Post newly painted frame on jack stands

I just finished painting the frame on my '49 Chevy truck. I built what I call a frame rotisserie to paint it on. Its like two large engine stands on each end of the frame, I can roll the frame all the way over. Anyway! now that its painted I need to get on the ground on the jack stands. Any one have any good tricks on protecting the new paing from the jack stands?? I thought about spraying that rubberized under coating on the top of the stands. Or some thick towles. Any other bright ideas?? <img src="graemlins/pimp.gif" border="0" alt="[pimp]" /> Thanks!

I am going to have my '53 puckup frame powder coated. Got tired of chipped paint. Can you put a couple of 1"x4" boards wrapped in towels or such across the tops of the stands and under the frame while you are hooking up the suspension? Bunji-cord the frame to the boards.

Mav, if you go to your local home depot or lows they sell bright yellow soft rubber boots for the top of the jack stands, I beleive they are under $30 for a set. Or you could just go to wally world and get a cheap bag of shop towels and use those, or some of that foam pipe insulation works pretty good.

I'm with willy's if I have the money and want the finish product to last I'm all for powder coating. It will never chip rarely scratch and is vertually fade resistant and needs almost no maintance. Just spray the chunks of grime off whipe it down and go

Thanks guys!! Its already painted. I used Zero Rust and thier clear coat. It looks great. I know powder coating is stronger then paint but it still dose chip. I seen it several times even on powder coating from the factory. and the only way to repair it is to re-powder coat the whole thing <img src="graemlins/nono.gif" border="0" alt="[nono]" /> If this was going to be a show truck then for sure I would powder coat! At least with paint you can just re-paint the place thats chipped. The ZR and clear coat is really strong. I just know sitting on the stands and moving around will cause some damage.

HK Ill see if I can find those boots that sounds like a good idea!!!

Thanks Guys!!

Several layers of cardboard topped with a little wax paper will work fine, but make sure it can't slip around.
