i gotta stop having days off lol

painted the rockers. all the rest of the pics can be found in the link



Painted the lower rocker panels - a set on Flickr

let me know what ya think!

i was gonna bedline it, but the texture wouldnt match anything else on the truck..

by doing this though, i covered up a lot of scratches and a few dents that i had from wheelin the truck

oh and painted my little 4.0 SOHC engine cover too

thanks man!


also you guys might notice i went with a gloss and not flat. only because that part of the truck gets dirty after driving it for an hour if even. the gloss will be a lot easier to clean then a flat black.
