    My Avid step rails!! I'm super excited about these :D

    I wont unwrap them until I get a chance to finish 'em - probably not for another two weeks or so. But they make me smile when I imagine seeing them on my truck!

    Speaking of finishing them - my co-worker suggested sanding with 400 grit, then using a degreaser, then primer, then paint. Is all that necessary? Or do these things keep paint well without too much prep?

    LOL.. I just talked to Brandon at Avid about that!!

    This is what he said:

    We do all the prep work before we ship them. When you get them they are ready to be coated. You don't need to sand them. If you spray paint them, just wipe them down with acetone or brake cleaner and then I'd prime them and then paint them. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks

    Also - wanted to thank Brandon at Avid for being a very stand-up guy to work with, he kept me up to date on what was going on with my order, even when he was swamped over the holidays. I'd be happy to buy from him again and recommend his work to anyone looking for quality stuff for their truck. http://www.avidoffroad.com/

    jjbsocal: Thanks! Now that I think about it, he might have gave me the same information... Good to know anyway. I'll just wipe down, prime, and paint. This really is quality stuff... Brandon clearly cares about his work.
