@clivehorridge thank you, it takes a bit of keeping clean and has its fair share of scratches, a good coat of polish and wax doesn't hide it's scars but protects the paintwork.
I've got a bit to sort at the back of the sill but will catch it before becomes an issue, the other side had to be plated where I'd damaged it and not realised!
Sounds like the wrap has done it's job protecting the paint.
Can you get them electro plated before powder coat? Problem with powder coat I've found is one bit of damage and it lets water In. My rock sliders peeled quite a lot so just painted them now.
Planning a coast to coast trip next year now with the same group but probably not with the bikes, good few days of lanes and camping away from it all, we've laned and off roaded together for about 15 years so a trusted group.
Yeah Gary, I feel the same about powder coat, but the trouble is, finding anyone here who can handle the size of these bars for electro plating is a non-starter.
Theres a guy who will sandblast them, but I’m looking for an acid dip big enough ATM, without much luck.
I‘m thinking paint this time instead, at least you can wire brush that and splash a bit of Genolite or equivalent at it...
It does make a change to see the old truck shiny again, I must admit
Must get some alcohol on the adhesive left behind on the paint under the wrap. Jeez it took some getting off, that’s a fact.
