Icon5 Guys, 2 Questions......

Since the last time I posted an update of the B4K, I've removed the toolbox and put a Access Limited tonneau cover on it, and also re-installed my tailgate. Did a little sticker delete mod on the rear window. But....I have two semi-important questions.

1.) I need to fab up some custom bed rail caps so the rust isnt exposed. As you can tell by the photos I have predrilled holes from tie down hooks that were there, and also there is exposed rust from where the toolbox dug through the protective foam we put underneath and scrathed paint. Just take a look and give me ideas on what I can do. Or if anyone has caps/rails that are cheap, or if someone can custom make them =)

2.) The last 3 pictures, is duct tape residue from when my chrome molding started to come off. We had to duct tape it since I was a few hundred miles away from home and had no gorilla glue. Well I finally gorilla glued it back and now I'm left w/ ugly *** tape residue. Any idea on how to get it off? I treid my fingernail, a decal remover, a straight razor.....nothing works without f**king up the black plastic/chrome it's on.


This 1st picture......I learned German =)

Well as for bed rail caps you can get a lot of those, check out http://www.lmctruck.com/ and see what they have. As for the residue try some goofoff or something of that nature.

to get the residue off use a little gas on a rag...should do the trick...make sure you wipe it off with water so you don't have streaking
