Any kind of spray paint will come off easy. Even with etch primer. Its easy to touch up when its not textured. I wish i would have used the valspar stuff tho. If you use the hardener and spray it not only does it look like a regular paint finish or powdercoat but if it sits about 4 days you can hammer on it with out it chipping or flaking.
Get the paint and im down...Im having the garage done for 220 and have a new compressor on the way. We can just throw some plastic on the floor and shoot em. I have a gun to use for them. Maybe you can get coldryno to go in on it with you and we can just spend a day doing it all. Palmers and cancer sticks are helpful to get work done
But ColdRhino isn't getting the answers to his question in his thread. You might want to call around to some local shops to get the quotes. Most here just rattle can the bumper so it's easy to touch up throughout the season when it get's scratched up.
the ease of touchups with a rattlecan paint job, in my opinion, is more of a maintenance thing than for ascetics. some of the gouges ive put in my armor or paint I have scraped off has started to rust deep within weeks. being able to grind down an area and dress it up again easily is worth the less overall quality of the paint job :2cents:
Sending out another feeler to see if anyone might be interested or knows a local shop that will do custom body work.
Basically I want to add some hood vents to my Taco.
Now because my Taco is my "nice" truck I want this to look good. So what I would settle for on my 88 won't cut the mustard...
Even though my 4Runner does not have LEDs the blinkers still act like crack heads. So today I did this:
Super easy, take out one resistor. I used a soldering iron but I bet it could be chopped out...
Alright, I guess it's time for a build thread.
GOAL: Rig capable of mild to moderate trails but maintaining it's usefullness for general camping and occasional errand running and trailer pulling.
So, no, I have no plans for SAS (at least not now :D) and it's not going to be a show rig but I am...
I know a few guys have it... Hows it holding up? Is the color fading at all? I'm thinking about grabbing some white for my bed but I'm scared it will yellow. Black is option b and would Be ok too. I like the texture I saw on the whale and Drews runner. The bed liner texture I saw on the site...
