I can't believe a shopping cart did that much damage.
if you push a shopping cart out of anger, as hard as you can....i'm not surprised.
I learned how to mount and balance tires at Acehaag's house.
super jelly he has his own mount/balance machine. i want one.
yeah I feel the same way. I know about rocks and chips and all that especially on 4x4 trucks that actually go to trails, but it just looks kind of half assed. just my opinion, and probably a bad one at that.
i understand, i sorta feel the same way...but it does provide a functional purpose. not like my truck is a mall crawler and get it done for "looks". though i dont "beat" on my trucks either. the Z i "use" its capabilities. when we go mudding you wont see me doing a doughnut. unless the throttle required is really low like normal driving or a tad higher.
i do want to repaint, and i will probably attempt this myself since my buddy has a gun and paints, so i can learn etc but i'd hate to paint then just destroy it going out into the trails. though i dont think mud caused these rock chips, i say gravel roads.
fresh wash today/flushed frame. pic of said damage. may just roll with it for a while until i get my plans together. maybe plastic dip? not sure how that will hold up
you can still damage them, and unless you do the inside too it will still rust, the only benefit is it doesnt scratch like paint... but in MY opinion looks way uglier than a couple little scratches...
not concerned about rust being we dont see any salt. that and i have a good habit of flushing the panels out to keep dirt buildup down. mostly i just want to prevent visible "dings"
ok, so some of you guys might remember when i bought my ingersoll rand compressor i polished the copper hardline from the compressor for shits n giggles.
well after using it a few cycles the copper turned purple, very deep purple. this was a surprise to me.
but after all this time, it has turned into a "chrome" finish.
