Truck Pics of work done so far.

Here are some pictures of the work I have done so far and just some general pics of my truck. So far I have undercoated the rear and front RH sides, still have the LH side to go and I have a pic of what it looks like now. I have installed new 6" springs in the back, along with new shocks (thanks to shorts for the great deal on them) [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. Still have plans to install new bushings in the front end as well as replace some worn out parts and have a few of the brackets powered coated. I did have my nerf bars blasted down and powered coated. I stripped all the clear coat off the wheel, but still have to polish them up. They look a ton better already. I also plan on doing away with the ABS and still have to install a new tranny. So far I have plans to buy one for TCI when I get some cash saved up. Hope you enjoy the pics. I will be adding more from time to time.

Re: Truck Pics of work done so far.

What are you using to make the undercarriage look so "New". Is that regular spray paint (which I don't think it is), Por15 or something else?

Re: Truck Pics of work done so far.

I got it at wal-mart. It's in a spray can, its called truck bed liner / undercoat. It seems to be pretty tough stuff. I made sure wash and prep the frame really well, and primed it before i sprayed on the undercoat. If you need to the name of it just let me know. I think its the only stuff wal-mart had like this.

Re: Truck Pics of work done so far.

The name of it would be great. I would like to do this during this upcoming summer. I am thinking about buying a an air tool sander. Sand the frame of junk and grime and then apply this stuff to it. How much is each can? How many cans did you get?

Re: Truck Pics of work done so far.

If memory serves me right it is Duracoat brand....I use it for odds and ends. It makes a good alternative to spray paint....goes on thicker than paint but thinner than most bedliner products. It is like $4 or $5 a can...

It did peel off my garage trash can lid (small drum) after a few months, although I didn't prep it at all, I was just goofing around getting a feel for how it sprayed when I did it...

I did the underside of my old CJ years ago with black rustoleum....trick was I brushed it on instead of sprayed. It worked like a champ and held up way better than spray.
