Try sticking the plate to the bed with some quality double sided sticky tape. That will give you a really clean install look, and its not very thick. I love that diamond plate though, could you tell us where to find some? :-p

I don't think I am going to diamond plate the side walls of the bed. I like the off set of black and bling right now.

Jason, This is what I was doing (trying to) when you were aimimg me last night. I need to change my aim id!

Well, crap! Not sure why I didn't think of that.

I bought the tow pintle for the Scorpion from Ric.

Nice guy.

Thanks. You know this thing will not look this good for long.

Here's the chassis with 2 coats of primer and 1 coat of flat black. Need to spray one more coat on then it's assembly time.

After painting the chassis I was wondering if I should. Everything else is going to be painted black, I am wondering if that would be too much.

As you mentioned before, it won't look like that for long.

I think you should try to make the diff cover natural metal color and the rest black. I think it'd break up the all black and look really scale.

Yeah, that is another reason why I don't want to paint the axles. I think it would look stupid with the tops of them nicely painted black and the bottoms all F'ed up.

I know! I thought it looked sweet like that but I thought it would look goofy with a brand new flatbed.

Well you could of sprayed the bed then hit it lightly with a multi speed dremel on slow with a wire brush for the same effect.

That I could. But I think I will run it like this for a while and beat it on the rocks then I can always revert back to the primered/sanded look.
