I would sand it first to give it something to hold to

Sand just don't do it really tough n deep make sure u do it lightly just enough so the paint bites in

I got a quote from Line-X and I told him to shove it! He wanted almost $700...and that was with me bringing it to him with just the driver seat in it.

So I decided to do it myself. I used the U Pol Raptor kit. Comes with 4qt of liner, hardener and the gun for $120. Also, POR15 makes pretty much the same product called POW-R-Liner or something like that. I had a demo of it at work about 2 weeks ago and it seems the same as the U Pol brand. Comes as the same kit for about $125 or so.

The little LED flashlight is perfect and stupid bright so instead of trying to find a better looking light I think i will just paint the blue, black.
Wow! I've been wondering what the hell that thing was! A hook.... I know what you put there, but what was it designed for? It seems an odd place to put a hook....

I bought a real cheap smittybilt flashlight holder for 10 bucks off eBay that straps to the roll bar. Then I cut it in half. I used the half that had the strap that goes over the head of the flashlight and put my new Nebo Redline LED flashlight in it. I used the other half to put my pocket knife w/ a the seatbelt cutter on it and strapped them on the rollbar above my window.

I did herculiner. It's a little too rough and clunky. Line-x is awesome my friend has it in his truck bed. It's definitely the way to go. It's expensive. But you definitely is worth it

You definitely have to post pics of that when you're done! That sounds freakin awesome!

I was going to put LED fog lights in place of my turn signals... if one of them didn't start smoking! But I put them in my old Jeep to see what they would look like, before I returned them. HERE is the link to where I got them.

I chipped off as much as a I could and then sanded the mirrors down as much as I could with 240 grit. I also did my grill inserts and head light bezels the same way. The inserts were actually plastic, but everything else was metal.
