    How to match Ruby Red with powder coat

    Didn't know where to post this exactly but I thought this might be helpful info. If you want to match Ruby Red with powder coat, Use Prismatic Powders "Toreador Red" as your base. Top coat that with "Lollypop Red" and then use "Clear Vision" for a final clear coat. Someone helped me figure this...

    That helps a lot! Thanks! I was wondering what thread that was!

    GEN 1 Shock Rebuild Tutorial?

    Is there a tutorial that everyone generally agrees is the 'best' in regard to rebuilding Gen 1 Fox Shocks? I've seen a bunch but figured it was worth asking in the spirit of 'I can't know what I don't know'. In the sense that I have no way of knowing if what I've seen so far has failed to...

    GEN 1 Transmission pan drain plug how to.

    Believe me, I know what you're dealing with. I had to upgrade everything to be able to coat stuff. Compressor and all. It takes a beast to push a powerful sand blaster. I STILL need to clean out my barn more too. Haha

    GEN 1 Transmission pan drain plug how to.

    I think you can find them even cheaper than that tbh. I was tempted but I didn't like the designs. It's not even a big deal but the ones with the plug have the plug hole elevated from the bottom of the pan a little which (to my OCD brain) is a spot for crud to collect and not come out. The way...

    GEN 1 Transmission pan drain plug how to.

    I'm going to install a drain plug in to my transmission pan (weld in a ****) and powder coat it before putting it back together. I was thinking about a how-to write up but figured I ask if it would even be of interest first. Anyone want me to do a step by step write up with pics or video? The...

    In production for 2 months is this normal?

    Getting a factory bedliner? If so, it may be causing the hold up. My friend just ran in to that. He canceled the bedliner and it got built. They allowed the delete because it's a major issue right now. Ask your dealership what's going on and if that's the cause, don't let them tell you there's...

    6.2L spark plug change - tips and tricks

    I never heard a reason why it was supposedly so unique. Just that it is and to make sure you have someone who knows what they're doing do it. That never made much sense to me. Thanks!

    6.2L spark plug change - tips and tricks

    I've read that changing the plugs on a 6.2 is something only a dealer or professional mechanic who knows the procedure should attempt because it's very easy to destroy the engine if you do it wrong. I don't get it. Is there anything to that concern or is it just a difficult job? Seems like...

    Creaks, squeaks, clunks and pops

    On this topic... I thought it was worth mentioning that Cerakote has a friction coefficient similar to Teflon. It may be helpful future knowledge.

    Cleaning engine

    Anyone here used the Waxoyl engine bay coating? (Interested in any feedback on Waxoyl or their Hardwax as well.)

    Hello all. Just saying hi.

    You'll love those wipes. Just make sure whatever you use them on is clean first.

    Iowa Raptor hits protestors. You here?

    If I had to give 1 reason why I like this forum, it's all summed up in this thread. Lol. This is how to handle these people. Slow enough not to damage the bumper. Wise. Although fast has my total support as well.

    GEN 1 Fox Shocks Rebuild

    I'm thinking buying new ones and selling the old ones (or keeping and sending to Fox for a rebuild) is the better option. Sounds like it's just as expensive to do the exchange in the end but you have rebuilt shocks rather than new. Idk. But the exchange program lost its luster after reading all...

    Cleaning Skid Plate

    Not sold on doing that tbh. I've read about it but the argument against doing that seems stronger imo. What's the best reason to do so? Genuinely asking your opinion.

    Prove it. Haha. (It's how I bought it. Still under a month old, for me. Changes are imminent in time.)

    At home DIY ceramic coating...save some cash!

    Question on large panels like the bed sides... is it OK to do small sections at a time and overlap or is it bad to let one section of a panel dry/set up before you do the rest? Or am I just overthinking something that won't really be an issue? (Now I'm thinking I should also practice on my...

    At home DIY ceramic coating...save some cash!

    Thanks! I've yet to find anything from them I didn't like but ceramic coating makes me a little nervous. A ton of work if it goes right, too much work to fix if not. Haha.
