Tupperware?????? Tupperware???? Ack! It's good armor. There's holes and stuff in the door holding those in place, so you'd be doing some bondo work if you removed the cladding. Many have painted theirs, some used Krylon Tread and Grip, RhinoLiner, Herculiner, etc. The painted ones look sharp...especially when a grip product is used.

I think the general thought is to avoid the aluminum spacers on ebay. Go with the poly/rubber ones that you find from Kevin, DayStar, Rusty's etc. It seems to me that if aluminum was a good option you would see those guys selling them. However maybe someone has used these aluminum ones with good luck.

Yeah search for aluminum spacers on here and you'll find lots of people warning you to stay away from them. Especially for the same price, go with the safe bet and get some poly ones.

Do you value your ride??

If you do, you'll stay with the Teraflex budget boost. It's solid! And as for the tupperware, have some respect for the armor! If you wanna paint it. Go professional or take the time to do it right, it woul;d be best to remove it to paint it and then reattach with new clips/screws. Unless you can keep the overspray off the vehicle, otherwise
