Diff cover paint

I took advantage of the 4x4RockShop cyber monday deal on Riddler diff covers. Now I need to paint them.. what type of paint should I look for and from where? POR-15? Do I paint the inside too?



also is the Ultra Black OEM Hi-Temp RTV Silicone Gasket Maker good enough to install these or do I need to get a Lubelocker?

I got the same one for my d44

any paint should be fine, i used rustoleum industrial spray paint when i painted my front diff cover and for the back cover ill just use whatever type of paint i have laying around. you dont need to paint the inside. and the rtv that they sent in the box is good enough, just put about a 1/4" bead all the way around.

I've got RockCrushers on my 44's. I used Rustoleum Primer & Paint and I keep a can around for touch up. I am a believer in the LubeLockers. I have had my covers off numerous times with no leaks of any kind.

Jase, I like to use a product called "The Right Stuff" for sealing my diffs. It does cost a little more, but damn does it hold well. It will even hold is there is oil residue present.

Let me know if you need any help painting those, I will come on over and help you out..

I think when I get mine, I am going to paint them with the spray on truck bed liner paint.

Damn, I should have taken advantage of that deal.

I have a SOLID cover (previously known as ROCKCRUSHER) it came with a hammered look paint on it already, so I went and bought some grey hammered spray for touch up. yours looks like it already has a coat of something on it you sure you need to paint it?

Is this the right product by Permatex?

or any of their other products?

I dont care about the cost if I can do it and forget about it for a while. If I keep running through the deep mud & muck, I reserve the right to change that attitude.

I truly appreciate the offer and might take you up on it. Just dont expect a nice garage or anything fancy. These probably wont make it onto my current Rubi anyway.. stay tuned for more info

I'm not sure, but it doesnt seem like paint or powder coating... and, directly from 4x4RockShop.com: Covers come unpainted. Be sure to prime and paint them.
