I'm still amazed how easy this was to do. How long does this usually last?

nope, just a bumper/brush guard with winch mount. It has been having some peeling problems though, especially on the corners and I have a bend in one section of it. I am thinking about taking it off, removing the paint and getting it redone. I just have decided how yet, I will either get it powdercoated, plasti-dip it (cheapest route), spray can bed liner, or get it coated with a good bed liner.

Over the summer, it is gonna have some lights added to it though, I dont know what type yet though, I was considering a couple smaller LED bars

and on a side note, it sure saved my truck when I rear-ended someone with it (going less than 20), which is how I got the said bend above.


also, I plan on doing the bumper next time I am home from school, what all do I need to know?

(aka: how many cans, and easiest way to take it off)

I used one can to do my hood and it's covered pretty well. I would say 2 cans to be on the safe side.

as far as removing the bumper there really isn;t much holding it on i believe there's 3 bolts and 5 plastic clips.

Awesome, I figured that, but I haven't been under there and looked yet, so I figured I would ask. When I take it off, I am gonna scrape as much rust as I can off everything that I can get a wire brush at.....then coat it in rustoleum or some sort of rust killer. I have seen it without the bumper when I had some body work done. I went to pick it up and they weren't done (even though they told me they were) and I saw it without bumper, My hitch has a lot of rust on it.

I am wanting a pretty thick coat on it, so I will probably do 2 cans on it. I also plan on doing a part of my hood, my wheels, and my dash surround around my head unit at the same time this summer

I was also thinking about doing my mirrors, since they are fading. They look good when I use mother's back to black, but it doesn't last as long as I want.

I dipped....



You can't tell unless you're up close, but I'm gonna do another can... the edges didn't get a good coat.... Plus I plan on doing the rear bumper and the center of the lower valence, so I figure that's a nice round 6 cans (to a case) to order...

I swear I saw somewhere where I could order a case at $24.... gonna have to remember where I saw that at now

keep in mind that the more coats you put, the easier it will come off. try not to go past 3/4 coats (this is after you have laid the first primer coat, spraying enough to get the surface corse enough for the dip to apply itself, if you have something to test the dip on, you will see how it won't apply itself to the object your trying to dip with the first spray).
