's a few pics of my '03.
So, whaddya think?
