Painted something. I got Pics!!!

Well, I really don't know what these things are called, but they can be seen under the truck and since they were so dirty and had rust spots on them, they really werent pretty. So, I washed them and sanded them and painted them with some epoxy black spray paint I had. I am really happy with the results.

I did similar to mine.

All you have to do to clean it is wipe it off at the most. mine just hoses off since it's smooth.

I've got caked on mud on mine too BTW
