A client has come in wanting to get rid of his tub tray and have a custom steel tray made and fitted.
In this post we go from start to finish, we will liaise with the client and decide a design, fabricate the tray to our drawings done on CAD, prepare and 2PAC spray the tray colour coded to match his ute, remove the existing tub tray and discard, fit the new tray on and attach the LED tail lights, reverse lights, number plate and so on and design some mudguards to suit. Design,build, paint and fit.
The client has specified on this particular build to leave the deck off the tray and the headboard as he plans to do his own thing with that.
This is our story.
The tray is then fabricated.
Then test fitted and chassis mounts made to suit.
Lights fitted then sanded and prepared for painting.
Two coats of colour down.
Three coats of colour and 2 coats of clear done and dusted. This is done over a few days to allow the paint to dry properly so we can sand between coats.
Next was to mask off and prep for the black.
Black all done, now to fit the LED tail lights and install!
Lights in ready to install now.
Customer very happy. Thanks Sam for giving me a hand to put it on.
