    Evo slider finish

    I just received my evo sliders. I'm trying to decide whether to have them powder coated or use Rustoleum bed liner coating. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Powder coating is pricy to just have it beat to Hell. Used satin finish on mine. And I've used the rustolium bed liner on my corners. Easier to touch up also.

    Bedliner spray or herculiner, if you thin it you can spray it through a paint gun. I've even added white to make a dark grey. Cheap and easy. Holds up well too.

    That's what I use. It's like $6 a can at Home Depot and works well with a self etching primer.

    $6 a can is better than $160 for powder coat. Thanks.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
