I’ve heard of the Jeep part swap and also heard some shops won’t perform alignments on them due to a “possibility” it can get jammed or hung up somehow causing a safety concern so they don’t want the liability? Maybe I read it somewhere here, need to look into it further myself though. $15 is definitely better than the $175 from Borgeson, thanks for bringing it up!
That looks fantastic!!!After getting everything straight and presentable I was able to put some paint on the inner fenders and core support this afternoon. Took the time this week to clean up around the top edges of core support where it’s pinch welded together, straightened the edges then ground them all all even where fitment during welding process was sloppy. Then straightened a few dings that show on fender wells and had everything prepped.
Sandblasted underside of fender wells and sprayed with, wait for it……Harbor Freight Iron Armor rubberized coating. Like $6.99 a can I bought one to try and it looked great to me so finished ‘em up and may use in the rear as well.
Paint was Excel brand Hot Rod Black satin finish. Quart of color and pint of activator just under $100 total. Pictures look more shiny, but it’s under 6 fluorescent lights.
First time I’ve shot this paint so once I had my spray gun -Sharpe T-1 Titanium HVLP- I found best layout with about 12psi at the gun and you need to lay it on pretty wet to flow out nice. A “light” coat would be a little grainy so I increased material flow and got decent results.
