Nice. I wish someone would paint the bottom of my truck, because I sure as hell don't want to do it.

What kind of paint? Did you prep it or just spray it on?

I would have done mine a while ago but I am too picky about it. So I sit and think of the ways I should clean and prep everything and then never do it.

This time I used a rust preventing paint, see how it holds up and works. For the more noticeable stuff, like the outer frame and the front diff and what not I usually grind down as best I can, and then spray it on.. but the under truck stuff and the drive shafts I just spray over everything.. I don't put TOO much prep into it, just cuz I like doing it every spring, so it looks fresh again.. I hate the DULL black look.. so this usually lasts about a year..
