Smile Ranger with fusion applied

Finally got off the puter long enough to start applying the Fusion plastic paint to the Ranger

I decided to tape off the painted services. I'll let you decide how I did with this task. Took my time and used the blue painters tape. Regular masking tape is not recommended since it didn't want to stick to the painted services.

Used a razor knife to slowly cut around the plastic, leaving the tape on the painted surfaces.




Use this to prep the surface before painting.



It appears to me that the Ranger will use 3 spray cans of Fusion to complete the job, applying 3 coats.

This is what I have completed so far, I have before and after pics for your viewing pleasure.

The Driver side complete,,,

Product noted that it takes 7 days to fully cure and will resist chipping, whatever that means.

Should hold up good for me, since I don't step on the steps getting in or out. lol

Running boards look great, got them finished yesterday.

I don't usually step on them to get into the Ranger, lol. Supposed to be fully cured after 7 days so I will see then.
