Skid plate - paint?

Postby Bow_Tied » Sat Feb 13, 2021 4:46 pm

Picked up some used skid plates for the X today. Thinking about getting them painted before install. Bedliner? POR15? other? What did you use/suggest?

POR15 works well. I'm currently stripping mine to apply POR and then some bedliner as a top coat. It'll get scraped off the first ride down concession, I'm sure lol.
I have too many cars.

Will you be keeping the skids on all year around?

Not necessarily. For winter they better have a good paint or coating. I take a couple off of mine to inspect and repaint if necessary.

POR15 says you should top coat it because UV rays will degrade it, I know they're under the truck but knowing my luck it'll still find a way to happen.
