    I've used the gray can of Steel-It when doing the cab mount chop and really like the way the Steel-It comes out. I'd like to try the grey on my sliders.

    Dude it’s incredible. It sprays and lays unlike any can of spray paint i’ve ever used. The black is more of a flat finish I know. But this gray is just beautiful. I also recommend NO primer underneath. Were you Trying it out on your new WARFAB bumper? Def need to try out the gray. Also - a cool trick I learned from reading the can directions is to turn can upside down and spray for 2-3 seconds when done to let the clear aerosol declog the nozzle so it isn’t full of paint next use

    No I was painting a friend's bumper. I heard from others that the Steel-It black (and only the black) in the can is just terrible for sputtering even when following the directions ... and I agree 100%. I tried all the tricks and made sure to shake it plenty but it still randomly sputtered.

    Left some of my truck out at Potts Mountain but at least it gives me a Sunday project. It will buff out... I think. 6CC00952-3461-4FEE-AEB6-5CAE0138D718.jpg

    It was on that obstacle at the beginning that has an off camber turn to the left. It was just so slick. I made it nearly all the way around up high but it just took me right into that tree root that sticks out.

    Got home late Friday night to a stack of goodies I ordered while on the road. Managed to get the TRD Faux grill and LED reverse lights installed in between the storms yesterday. Today I pulled out the good ole Harbor Freight spatter gun and welded (i use that term loosely) some light tabs onto the new front bumper. Got the bumper primed, but I'm on a plane first thing in the morning, so I'll have to wait until I get back from PA in two weeks to get it painted and possibly installed.

    I ordered the center console cover someone else linked here previously. When it got here it was not at all the right size, it was cut way too long, the sides were boxed out, it was not shaped for the latch, etc. So after some time with a very sharp knife, some 3M Super 77, and after removing the center console pad (for a tighter fit and just in case I wanted to go back to OEM), I have this critter. It's not the absolute best looking thing, it has two areas where I couldn't get it to stretch down, so it doesn't look OEM, but it's way better than when it arrived.

    Not a damn thing.
    I'm afraid of messing something else up like yesterday.
    I won't be doing anything until my T-harness shows up, probably Tuesday.
