Used Quikcrete two part epoxy floor kit from Lowes.

Epoxy Garage Floor Coating | QUIKRETEŽ Coatings

Took 2 kits due to wide garage.

First I used two gallons of muriatic acid on the floor to strip and etch it. Two gallons diluted over about 10 applications, some straight for oil stains and thick sealed areas.

Then used kit as instructed.

Holding up great.

New dash colors!



The dash cover, wheel, and associated interior all used to be this color...even the rear seat...(which will soon be black also). Here is what the old dirty color was and what it is now with Duplicolor!!!

Today...all day... fabricated the tunnel cover plate. Test fit was accomplished as seen below. After pics it was disassembled and painted. When I do the complete tub with herculiner, the top of the plate will be done and the bezels will be silver painted.

Ya, getting the driveline to a shop to take care of the front. The rear will be a Tom Woods I think.

Here are some of the lates photos.



This one shows the sway bar painted and installed with new prothane bushings. Also, have a Rough Country quick disconnect kit installed. As you can see, the power steering hoses are finally attached.

I was lucky enough to have extra asphalt material for splash guards, so I fashioned an extension kit for each side. I also have a better picture here of the disconnect kit.



I also did some neatening up of the reservoir tanks and caps. My old tank was bad, so I got a new dual washer tank and a new cap. I did some cleaning and painting of the better cap and the coolant tank too.





Also, the Smittybilt XRC8 winch and Hi-Lift came today!!!!!

argh....where is the best HiLift mounting location.....uggh...I like the hood mount and can make it easy, but I also like the rear tire carrier mount option....

Problem is I have the smitty classic rear with tire carrier...and I don't know yet what it will look like totally done and ready to go, so i am undecided. Any one have this and can elaborate?
