im going to leave them galvinized, just etch the top so the powder sticks. put i thought of puting some kind of bed liner on the bottom, but i wasnt sure how well it would work

I sprayed the bottom side of the inner fender on my truck with some Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating back in May/June. So far it is holding up very well and I like the look. I chose the Duplicolor because it is available in most auto parts stores and is pretty cheap at only $10ish/can. I'll be interested to see how it holds up through a winter but I can always re-do it for another $10!

I sprayed the underside of the fender wells on my 90 with black waxoyl. That looked nice.

this is where i have to admit i have a gearhead problem. i have done 2 60's ford trucks one grand torino gt and 2 jeeps. all have turned out nice but all were over budget . i biggest problem working on my rover build is exactly the same as all the rest of my projects. i have an obsession with every part being clean and new looking. i was hoping i wouldnt be this way with my rover. it has always kept me from enjoying my builds, but this time while i still obsess they same way i have found it much more enjoyable of a project. i even have accepted the fact some things arent just that certain way. i do admit the modular way a rover series or defender is made lends itself to placing a part in place then removing it then replacing it after a few more tweaks. the only thing i dont like so far is the dash not an easy fix when the parts are so hard to get. speaking of dash parts for a 95 nas, anybody have any for sale.

Mine are being powder-coated both inside and outside... I having it done in the two tone hammer finish black and silver... I also had all my skid plates and diff guard done the same... Before i get slammed I'm building this as a hobby like a Hot Rod...

It will most likely never hit any hard trails as I don't have the physical ability to go crawling anymore...

I also used the Duplicolour but used a gun, I also re-galvanized them beforehand and it's been solid.
