    This might qualify as my "man space" pics also as this is eating up my 3 car garage.....

    THANKS!!!

    I just hit it with 180 grit before primer. I've heard this high build will fill in up to 80 grit scratches though, but I didn't feel like pushing it.

    Tire size for now is going to be stuck to 33's and a 4" lift until I can swap in some bigger axles and get off the 3.08's it is sitting on...

    EDIT* The primer goes on 1.5 - 2 mils thick per coat (3 times as thick as paint) with 2 - 4 coats recomended.

    Got that all done on the Saturday after you were here!

    Did you get that alternator checked out?
