    I didn't trust that thin lip. There's a lot of pressure in those struts.


    Edit: Yup... PDF says to mount it on the solid lower surface.

    Thanks! I am pretty impressed with this paint. Once it gets close to empty, you're better off switching cans. Don't want it to sputter during a final coat. Also don't start and stop over the piece. Long sweeping strokes to avoid splatter/spots.
    I sent you a PM SR5808.

    If you don't draw blood, you're doing it wrong!
    Did my 30k tune-up today:

    - Cleaned the AFE intake
    - New spark plugs
    - Oil Change/Filter
    - Rotated the tires, re-torqued everything
    - Cleaned the brake pads/rotors
    - Cleaned the sh*t out of intake tube, MAF, throttle body
    - Greased all zerk fittings
    - Cleaned the cabin filter
    - Measured out my mid-skid to be built tomorrow

    My spark plugs definitely needed replacing, and the whole intake/throttle body was long overdue for a cleaning. Judging by the condition of the plugs, and the deposits in my throttle body, my engine is running a little too rich (combination of my lead foot, CAI, and 3" cat-back???). I might talk to Gadget about a MAF calibrator to remedy it. ;)

    Tomorrow I'm gonna finish making my second skid (transmission skid) and help Chickenmunga with his FamousFab shackle flip. Should be another productive day :thumbsup:

    I would've used more than a layer of TPS Report cover sheets. Overspray is a bitch.

    They were PC originally, I just sprayed the tops of them to rough them up a bit. Didn't have to worry about overspray too much, and the bottoms are still only PC'd, so I think I'm good. Plus, it is only one coat, rocks don't really care what you spray your sliders with when the weight of the truck is on them. :cool:

    I think Doording is referring more to the paper protection on your truck. I also would have put more paper up higher.
    Looks great tho. I would also prefer bedliner to powder coat :)

    I know what he meant. Since I was only spraying where I step I didn't have to worry about the over spray getting any higher then that. Yeah PC'ing them was nice for a good base coat, but I kept slipping on the fuggers, so bedliner it was. Probably put on a second coat tomorrow.

    Yeah, I would have done the same if I was only spraying straight down.

    I wouldn't worry much. At that angle, any overspray that did make it on the paint would probably wash off anyway.

    Now that it's warming up, I'll bedliner mine again. I like using the extra cheezy plastic drop cloths that only cost a dollar or two. They're easy to drape over most of the truck and remove any overspray issues. That'll be a lot easier than unbolting them.

    I've got some 3M grip tape to put on the top where I put a heel on them getting in and out. I started scratching through the bedliner when rocks would lodge in my boot soles, and I think that tape will hold up better.

    I'm not worried, that's why i didn't cover her up too much. Def not able to unbolt them to paint em.... damn solder joints. :rolleyes:

    I tried out the grip tape as well, and found that it doesn't really hold up much better. For me, it just ended up ripping and tearing and turning into a bigger mess. If the bedliner doesn't work out for me I'm going to end up spraying some old school rubber/oil undercarriage shat on em. Tar on steroids.

    I may just go with "Chicks Dig Rust" and not worry about it.
