This weekend I took off the front bumper, took off the front plate and repainted it.
Started with removing the front plate pins and welding up the holes with a wire welder. Then I sanded it down and used dolphin-glaze (bondo) in the holes. Sanded everything down and gave it a paintjob. 4 coats of color, and 3 coats of clear.
It looks so smooth now that I'm plateless.
I know the truck is dirty, sorry for that.
