some recent additions

Here are some pics after some recent projects. I got new wheels and tires (BFG AT/KO's 31x10.50x15 on Cragar black soft 8s. Then I sprayed the chrome bumper with Duplicolor bed coating. I also did this to the step bars a while back. I had sprayed the valance as well, but it chips and peels after a while, so I took it off. The bed coating just sticks better to metal.

i may spray them again and sand them better next time. it does take a lot of paint.

I had the coated valance with the chrome bumper for a while, but I wanted to go black with it. Next is the rear bumper. It looks like i have to take the spare and the hitch off to get the rear bumper off. When I get a few days off, i'll try getting to that. I also have a LS sitting in my house waiting to be installed. All it takes is time and money, and I'm running low on both right now.

i think it looks mean how it is. ive never been into chrome either. you should get a black diamondplate valance made up. that would be awsome
