Should definitely be done by then. Hoping to have it back together by the end of this weekend if possible. I'm still trying to decide if I can make it to Big Dogs or not. You going to go the whole weekend and what trail ride do you plan on running?

It wouldn't be much of replica then would it? lol

I don't plan on rolling (who does?) or ever want to. However, I'm hoping this cage is built well enough to hold up to multiple flops. More importantly, save my life if I ever get into a really bad situation. It may look like overkill to some but I'd rather have overkill than "good enough"

Well im just going as a group for Big dogs but you are going to roll with us. We usually leave Richmond early in the am. So you would need to stay here or stay there for the night. Either way you need to come. May havbe to be ready for Crozet now because i just need a fix..

Rustoleum auto primer because it comes in bigger cans and Krylon satin black. I love the way Krylon sprays much more so than Rustoleum. Same thing I'v sprayed the bumpers, rockers, and miscellaneous stuff with and it's held up well.



I'm spraying U-pol Raptor right now. This stuff sprays so easy I have one more coat to spray in a few minutes and then I'll get some pics up later.

Thanks








Today's progress...

I'm really satisfied with Raptor Liner. Man is this stuff easy to spray and it really looks good too. Kicking myself for never doing it sooner or as soon as I bought my Jeep

After 1 coat




After 3 coats and unmasked






Installed my Savvy lower valance armor. About the only thing I feel comfortable installing today till everything gets a chance to cure a little.
