Those pieces used for the arms of the robot go on the end of the lock tumbler and insert into the lever to lock the doors, I don't have a picture at the moment but can take one tomorrow as I will be dismantling the hardware on my doors in preparation for high build primer. Unless someone else posts a pic before me.

Few more hours and I might have it done. Once the console is done. Back on the rotisserie I think

Has anyone ever modified the pedal area to make more leg room?

Back on the rotisserie to seal up underneath. <br/><br/>Im going to have it sprayed underneath with a linex type product. Was just wondering if anyone else has done the same and if so, did you do it before any body paint was done or after?

So you did that before final paint right? When you get to the paint part. Do you sand some of the liner down and overlap the paint on it a bit?

I still need to spray my high build primer and will mask off the bed liner so the paint will just overlap it about 1/4" or so. Will give it a bit of a scuff with 220 before the high build then go on from there.

Ok I think I might go that route as well. With the ez liner instead of linex. Be easier I think

Linex is good stuff but don't think you could do it yourself , would have to take it to them, it's sprayed on hot.
