Lund Wind Jammer Install

The Lund Wind Jammer that I ordered from Truck Stuff USA (Dead Link Removed ). It cost $79.00 delivered to my door. This is a great company; my order was at my door 2 days after ordering with no extra freight charges.

The wing is made of a shiny black plastic. It would probably look ok mounted as it comes; however, I wanted it to match my truck’s color (Chestnut Metallic ).

I ordered paint from Paint Scratch (http://www.paintscratch.com/). On their website you can match the factory paint code ( B4/M6938 ) and they make the paint and in my case put in 12 oz spray cans of Chestnut Metallic Clearcoat. It took about 10 days to arrive. They have a section on their website where you can check your order status.

First step in the painting process was to thoroughly sand ( 600 to 1000 grit ) the wing to prep it for 2 coats of “red” primer. The primer was sprayed on and allowed to dry 1 hour followed by a sanding with 1000 grit paper then another coat. This was allowed to dry for 24 hours.

Then the color paint was applied in 3 coats with 1-hour drying time between each coat. This was followed after a 1-hour drying time, with clear coat, I used 3 coats with a 30 minute dry time between coats.

I let the wing dry overnight and then gave it a good rubbing with rubbing compound. Then I mounted it to the truck with the supplied 3M tape.

The paint came out looking very “factory”. I am happy with this project.

Al, you still running with the WJ on? I got one and it's still in the box. Just wanted to know what you think about it now after several years.
