Looks really Nice! But I didn't see a paint can on the bench, and don't think you said what you used before on the truck(?). One part or 2?

Busy-bodies want to know.

Cheers - Jim

Yep, it's the stuff I pictured a few pages back - KBS coating. It's held up very well against salt and four wheeling on my FJ40. I like it better then powder coating because it can be touched up - or like this time, I still need to weld the cage to the frame; but to do that, I need to have the body attached to the frame - so I'll grind through the coating to weld then repaint the attachment point.

It's only 1 part if you don't need UV protection. That said, from a bare frame, you etch the steel, then spray on the KBS protectant coating. The next layer is either paint or black top... but since all of this is going to be inches off the ground - I'm not going to bother.

Hey - Thanks.

That sounds a lot like the POR-15 application process - but adds the etch. Same-same regarding a UV cover etc.

Thanks!

Cheers - Jim

it is, but I'm not a fan of POR15 - it's barely better then equipment paint

time to add parts

if you're ever replacing C5 or C6 upper control arms.... the long slot goes to the front


clean, even


the center of gravity at that moment


missed squeezing through by one alternator width



almost a complete frame - with not one bolt tightened (outside of the front cradle
