Well guys I turn to you to give recommendations on what to finish my new AllPro sliders with. I'm thinking a textured matte black paint because I know I can touch it up. LineX will get damaged and probably look like crap after it gets peeled off. Powder coat costs a few bucks and is good until you hammer it, so I think that's out. Do they have a textured black automotive paint? My buddy will probably shoot them for under $100 bucks. I don't think i'll get a good coat with the rattle cans. Post up!

I went with the bbq matte black hi temp paint after two primer coats . I thought about the bedliner stuff but read a post that someone had done that and its a real shin scraper. The allpros definatly stick out further and your leg will rub against them.With the bed liner stuff I imagine it feels like rough grit sand paper.

Powdercoated semi-gloss black (yeah, I know, sucks when they get scratches). Three 2"x12" long pieces of friction tape on each slider. They were very slippery in the rain without the tape!! My wife almost busted her a**!!!

That's the finish I'm looking for. Did you sand them down good first or just go at em' raw?
We didn't the first go round. I'm going to scuff them up a little & repaint before we head out to the Summit. They are pretty slippery when wet.

Yeah, Tom(Karpi71) put some non- skid tape on his for that reason. Thanks for the replies.

x2 that's what I did, $200 for a good powdercoat, go to Homedepot get textured tape, use rustolem to touch up.
