Looks really good. The sandstorm (or quicksand) are one of the few colors that I think look good with the white top. Nice looking FJ!

Hannahs sounds great man, let me know the day and ill be there.
yes i did say some sliders, I've got an idea with some grip strut to add in between the tubes.
thanks Brian, its a tough decision the white looks great on the roof but I'm very tempted to just see what one looks like blacked out with a black roof.

Just stumbled upon this and I gotta say, the plasti-dipped roof looks just as good as I was hoping. I've been wanting to do this for a couple months now, but I just don't know where to start! Do you have any tips or suggestions to this? How did you tape off the lines between the roof and door/windows/side of truck? Did you have to tape off the roof rack mount holes before painting? I assume you took the rack off, but correct me if I'm wrong. And most importantly... has it held up well?

I've had about 7 cans of paint sitting at my house, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

sadly i haven't had much time to finish them off, i wanted to do more and actually add a side step/kick out to them but the material i've been wanting to buy is a pain to get ... and a little expensive for what i'm doing. but right now their just some basic sliders.

Metal direct has a large selection of grip strup expanded metal etc. I bet if you spend 30 minutes a couple of days at biltmore iron you will find what you need for pennies on the dollar.
