    How To Rejuvinate Window Seals

    Craig Jones
    By Craig Jones,
    A brief guide to cover rejuvinating old wind seals. This won't renew their sealing ability, merely correct or alter the aesthetics. If the seals are similar to a defender here, they don't do a whole lot of sealing, and tend to be replaced through degradation from UV as opposed to actual function.   Flat back the seal externally removing all oxidisation using either a Scotchbrite abrasive pad or a flexible sanding pad Once flatted back you want to give the abraided area two light coats with plastic primer adhesion promoter Allow to cure (typically under 5 minutes) Apply two light coats of your preferred top coat. Here we have used the Bedliner Aerosol for a tough flexible finish, resistant to UV

    2K with CIO on knuckle balls?

    By abosely,
    Hey Craig, when working on the axle housings this afternoon I thought of a question about protecting the knuckle balls. The Toyota Land Cruiser knuckle balls are welded into the housing instead of bolted on like Land Rovers, so can't be chrome plated. Since I'm going to be using 2K on the chassis, axles and such with CIO (decided to go with gloss instead of the satin) for UV protection. Would there be any reason not to coat the knuckle balls with 2K & CIO? The only real rubbing or friction they get is from the rubber wiper rings and if something did wear through it could be re-coated. Though I doubt if the 2K would ever get worn through! I don't think there would be any clearance issues, with the thickness of the coatings. Cheers, Allen
