    Did you paint over the bed liner instead of tinting it for colour match? I was hoping to do a similar technique on one of my own projects after Al posted a ford up. Wasn't sure which would be better?

    I sprayed a epoxy/sealer over the bed liner and sprayed a couple coats of color on it. Want it to be exact same color as the rest of the caddy.

    Nobug, raptor tintable bed liner will be the same colour... you add base coat to the polyurethane mix and spray it on. If you chip it...it will be the base colour.

    Interesting never heard of raptor.

    Just found another product and picked some up, it is called Crystal Clear 2K Chip Guard just as the name states it is a 2 part clear chip guard that can be buffed, thinking on using it on the rockers and front apron.

    Picked up a spot welder, works awesome, wish I had picked one up years ago.....



    Trying it out for the first time, playing with the settings.



    what they look like from the back.



    Starting 4 link build, had some brackets custom made, test fit is amazing, no gaps at all, waiting on some other parts to show up.
    I will be strengthening the rear channels and running coilovers on the rear.



    Getting some work done on engine bay, prepping for paint.

    Will be a panhard bar, that is partly the reason for the test fit, get some measurements for the bar and shocks/coilovers.
