Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

I got the dually fender trim clean up, polished and painted.

I also got a rearview mirror out of a later model truck with compass and temp, that's one of the things i miss about having a newer truck.

It wasn't easy. Where they were pitted I started with 36 grit on a small block and sanded the majority of the pits out. Next i went to 80 grit, then once i had the 36 grit scratches out i switched to 80 grit on a 3" da, then to 180 and finally to 320. Next i polished them on a high speed buffer and then painted the black with semi gloss krylon.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Trim looks great, what kind of polish did you finish up with?

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Trim pieces looks awesome!
Have you heard of the stuff called shark skin? It's a clear coat type of product that's supposed to be really strong.
