Duplicolor bumper coating works great too i just used it on mine and turned the old dirty tan interior to a slick black and its durable as heck ill throw up some pics later

Here is a cheap and easy tail light mod. Taped off and painted some of the exterior and lightly tinted/smoked on the inside.

I did this and kept getting flashed because it appeared my lights weren't on. I did it lightly as well but I guess at night they are dim.
I bought new ones and put them on instead.

Nice!! I was thinking BMX pegs! They'll have to come after the mirrors though....

Right now I'm working on staying dry, it's gonna storm badly here today and I have to be somewhere right when it's going to be the worst. So I'm putting on my bikini top and tonneau cover.

Not a cheap or creative mod. But just prepped everything for the raptor liner. Waiting for my buddy to bring me a connector for the compressor. I have no seats or seat belts or anything, so i can't drive and get my own parts.

Why would you plasti dip then bedline over it, makes no sense. Just bedline it

My guess would be to try and peel it off later since the liner is bonded to the plasti dip and not perma bonded to the grille.

I'm with you, I would just bedline it.

The point being there is always the option of removing it later. No paint scuffing would be involved. Something reassuring knowing that it's but permanent.

So then why not just not scuff it and spray the bedliner on then peel it off later?

i saw it posted on here already but this is my version of a paracord winch pull i made today.
insted of paracord, i used a 4ish foot length of 5mm recoil rope and a 150lb carabiner. completly free as i already had the rope and carabiner (but you could just steel the recoil rope from your neighbors lawnmower )

Metal Cloak would be a good choice for sure.
