    Bumper and sliders getting sand blasted and primed tomorrow.

    I've began plasti dipping chrome. Pretty happy with results. I'm new to this but am seeing why so many folks like it. Emblems, door handles and rear bumper all chrome.... now becoming black. :)

    In progress now:

    I purchased a Viair 88P that will be here on Friday. I came across some folks putting hood struts on and deemed that an "important" mod. I ordered a Redline kit for $86 delivered that will be here Thursday. I pretty excited about the strut kit. No prop rod when airing up. :muscleflexing:

    This weekend should be full of installing goodies that I've been working on for nearly a month now. I hope to pick up the primed sliders and bumper NLT Thursday. I still have to "truck bed" them and topcoat them.

    Big day today. Picked up bumper and sliders from getting sand blasted and painted. Here's first pic of bumper on truck20200521_064458.jpg 20200521_064424.jpg

    Just got through spraying truck bed on the bumper. Next is some semi-gloss.

    I'm real happy with the paint. Two coats of truck bed, then lightly sand to knock off the grit, then two coats of semi-gloss. Textured look but will hopefully be easy to clean.

    I installed the Redline hood strut kit this morning. I can see why folks say this is one of their favorite mods. Pretty easy to do but with great rewards. I went with my own dimensions(have seen others do similar) when installing the hood bracket to provide a higher hood open position. The directions say 14 5/8" from the end of the hood hinge to the edge of the bracket. I went 13-1/8" which doesn't "max out" the hinge angle. This dimension places the bracket in a position that causes some of the rivets to go through an area of the hood that isn't flat. I used the bracket as a guide when I drilled and it went well. I used the USA made pop rivet gun I have had for at least 25 years. :oldglory:

    Thanks Jeff. Sliders are done too, I hope to bolt them on tomorrow. Where's everyone going next weekend?
