Back in Black

Spent some time with the Tracker this past week and over the weekend. Sanded, washed, rinsed, dried and coated it with a gallon of rubberized truck bed liner. Still have a gallon to put on the interior but need to strip it and prep the thing.

The fenders still need to be trimmed a bit more for clearance at max artic with tires turned to full lock. Hopefully that'll get fixed this coming weekend as well.

There's a sun flare in the picture, makes the front half look a hair lighter than the rest of the truck.

Looks great... but from experience, it will never look that good again. It WILL however be rugged as hell. Your rig has really changed since you've started... I like your progression.

The clean and freshly done look... once the sun beats down on it and dirt settles it will never look the way it does in those pics. The sun will take the sheen off of it and the dirt will get imbedded into the liner (especially because it is rubber based). I think it will still look good and be rugged it'll just be a different shade of black.

On my sammy, I used herculiner... it faded from being outside in the sun. The dirt and mud (even when pressure washed and brushed) still left a trace. Perhaps "trace" isn't the right term but it seemed like it would be terribly difficult to make it look the way it did when I had just finnished it.

I am not knocking your job by any means. I love that look, actually I am herculining my newest rig (but painting it afterward).
