    I would give it 3 coats for good measure. Seeing that you're in Cali, it won't take long to dry but it will depend on the humidity. When all else fails, read the side of the can.

    So I painted them, read the side of the can, and the dam paint still wasnt dry at the given time. In any case, I flipped them over to paint the other side and the opposing side came out retarded as it has marks from the points it was resting on. I got them welded on today cuz I barely have time to take my truck in and today I had some time so I ended up getting them on, retarded paint and all. How do I fix the blemishes? Sand? and repaint? What grit is best?

    I completely agree that theyll get fd up as time progresses and thats why Ive completely forgotten about the bottom side. Its the top side thats irritating the crap out of me. Just looks like I did a really shitty paint job, which I did. And I doubt Ill get too many hits on the top side....thanks for the info though. I appreciate it.

    400-600 will get rid of minor blemishes. For BAD blemishes I would hit it with a 220 and the follow with a 400-600 grit. On a side note:
    :worthless:

    Nice, I have the same sliders, but DOM, Adam is great! Those blemishes are fine, just brush some bedliner on top and make it a foot hold. Truck looks amazing tho!
