Its not fun but here is the only stuff I use for repairing vinyl and leather seats.
vinyl and leather repair compounds and graining.
Cant go wrong with the pro 3 stuff on that page. the problem is it cost $10 and you will have enough to repair a fleet of 20 year old school busses lol.

Don't scratch a rock on it. It will all peel off. And if you wheel like I do it's quite often. I have to respray mine with bed liner after every trip

Not sure if this is where I should ask this question BUT....
I just got an aluminum cargo carrier from harbor freight. Has anyone done any mods to have this mounted over the spare tire instead of coming straight out of the bumper?
Thanks in advance for any response...

Can I just mount this on the ends of my stock bumper by drilling a hole and mounting it that way or do I need to get brackets or something? I'm a newbie at this. How was the installation?

Is it a swing away tire carrier or the stock one? If stock then I highly doubt it, swing away one is do-able.

Let me know how you end up painting it. Once i get these i'll want no part in that chrome haha. I should also add KC stone guards so they look better than what they really are. Would that work?

PO kept the ash tray (I'm okay with this since I don't smoke) but I figured out my garage door opener fit in there really well.
