    ask your local body shop how much it would be to paint it. you may be surprised how cheap it is, and the quality of the work will be much better than a spray can.

    Between, sanding materials, primer, paint, clear and the time you need to spend... its actually cheaper to get it dont... I say it because I did it both ways... and when I did it myself I spent more... :(

    How long would a place take to do it and supplies and all can't be more than 30 bucks or so. If I can spend 30 and do it in a few hours rather than wait a day for them I'll do myself. Thanks for color info

    Put it this way... You'll need some serious supplies to get that done, especially considering that you're painting over chrome. I can't imagine that you'd pay less than $100 to get it done yourself. If a shop charges you $150, with warranty, and you've got a better colour match, with REAL clear, not spray-can shit, then you're laughin'!!!

    I have a tuff country 3 inch spacer lift that I'm removing in a week for billies all around set at 2.5 in front. Then I'll see what I need to do to get rid of rake.
