Why can't you mask it off? That's what I'd do.

Thats what im going to do lol.

Wheels....i havent decided if I want to paint em, I would rather get black aftermarket rims, Im about to 5/7 drop the the chevy so trying not spend all my money on the ranger at once.

I might pick these up if they are 15s http://elpaso.craigslist.org/pts/1701385284.html havent emailed me back yet.

Looks good... I thought that that was a gun laying out on the table and I was gonna ask what kind of neighborhood do you live in where you need a gun to paint in your driveway then I realized it was a spray nozzle for the paint can
