    KBS Rust Seal is already a super-paint, no further painting is necessary. What will be needed is some "tooth" for the bedliner to adhere to...I normally use a green scotchbrite pad to scuff the surface, then wipe down, and shoot the bedliner.

    I use 3M 8308 Heavy Bodied Seam Sealer. A little pricey but it is bulletproof.

    KBS recommends their "special" thinner...I use Xylene. It is readily available at most Lowes or Home Depot stores and it seems to work fine. I started using Xylene when I took some courses in fiberglass construction techniques, we used it to thin polyurethane dries slowly and gives the paint time to flow out nicely.

    Got my tbird IRS installed and thought this a good time to install Bilstein shocks I bought from you. My gosh, now I am not the most skilled wrench, but I have not encountered the problems I am having just removing the KYB shocks I originally installed while building the truck, much less installing the larger tube Bilsteins. Are you guys dropping the control arm to accomplish this? I realize that with non gas filled shocks it was easy, but not ow. Any hints? Thanks, Joe.

    The Shockwaves that I used were some of the very early models, I believe that RideTech has some better ones out there now. I modified the FlatOut Engineering kit to accomodate the shockwaves...I think that you may be able to get some now that are small enough in diameter to work right out of the box.
    As for the R&P...the biggest problem is the hydraulic lines for the power steering. Take a look at Paul Newman Creations website, he is located in Paso Robles and has a really sweet rear tie rod setup (you need this if you intend to drop the rearend past stock height) and he has done some work on the R&P to rotate the body around which gets the fittings out of the way. Good Luck...
