Finally got sick of looking at my ugly, rusty chrome rear bumper..Ripped it off this morning and started sanding tonight. PITA process to do by hand, but I have no other choice, also should have worn a mask, probably took 5 years off my life tonight.
Did a pretty good 100 grit sanding and will do a 220 wet sand tomorrow. Hopefully that, followed by a nice wash and alcohol cleaning will do the trick. I just bought some krylon primer and flat black, hopefully that will work ok.
If anyone has done this and wants to chime in feel feel.
Off the truck
After the 100 grit sanding
Picked up the supplies today...I'm hoping to get it done in the next few days..
Might get this done tonight..It's snowing and I want to park in the garage, lol
First Primer Coat
Finished primer coat, really happy with how that turned out.
Bedliner dripped down the side, not happy with that...I'm thinking about getting the roll on stuff, this spray is driving me crazy.
Sanded down the entire bed armor layer with 100 grit sandpaper, then wiped down with a wet cloth. Added about 4 more light coats and it turned out great! Will post another photo tomorrow when the sun is out and I get it mounted.
Here it is...Looks great, I love it! Probably gonna do the emblems and fender flares. Any little discoloration you see is just a little water from the bath.
