I guess you are billing a little more than minimum wage?


Really enjoying see this truck come together, I hope to see it at Uwharrie or the MAR.

Grover,
Didn't paint the engine side of the bulkhead for a few reasons:

1) show off the beautiful galvy
2) easier to paint in the future if you want to change colors
3) if the paint winds up not sticking to the galvy (in spite of all the efforts made to get a good bind), it won't be too terribly difficult to strip

I dont know about #2 and #3 is the excuse, but #1 is the real reason.

color changing interior to black

wow that pic makes the linex look faded, but its just super dusty at the moment. I think the interior cage/roll bar looks much better in black.

I used the SEM stuff to recolor my interior stuff Gray... It came out great as well. The stuff dries instantly too.

Truck looks great by the way.

If you clean it and perp it properly it will not chip but if you scratch it the old color will show.

I used the plastic prep spray first, that softens the plastic. Then the sand free spray. You spray a light coat of the black while the sand free is still wet, and as it flashes it draws the black into the softened plastic, I scratched the side window interior panels a couple small spots while installing them and the roll bar hoop (what a pain in the ass by the way ) and no gray showing through. ALthough I did do about 3 light coats on each part and then one medium coat to top it off. It is really amazing, I also used it on the gray panel in the middle of the dash black and with that done and the added Iron Goat console in the dash it looks so much better than a standard D90 dash.

The headliner pieces look great. Are they the originals?

Yes, but they have been recovered in a regular headliner material instead of the thin foam backed vinyl they used factory. I had some marine foam backed vinyl that I was trying to use, but the marine grade stuff was too thick for the compound curves in the alpine window area.
