new pix (did alot O' work)

ive been pretty busy lately messin around with my ranger
im starting to make it my own... didn't take long for me to catch the mod bug

everyone responded to my last pictures saying my fender flares and bumper needed to be repainted (really faded)

I decided to go with a dark grey with a little clear for a slight shine
im happy I went with something other than black (looks good but over done)
I think they came out pretty damn good for a spray can job
I used duplicolor paint
2 coats of dark grey primer
2 coats of dark grey bumper paint
1 coat clear with a touch up coat after

forgive me for the front end shots, theres a few dead bugs on the grill lol
i washed it yesterday and didn't have time for pictures

lmk if any of these pictures look good enough to submit for the welcome screen pictures
I cant judge my own work i pick it all apart

I also put in a OHC, Dual lighted visors, and a dome light

heres the link to the pictures

Thanks
Bill

truck looks good, i think it would look good with the bottom portion of the body painted too. I think the gray does look right on there. I need to do all those inside mods myself.

Looks good, man.

Just a tip for pictures, though. Try to take them near the end of the day when the sun is going down. Really brings out the colors.

I know what u mean extreme, im kinda up in the air about the bug shield

If I had your truck id want to flaunt that sweet hood as much as possible but my trucks front is so friggin boring to me
Id say about 80% of the time i like the shield though lol

to answer back to noone; do you mean from the crease in the door down or the bottom part under the door with the rough paint?

i think that bottom bit might look ok but ive seen gen 3's painted from the crease down and it aint for me

thanks 04BLKedge
