DIY Recovery toolkit - Update,

As you can see the tools blend in with the bedliner better now. The mounting brackets and the heads of the tools were spraypainted with flat black stove paint and the wood handles were sprayed with Flex-Seal.

To be honest I liked the natural look from before but it screamed “Steal Me” this is much less noticable to people walking by.

The bow saw in the bottom right is next in line to get painted and hung in the same way just ahead of the wheel well hump and the 9mm ammo can next to it is a basic tool kit.

I appologise for the lighting in this and the previous picture, both were taken around 11:00pm with my auxillary cargo lights on.

Due to the popularity of the last post, I will continue to do more vehicle prep articles since my personal truck is an ongoing project.

I was lucky enough to meet Forrest Guth several times over the years. Hell of a guy.
