Sliders
« on: Nov 21, 2020, 05:39:26 AM »
I guess this question fits in this thread.  Sliders...

I ordered a set for my truck(CBI).  I requested bare metal.  Who here used what paint product?

I thought light sanding, prime and paint.  Grit?  Paint? I like Rust-Oleum.

I have used both rustoleum and DIY truck bed coatings in the past.  Of the two, I prefer rustoleum.

I did score 600.00 off shipping, but I'll be waiting until January to get them.  CBI wanted 900.00 to ship!  They were nice enough to refer me to an offroad shop on an outer island.  I hope they come as I specified.  It's a long wait.

I have not learned how to weld.  But I'm going to by one soon.  Thinking Miller MVP.

  I can use most tools but that is a skill I'm lacking in.

Next move..rear bumper.  After I learn.

$600 shipping :shocking:, was that for air frieght or by boat?   

For the shipping cost alone you could buy a entry level quality 110vlt welder, think my first Hobart ran about $500.
 Cyberweld has the 125 currently on sale for under $350, which is what I used to build everything from sliders to flatbeds, until a bought my MVP210 a few years ago.

Some of these stores on the mainland have only one shipping method and will not compromise.  Actual shipping quote...$900.00!

The place I ordered from gets regular shipments in container.  That's where I saved.

I am going to buy a welder and learn how to use it.  Then maybe a tube bender.  Have to buy the welder here or face the same issue with shipping$.

shoot for that price I could have built them for you and put them in a checked bag and come to help you install them...lol

I remember when I lived in Alaska the shipping being bad, but not that bad.

on another note don't discount some of the other off brand welders. I had a everlasting TIG welder that served me very well. I even built my first truck with a harbor freight welder and their offerings have come a long ways since 15 years ago.  I mean you don't need a Ferrari to learn to drive right? buy the Ferrari once you know how to drive or you won't appreciate it.

I have used rustoleum on a lot of parts only to have it chip off after some abuse. Zippo got me using Dupli-color engine enamel and I will never use anything else on parts that take a beating. The stuff is way tougher than most anything else in a spray can. It doesn’t come in as many colors as rustoleum but there are enough options. It also is a bit more money, but worth it.
