Crusher Flares come as unpainted, bare steel or aluminum. You will want to either powder coat or paint prior to final installation, however it is very important to PRE-INSTALL the unpainted product first, following these instructions, BEFORE painting or powder coating any of the components! This will ensure that all parts are correct and any incidental trimming or drilling will have been done prior to coating. Also, it will give you a practice run to familiarize yourself with the process, to lessen the likelihood of damaging the finish during final installation.
Poison Spyder Customs, Inc. is NOT RESPONSIBLE for paint or powder coating costs, damage to paint or powder coating, or costs associated with inadvertently painting or powder coating components that are defective or were shipped or assembled in error. It is the customer's responsibility to pre-install and verify that all parts are correct prior to paint or powder coat.
On STEEL Crusher Flares, it is important to properly seal all of the seams where metal pieces join without a weld. This includes both the outside and inside seam where the top plate meets the outer tube. The reason is to prevent moisture from entering these hard-to-reach places and causing rust, and to prevent moisture from subsequently leaking back out of these areas and bringing rust reside with it, on to your paint or powder coat finish. There are many products available to seal these areas, from rubberized undercoating products to silicone sealant. If powder-coating, make sure the sealing method is one that is tolerant of the high temperatures used in the powder coat baking process. Consult your professional painter or powder coater for best suggestions.
