Sliders

Post by MudRaider on 9/28/2011, 9:47 am

After hitting the rocker the last couple trips out, decided to make up some sliders. Finished grinding and sanding them last night, will be painting today so I can put them on this weekend. ...looking at the pics I gotta clean up the mess in the garage first. probly between coats.

That's what I'm talking about. Undercoated. What the heck, bunch of cans available, plus I'll be banging them on things. Makes it easy to touch up.This pic makes it look like my trailer is a serious off-roader.

Painted top and bottom now. I think I'll let them sit til Friday then put them on then. i'm really happy with how they turned out. I salvaged the rounded tubes from some VW Baja Bug nerf bars, the length was just right to provide s nice kick out, and a handy step for people to get in.

On and dirty. Didn't have to use them behind Lowes, but they were there if I'd of needed too! Shade kind of hides this one. The other side wasn't shaded.
