When I did mine, luckily the trans was out and a new slave and clutch was installed, anywho, when I was doing the swap, I popped off the cover, sandblasted all the old paint off, used self etching primer 4 light coats, about 8 coats of dublicolor chrome, and about 15-20 light coats of glass clear coat. I've had alot of bad luck in the past with that "chrome-in-a-can" crap. It's been on the truck for 20k and it's holding up VERY well.
Throw some clear on that biatch.!
