Thanks, I'll try that tonight..

Forgot to add, spray it with some water while using the colgate... the tootpaste is too thick all by itself. Most of the time I can just rub the heck out of it with my fingertips and it works... makes my fingers all nice and minty too

I have also used toothpaste on windows/windshields with light scratches and it does work.

Dug out and replaced all the seam sealer, sprayed over the liner in the tub and cleaned up the fire wall, its now ready for paint this Tuesday.

Went by a local custom bed liner place today, got a quote for 250 on the fenders, rock sliders and tube doors. I'm going to run these by my local powder coating place....I'm thinking they can match that if not beat ...

Finishing up the last details before paint, can't believe all the things I missed, got the shaker intake cut out, por-15'ed the body facing bolt on stuff that I powder coated earlier. Primed and used 5 coats and one clear on the front fender wells and winch plate using Rustoluem's truck bed liner. I'm curious to see how this stuff holds up.... I might do the fenders and rock sliders with this....

Also restored the T-case shifter and hood latches with wrinkle powder coating.

So it's all over but the crying....(unless your a Spurs fan!) The prep work is done, the sweating is done, the beer has been drunk. Everything is loaded for paint tomorrow. The final choice for color is Jeep Flame Red.







There will be color the next time I post!!!! (Or at least progress towards it)

Awesome! Can't wait to see it. Red will look great.
How long will the paint shop have it for?
Cheers.
