Raptorliner, had an extra liter from when I did the whole car. Scuffed and thoroughly degreased. For bare metal raptorliner recommends an etching primer. The better way is a 2k epoxy. I didn’t bother priming at all. I expect it to get beat up and chipped. It’s easier and more durable than powder coat and to touch up as well. I did the whole car correctly, tinted the factory silver.Skid plate finish looks good. What brand bed liner and did you do any prep work or just sprayed it on? Lucked out on the brakes.
Screeching sounds from the alternator, an occasional whiff of smoke, intermittent battery light and the voltmeter ranging from 11.4 to 12.5 on the highway. All power & ground wires are new.What prompted the alternator? Today while driving I had to turn around. I have a voltmeter in my cigarette outlet and saw voltages going to 11V. Had the AC and audio. All my grounds are 0 gauge. The main power wire isn’t changed but looks clean. I’ve had plans to go to a high output alternator with ELD bypass. I might be doing it sooner than planned.
I know an OEM/dealership fanboi who gonna like you.
That indeed sounds like the while you should not ignore if it follows RPMs.Screeching sounds from the alternator, an occasional whiff of smoke, intermittent battery light and the voltmeter ranging from 11.4 to 12.5 on the highway. All power & ground wires are new.
More than likely, I’ll keep the battery on a charger and still drive it locally until I can get a replacement on hand. Most my trips are less than a few miles and quick turnarounds. I have another car for longer trips if I need. Going to wait on a quote from Singer, depending on that I’ll decide on a Mechman or Singer.My 💰 bet is on your alternator
Great that you can still find a deal out there. Back in the day going to the local bone yard on the weekends around here used to be interesting. Nowadays the local bone yards are no longer inexpensive, mean as a junk yard dog, restrictive and probably a gamble on some parts.$400.00 for the alternator? That $40.00 boneyard (looked rather new) one is looking better and better.
