    So I started the project of bed-lining my gray faded plastic front bumper. I am using the Rustoleum spray can bedliner which is like 1000grit. Its very fine and actually looks great. Pics to come since its raining.

    Nice. I used Herculiner on my grill surround and front and rear bumpers. But the texture is a lot thicker.

    Looks good. How long did it take you to remove the bumper cover? I want to do mine, but keep putting it off due to a pain in the butt to remove. Don't have much time now since it gets dark early, and my weekends are booked....:(

    A lot of times I will just get another part (bumper in this case) and do the work ahead of time and just sell (ebay or craigslist) the removed piece.

    I am thinking about getting another stock bumper to use as a base for a custom one. I have a pretty nice shop to build in at work (gosh I wouldn't do it on company time though :D) and just have the local fab guy (Ironman Offroad) weld it up.

    Looks like I need to re-do my fender flares and do the front bumper this time. That looks really good.

    Took me abour 30mins to take off bumper. Then 30mins of cleaning it with dish soap. Then 5mins of painting and 5 mins of sanding. Gonna add another coat tomorrow.

    8 bolt took all of 30 mins.

    Its only 8 bolts its fairly simple. I thought it would be hard until I did it.

    I can help:D

    No, when sanding it it doesn't rub off when sanding hard so I think its good.

    Thanks dude. If I had to do it over id use adhesive promoter before I sprayed it. If it peels off for me I'm going to get the 01-04 4runner bumper.

    Curious how that is holding up too.

    I got some of that Durabak stuff a co-worker had left over. Hopefully it keeps until spring. It needs to be removed and blasted first.
