First off, I can't believe I've missed this build thread! I've been wondering how it was going with your new Bullnose.
That seems to be the way the work on mine goes tooIt'd be an afternoon job...
I found that when I dropped my tank too. Not quite as bad, but I thought I just had surface rust but when I put the wire wheel to it I found pinholes. I think it's the same thing that gets the quarters and tailgates; essentially exposed to mud all the time.After I took off the skid plate, I was astounded with how much rust there was...
Same reason I went back with steel again. I like the skid plate, looks very heavy duty.I wanted to go with a plastic tank, but it was about $220 shipped and a steel one was about $85 on Amazon Prime. I couldn't justify the plastic one.
