I finally got the Monstaliner ordered. Unfortunately, the big compressor is in storage and I'm not sure if I want to try spraying it with the little compressor.....also ordered the Schutz gun along with the liner.
I think I will be waiting until the new house is done (and weather cools off) to do the job.

I do look forward to finally having the interior coated and clean looking.

You can borrow my compressor if you need to.

Thanks! My small compressor is an 8 gallon that actually moves pretty good air with its 2hp motor. I used it to spray my shed and it kept up pretty well. I know my 60 gallon would be a bit more consistent though.
I'm really just not sure if I want to tear into this while at my mo-in-law's.

We're building in Cross Creek Ranch.

I have decided to give the Metalcloak Duroflex joints a shot for my control arms. I am starting with the rear uppers first. I will do the rear lowers next.

What I ordered:

Ruff Stuff
DOM tubing - 1.75" OD x .25" wall - 1.25" ID
Tube adapters - 7/8" x 1.25"

Metal Cloak
Fixed End x2 - 2" OD x 2" W Duroflex Joint, 2 1/4" Housing

I still need to order the threaded joint ends, but I can get the tube cut to length, tube insert welded in, and tube for fixed end welded on by the guys in the shop in the meantime.

It actually does come out a little cheaper to buy their CA ready to go, but this route allows me to space out the expense...those joints are not cheap!!! (as much as $10-$20 more than Currie JJs)
Additionally, I am getting a stronger control arm than they offer; might not be necessary, but whatev.

It was Friday night, lift night.

Decided since there was a nice breeze and the temperature dropped down to the low 90s, I would install the BDS 2" coils and N2.0 shocks I've had sitting, waiting to be installed for several months.

Started mounting the Genright mini-boatside rockers today. I would've gladly finished the first side, but I can't find me 11/32" drill bit for the rivnuts....and it's like 135* outside.

Once you get past banging the ever-livin' stuff out of your perfectly good rockers, the install appears to be a breeze. When it is all bolted up, I will mark the rear of the guard and trim off the excess.....they come long enough to accommodate a stretch.

With these installed, it will make building the front fenders a bit easier since we will know how to trim them to clear the bend in the rocker, from the start.

Since I have the tubes on the rocker guards, it is getting me thinking about adding some to the rocker armor as rub rails.

Thanks guys!! I REALLY like them.
My wife asked me at dinner tonight....so, when does the powdercoating happen???

She also talked about how sad my Jeep looked with the small tires. The plan is working!
