Rear axle and suspension components painted

I just painted my rear axle, diff, leafs, shocks, and the back of my brakes with the vht chassis and roll bar paint, looks pretty good.

Here's the can. gloss finish, it's only about 7 bucks a can and one can was enough for two coats. It's pretty easy to spray. I just had to clean it first, scuff it up and then wipe and paint. Forgot to take befores, but it didn't look bad before, only a bit of surface rust.

Looks good, I need to do this at some point.
My F150 came from up North and has a lot of surface rust for an 06. I'd like to pull off and repaint the bumper, and pull the bed off and paint the whole frame again. Not that it looks that bad now but I want to get it before it does look bad.

Yeah i have more to paint before my senior year starts, I'm glad I don't live in a salt state but I am about 30 miles from the coast. I think a contractor was the original owner of this truck, I just took up the floor and seats and found a bunch of electrical connectors and fasteners and dirt, but there is alot of dirt in the frame, needs powerwashing and some simple green. that stuff sprayed from a pesticide sprayer works pretty well for this.

It's the day after I painted, the stuff is supposed to be dry to the touch within about 15 minutes, and cure for about 3 days, It's holding up great, and it does look like it adhered well. I thought it also might be notable that it doesn't require primer.

i used the asphault undercoating stuff for my S15 and it works great.. i will eventually do this to my ranger as well, maybe when i replace my rear leaf springs. a couple of weeks ago i washed the under side of my ranger just to get all the dirt and crap off. the asphault stuff is kinda messy but worth it..
