Painted my PS diff cover
Got this things bare metal from PS, figure I would paint it myself and save 10 bucks. After 1 coat primer, 3 coats black and 2 coats white... My diff covers are drying and waiting for clear coat tomorrow. :D I also have my windshield decal and steering box skid installed, making a few modifications to my skid tomorrow then all will be done and Ill get a pic of the whole she-bang after I install the diff cover. Can't wait for the rest of my Poison Spyder stuff.

Let me know if the front doesnt clean the trak bar so I know not to get them

It's barely any deeper than the stock and I measured, it'll fit fine.

Ah sounds nice man! I considered a color, but decided to keep with the black on white, because I have everything else blacked out, and white on my shocks, KC light covers, and now the skid and diff cover.

if you find the pics post em up! :punk:

What exact process did you do for the 2 skids?
sand, prime, materials, sorry for all the question but I really want to this it sounds cheap and fun!!!!

Which two skids are you refering to? my steering box cover, It came powder coated. the diff cover, I used regular rustolem primer on it, after cleaning the surface with rubbing alcohal. three coats of that, then three coats of black which was krylon fusion, then painted the spyder with rustolem enamal with a brush, the brush on kind. then threa coats of clear coat, which was rustoleum again I think.

Answered my question thanks !!!
was the Krylon fusion a certain automotive type or metal ?

GoldenSahara00 07-28-2011 11:31 PM

it was krlylon fusion flat black. I am pretty sure the regular stuff, it works on everything including metal
