Did some more painting Today...

Finally got around to painting my bumpers. Decided I wanted new wheels but dont have the funds so I just painted the stock wheels. Painted everything with Duplicolor Spray on Bedliner, very happy how it turned out...Let me know what you think...

Started with this...



Then added HIDs and Black Housings a few weeks ago...

I would have done the chrome too...Did the paint throw the balance off on the wheels?

Are your old rims 8's or 10's? I've always wanted a set with the fake beadlock.

Grille surround looks out of place, probably would have been better painted the color of the truck. The bumper and the wheels look pretty good.

i liked the chrome surround better, matched the rest of the chrome, now it has too much of a "stock" look to it, almost like a Ranger XL.

also, is that a hammered finish spray paint?

Looks good, but you need to paint/get rid of the chrome bumper. Everything will look and flow a lot better.

Oh and also, get rid of those tires and get some better guys on there.
