    Decided to redo my front end....paint, clean, de rust etc

    Ugly base model grey grille changed to black with Krylon plastic paint

    Used Mr Clean magig erasers to restore fender flares to black...worked great but the lower valence was too weathered to look black so i used Plasti Dip...we shall see how it holds up but the bond seems great due to the texture of the valence

    no bubbles ....looks good ...only sprayed 2 days ago...do not expect great results...the winter will be the test.

    Here is a pic of my Tundra C-caps....they have help up great 5 months but I have only driven the truck 2,500 km's since then
