once the surround matches the hood a wee bit better, itll look perfect.

look a bit better?



also a few weeks ago, i had painted the skidplate black, and yesterday repainted all the lower suspension with the spray on bedliner. that stuff sticks really well, to anything lol. and dries quickly. did the front bumper with the spray on bedliner yesterday too. thats what i just used for the grille. mathces great. and has a slight texture to it which is perfect

also a quick shot of what hides behind that grille.. haha


after i washed and waxed it

I'm generally not a huge fan of the "pre-runner" setups, but that looks darn good!

swweet. What did you use to paint the grill? I scuffed/painted my billet bumper insert a few months ago and it has a bunch of chips now thanks to all my highway driving. I used gloss black Rustoleum in a rattle can and clearcoated it too. I've been thinking of repainting it with Por15 or something
