Chris, you need to get this truck finished! Drove past The Black Horse last night...will need to see your truck out front there in a few months.

For comparison, I wonder what the typical thickness is for a rhino lined truck bed?...


Josh,
Wishful thinking, but hopefully it will make it to MAR... ROAV at The Cove for sure.

The attractive linings are typically sprayed on up to a " thick on truck beds

Looks like the diffrence is 2mm or .080, I like the way it looks but I wonder if it cuts down on noise at all when applied that thin?

Perhaps Chris can confirm that at the point where he took his measurement, that the seatbox had 2 layers of aluminum. It looks like he has removed the boxes from the seatbox, which may result in his measurement only being 1 layer (?). If so the relevant comparison measurement would be 1.5mm

Not sure how much total noise reduction I can expect with a soft top...but point taken.

I plan to apply a slightly heaver coat for the front floor boards and rear tub floor to keep up with the heavier foot traffic, but not as thick as a typical bed liner (.25" or 6.35mm). From a looks perspective, floor boards are a little more forgiving than the seat box too, so I will likely go for a thickness in the range of 3 - 4 millimeters. Not too heavy, not too thin...but just right.

My overall rhino line goals in priority order:
1. Clean look
2. Durability
3. Sound deadening

Paul,
I did remove the battery box. I don't have my battery box with me, but correct me if I am wrong...when referring to the tab that my arrow points to, the battery box is not in play?... Did you take the measurement at the tab indicated in my pic?

So the comparison measurement is 1.5mm v 5.1mm i.e. 3.6mm (1/8") of rhino. 1/8" should be good enough to cut down on vibration of the panel but not absorb much sound.

Magic garage unveiled

Brought the seat frames back to life as well as treated them to new foam cushions and upholstery.

Sad to report, at this point, it doesn't seem like this project will be complete in time for MAR...but hopefully it will make it's debut at ROAV at The Cove.

Many of you may not know, but Randy, AKA TDI Guy, has been the mastermind behind this build all along.

While the project has progressed better and faster than I ever imagined, I believe more recently the pace has slowed ever so slightly, so that Randy's D90 can bask in glory at MAR, for one more year, before his envy kicks in.

Kidding.

Thank you Randy...If it were not for you, I am sure I would never have even had the courage to rotate my tires. You the man Randy!

Thanks Dale. Great to hear the motor is working out well.

Just picked up some stuff from galvy. Only missing one rear seat bracket from the galvy dip process...The bracket shouldn't be too difficult to replace.

Progress will be picking up shortly with everything coming back from galvy and paint. Will post more pics shortly.

Looks great!!

+1 Where did you get the paint work done? Did they have to do any body work or was it a re-spray?

Thanks.

Had the paint work done by a family friend. Body work wasn't needed...all the panels were in excellent shape.

Does he do work on the side or own a shop.

I am doing a frame up this winter and will need to get the truck re-sprayed somewhere...

Much more progress:
1. Aligned tub with bulkhead
2. fastened down the Seat box
3. Installed battery in battery box
4. Completed fuel assembly
5. Installed rear door
6. Restored and installed rear ID plate
7. ERC LED lights installed...these are worth every penny.

Ran into a glitch with galvanizing hood support bracket...When it came back from galvy, it was all jangeld at one corner. It must have gotten hung from this corner and the weight of the bracket must have warped the bracket. It's not worth repairing the support bracket as the hood needs considerable repair too. As a result, looks like I am in the market for a new hood...
