Response to Very, VERY, VERY nice
sorry, probably wasnt very clear. What I mean by stone guard is a spray on type of rubber type compound that protects the underside of the car from stones and road junk. It absorbes energy from stones, so they bounce off instead of chipping and denting. The X had it standard, but the old tech stone guard is very thick and heavy. The new stuff is no a lot thicker than gluggy paint really.
We replaced the coolant pipes a few years ago when we rebuilt a standard 1500 and put it in there. They look nice but they are just steel tubing which was the stupidest thing to do (doh). I shouldve just paid the extra and had them done in stainless steel to make sure they dont start rusting.
Im not sure what to do. Half of me is of the 'if it aint broke dont fix it' mindset, and will just leave them there as there isnt anything physically wrong with them. But the other half of me wants the job done properly and doesnt want any rusty water being pumped through my fresh clean new engine (when we get around to building it lol) so I'm thinking of maybe pulling them out and redoing them in stainless. Not sure yet which way to go....
