Chad's Stormtrooper

Got a request for a build thread and a couple questions thrown at me so here goes.

Most recent


Dealer photo


Did the cap-removal mod.


Then, the drive 300 miles to get a free boat mod (put the cap back on for the trip)


Then the fun started, first the lower valance



Then the BHLM



Here is the boat all cleaned up and lookin sweet



I work at for a radiology practice (IT) so I fought some breast cancer


Painted the wheels, in my kitchen!



Then cheap spacer lift



Shaved and my Zone Offroad decal




Got my taillight covers in the mail this week, gotta get my 3M tape and put those on. Then going to derp the skid.

Flame and or Love, GO!

Thanks gents, black on white is the only way to go! I'm thinking I'll paint the skid with black bedliner, do you guys think that will look good? Or stay with the brushed look?

There isn't much more to it than this, scuff, tape and spray.

2 questions:

1: Why do you say scuff? I read that scuffing would make it harder to remove if I did a bad job

2: You think if I plasti-dipped chrome covers with black plasti-dip, would it stay and look good?

1: Scuffing the surface gives the paint something to adhere to.
2: Plastidip is a temporary solution and will not hold up in the long term.

On the picture where you did the BHLM lights, is BHLM a brand? If so, where'd you buy that kit?

the lower valence painted black looks good. Does the truck bedding coating have a material finish? Or does it look like regular paint?

It's a rough finish, as you would expect with professional bedliners.

Gloss Black Rustoleum | Painting Stock Rims

Can you share any details on how you painted the rims? Clean them thoroughly is the obvious first step. Any tips or tricks? How many coats and how have they held up so far?

Thanks
