So unfortunately after putting the rear bumper on and rock sliders i decided that the powder was too glossy

so i took them off AGAIN and took everything back to powder again this morning. im going to be able to work for poison spyder after this thing is done.

looking at a week turnaround so the waiting begins again...

FLHusker7 04-01-2013 04:04 PM

So i finally got everything back from powdercoat. thank god i took it all back and had it all powdered matte black. Everything went on pretty easy, front PSC brawler lite was a little bit of a PITA but nothing too bad. Enough rambling heres some pics

Looks good! I'm thinking about the PSC brawler lite front bumper, you said it was a PITA.....what was the problem?

Thanks

Um it wasnt a total PITA but getting to a few of the last nuts was hard. had to have a girl with little hands get them. I cant say enough though how quality PSC stuff really is and the staff there has great customer service. If I was going to do it again I would pick PSC again with no hesitation.

in other words, go for it! you wont regret it

I missed your latest update to this thread. Nice stuff man! :thumb:

I like the matte black much better also. You should think about relocating your license plate, I think it'd show off that sexy PSC rear bumper and even things out back there. Just a thought. And hit that shiny muffler with some black paint or replace it with a high tuck system.

Jeep's looking awesome. :cool:
