    I'm goning to be putting in my S/F 14 here soon. My question is, what paint should I use to paint it. I'm above using just spray paint from a can. I want something to hold up. I read somewhere before where somebody had installed a disc kit on a Scout. I just don't remember what he used.

    Not sure on what paint to use. <-thought I'd through that in there.

    I just wanted to say
    GAWD Corey. I'm glad you're finally gonna be able to get that thing in your rig. You've been working on that project for a LONG time. We're talking since way back on the old board.

    Good luck man,
    Kyle

    Use POR-15... it maybe expensive but it really works well

    The situation with the delay on the s/f is I've been wanting to upgrade the perches into something like dep's and I have finally given up on that idea. It going to be stock for me the way it looks. Plus factor in having to get the axles milled (a little known factor about some of TSM's kits). I was trying to do the job correctly the first time, well it looks like it will have to be recompleted at a later date to be done properly...

    Disclamer... Kids, don't do this at home...
