Current Pics and future ideas

Hey guys I just got done washing my truck and shining it all up, so I decided to take a few pics and let you in on what I plan on doing with it.

gotta love the tinted windows :)

I need some sort of a bed liner, desperately.
New tires will come soon, bfg a/t around 31s I think.
I'm going to remove the pinstripe once summer gets hot.
Some kind of bed rails.....
I also already bought the metalcast spray paint to tint my tail lights and i think i'm going to lay a coat or two on my parking lights

Use a spray on bed liner, works good and probably better then most bed liners.

Yeah, that works just as well. Just more work of couse

Don't tint your tails with spray paint, you need real paint. 80% clear and 20% black is the mix Im sure.

Here is a How To on the DIY Bedliner..
You need to either lower it, or put some bigger tires on it..

Do you have a heat gun? or even a hairdryer? it is very easy to do, took me about an hour to do mine.

If you are going to do metal cast, I would get a clear coat. The metal cast comes out flat.

Also, do NOT paint your corners with the red paint. Uber illegal.

After you spray your tails, spray them with some cleacoat.

Cooper Discoverer STT 31's FTW.

Any professional spray in bedliner FTW.

Truck looks good by the way. Ditch the deflector on the hood though. And your RF sticker is crooked. lol

The black metalcast does come out looking flat, from seeing your corners thats what it looks like.

Go 32x11.5!

For some reason I thought you had the red and amber tail lights and you said you were going to paint them and the corner lights with the RED metalcast, but i reread and you're tinting them, so everything is cool. Nothing illegal in your plans.

Just make sure you clearcoat the lights cuz they'll look like crap like mine did.

Looks good to me. Definitely go with a spray in liner. I'll never have another drop in.
