That's going to be nice .... I'm stoked to see it .... Hurry up already and get that thing on. I painted the jcr rear quarter panels with the dupi color truck bedliner and it came out really good. I did my rockers over 2 years ago and I was so surprised how well it held up. What were you thinking of finishing it in?

Just finished up the primer sealer, almost done.

3 coats of primer, 1 1/2 of sealer, finishing it in VHT Semi-Gloss Epoxy Paint. Same thing I used for my fender flares and lower body/doors.

Logan's Metal Products.


They're local and despite all the bad reviews from a few years ago I had a great experience with them.
