I've done it before and it's a PITA when it's in a thick spot Refer to number 2 for the start of a peeling spot. That area is usually 1/8" thick.
4. Doing it right takes literally an extra 3 minutes
When I spray mine, I plan to remove everything maybe even the rollbar.
Small correction- The slider base isn't the disposable part, the sliders are. We've seen too many tube sliders and others that were ruined playing in the big rocks plus a lot of folks like their rigs to look good when they aren't out playing.
We designed the sliders to be able to be flipped side for side and be able to be replaced without having to preload anything once the slider base was installed correctly.
That gives you the option of having a set of nice ones without rock burrs and scratches that you can easily swap out for the working versions without having to remove the whole mess.
I set a row of nutserts in the aluminum base so I can zip out the lower row of screws with a small impact and do a change in a few minutes.
