I just used the Aerosal cans. My compressor situation is less than sufficient so running a gun was out of the question. I've tried the Duplicolor and other bedliner in a can and have not been impressed to say the least, came out more like undercoating. The Rustoleum has definitely been my favorite. They do sell it in a can so I'm sure you can use it in a gun, but I don't know the details.

Next question that arises for me in wiring harness. I'm not a wiring guru so making one from scratch is not really what I want to do. Very basic harness is what Im after with provisions from headlights, brake lights, hi/low beam, wipers, and possibly blinkers. 15 Circuit would be a bout perfect I'm thinking. What is everyone running in their buggyish rigs? Obviously don't what to spend a fortune. Thanks in advance.

I looked around quite a bit to replace the entire harness in my TJ. After a LS swap Iím only using 8-10 circuits and I bet your situation is similar. I am removing extra harness wires at this point but if I was starting from scratch Iíd look at the Switch Pros modules and then picking up a couple spools of good wire and Deutsch connectors. No fuses or crazy relay systems, you can manage the system from your phone if you want to, and itís all circuit breakers and nice simple panel mounts. Lots of buggy guys going to this setup. Itís my backup plan if I donít like the current harness and it can do momentary, flashing, or constant switching for turn signals and horns.

Good to know! My Fitech kit has the running side taken care of and I'm just needed the chassis harness more of less. I have pretty much zero experience wiring so I just don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I think I just need to start researching diagrams and what not to wrap my head around it.

I ended up with a 21 circuit EZ wiring harness that has been in a box for ten years. Column is a typical Saginaw Jeep model. I am not a wiring expert at all.

Young people-inexperienced people- with a little help from me, wired the whole vehicle and with very few issues everything worked the first time. My build is more street-based than yours, but I still only used about half the circuits.

I used what I had, but I'd want less rather than more circuits. Also, every single wire is labeled clearly and labeled quite often actually.

It wasn't hard at all. Honestly, no offense to Painless or whatever, but my kit was pretty cheap and I found no issues with it at all. I'd buy it again in a second.

Goatbuilt sells essentially the same tabs with their chassis, or at least with the one a buddy of mine just built. I copied the idea and drew them up and cust them at work on the plas table. I'll be using carriage bolts to secure the skid panels.

about 10 times now, plugs into the jeep column. Does everything you would expect it to do. Comes with all the ends and i like the mini fuse block.

Im putting the 22 circuit harness in a 1964 Mack with a positive ground today. my second job is at a resto shop as "The wiring Guy" i've used most if not all of the aftermarket harnesses. If you had a Ford i would advise Centech i can completely wire a 60's bronco in about 6 hrs now with those

I'm loving this build. Super clean fab work and beautiful welding. Inspiring for sure.

Out of curiosity, where do you source your materials from? I buy from Interwest Metals and am unaware of anywhere else.

12 circuit EZ Wire is what I've used. Same wire type Painless uses and each wire is labeled every 6".

I buy all my stuff through work and we get our stuff from EMJ.

I apologize for pretty much dropping off the face of the earth... I was at a mad scramble to get it done for an annual run with the group of guys I run with at the end of September, then it flowed directly into hunting season. I've pretty much got the rig together, but have yet to get it on dirt. Minor issues with getting it to shift, fans coming on, still dialing in brakes, PS pump/pulley issues, steering, etc. all have been little gremlins... Hoping to get all the little shit ironed out very soon and get it out in the woods!

Here's how it sits as of today.

I'll update the build pic portion hopefully this week.

Are you planing to paint the axles, or do you have some sort of clear on them? A rust colored patina would clash with the rest of the rig.

Must be a good feeling to be down to sorting the little shit. Bravo!
