    Took it out camping on the California coast.

    Used it as a shield against the winds when we would sit at the table.

    My UpTop Overland Bravo rack finally arrived Saturday but due to rains and waiting on the stupid 3/4" punch I forgot to order and no one had it locally, I finally got it installed.

    I bought this rubber mat from Amazon: VersaTex Multi-Purpose Rubber Utility Mat for Indoor or Outdoor Use, For Entryway, Home Gym, Exercise Equipment, Garage, Under-Sink, Patio and Door Mat; 36" x 60", Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D1FXSW4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_DJ2GZXMRPW9EV8XQ04QC?_encoding=UTF8

    hopefully that works I’m on mobile...they have held up great so far and look so much better than stock.




    Do it! It’s super easy, taping and cutting the paper sheet together was the longest part lol. It prints off in 12 sheets unless you have access to a plotter

    I did the same to my exhaust. I tried taking as much of the rust off as possible. Sadly the rust is coming back...

    I kicked around the idea of BumperShellz but got all fixated on salt/water getting trapped under them and rusting everything, so I decided to dip the rear bumper.

    I used Hyperdip and finished with Dip Coat to seal it. The taping off part was tedious but it went OK once that was done. On the first pass with a new can I got a lot spattering and was at stage 1 of "why can't I just do a truck project that works the first time". Total panic. After that the can settled down and I was able to cover the spatters with the rest of the coats. 9 coats total then waited a day for it to cure and put on the Dip Coat which hardens it and gives some scratch protection. We'll see how it holds up.

    I also tried some Griot's Garage Black Satin Tire Coating. It was pretty shiny the first couple days because I think I put it on a little thick but it calmed down eventually to a nice satin.
