look at my grill!

Just got done spraying the grill. Next its the fenders. I used rustoleum flat black and it turned out awesome. Now I just need to figure out how to get the paint to stick on the plastic fenders.

I was so excited I forgot to take a before shot.

yes, it says krylon fusion. did mine in gloss and they are a touch too shiny for me. might redo them in semi gloss or flat black. otherwise holding up well and I wash them often

Dawn dish detergent, acetone, dish detergent again. Rinse thoroughly, spray, wait, smile.

I did mine last year and are holding up great. I'm going to redo them when I get time with rustoleum bedliner though to match my bumpers and trim.

Awesome. Hopefully the krylon flat black will match the rustoleum flat black I used.

I did. I think that's the headlight itself. I also painted the screws that hold the bezel in so take that. LOL.

My flares are next. Just picked up some flat black fusion. Either tonight or tomorrow night that will be done. And I'm getting my rims and tires put on as we speak. What a great start to the weekend! Not for my wallet though.
