I was checking that stuff out at Pep Boys awhile back. Was thinking about using it on the floor of my jeep.

I'll let my buddy know about this stuff and how you said it was a good product.

It's possible to scrape it off with something heavy and sharp edged in the bed of the truck,but I don't think walking on it would rub it off.its pretty tough.

More fab work Sunday and tonight after work.










Didn't like those cheesy plates these u bolts came with so we made some out of flat stock and formed them to fit inside the fender. Offers better support for these minimizer fenders.

I'm making some aluminum tread plates for the running boards. Darren is out back painting them satin black for now. These should look pretty sharp against that black paint. These were surprisingly easy to make to. I bought these dimple dies a year ago, first time using them.

Thanks.

Only painting the running boards, and fender hangers satin black. The tread plates will stay just like this.

Darren only got the fender hangers painted today. Got busy building a rack for his behind the cab tool box and then the wind started picking up.
