Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?
Living in the North and having nice things means an eternal battle with corrosion and prevention.
KINGS in the rear had a tough winter and were starting to corrode I opted for the following:
Siphon blasting pot
Flexible cutting board as a spray guard
Muffs - dang compressor is loud
5'er just in case I need to scrap a little
Media - glass beads
Took a little to get the air pressure and volume to where I needed it, gave it a test hit to see how it would work and and I am pleased with the result. You can see where the glass bead has removed the corrosion from the shock body, fittings and I also gave the area around the mount a quick hit.
I'm gonna need more glass bead to do this right.
After I will hit the body and fittings with a number of coats of clear and the may install the fancy KING stickers on the shock bodies (facing forward) for additional protection.
Only downside.......glass beads everywhere.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF
