I got the fenders and storage bins all finished. All it needs is seam sealer in the bins and some light filler on the outside. The good thing about Rustoleum flat black is you don't need to blend paints.

Tomorrow I'll do some redneck body straightening, otherwise known as the combination of sheetmetal, a tractor, come-along and a High-lift prior to applying any body filler.

I also included a nice photo of my GPW at the Hammers.

I must be a glutton for punishment, as I decided to undo the damage from Winch Hill 1 5 years ago (post #84) and Sun Bonnet Pass last month. The GPW now looks fresh again, and lower.

I primed it and it's ready for paint, but it got dark and I decided I was finished with photography for the day. Tomorrow, on-goes the Rustoleum Flat Black.

I took it out in its new lower and meaner form and it's ready to party.

Getting 44's stuck brings the suck. Seriously once it's sunk it's pretty hard to unsink it.

Unfortunately, I think it's going to be a while.

All this body work I've done has made me realize that my sliders don't stick out far enough. And my 44's hit them because of Obama.

More recently, I slipped off my slider in the snow and it hurt. Plus no one in the Willy's forum believes I have health insurance, and I've been known to wheel on injured feet. But I digress.

I added 2x2 .188 wall tubing to the side and gave it another 4" on each side.

My GPW is now 3 inches shorter, 8 inches wider and probably 35 lbs heavier. Incidentally, I noticed a similar occurrence in the dating scene when I moved from Chico to San Jose.

I really like my side rock sliders/steps. I can pivot around rocks and have no worries. The only thing I have not done yet that I need to is weld a small piece of expanded metal, where I step to get in the rig. If it is wet, it can be very slippery.

Looks great! How about a picture from underneath. I think I would like to copy your sliders.

Hillary Haters or Comey Crushers are also perfectly acceptable substitutes.

Warn hubs are remnants of Obama. Plus Amazon was running a hell of a sale on Yukon hubs. I was bored.

Warn will laugh at you if you want to buy new parts for them, and they tend to need a safe space when confronted with rocks.

Off they went, and on went Yukon hubs. This is what minor contact with rocks does to the dial of a Warn.
