pianting, share your expertice

after much searching i bought this tire carrier/bumper on friday
http://www.nates4x4.com/catalog/prod...products_id=32

comes unpianted tho. whats the best way to do it yourself? my friends does commercial and residential pianting and he said spraypiant, or piant brush would just look pretty lousy, with streaks or drips. hes only advise was to rent a "sprayer" for what they actually use to piant car parts. any suggestions?

depends on how much you care how good it looks. i did mine with a brush and it looks decent but has lots of streaks, i dont care how it looks i just wanted no rust, i uset rustoleum industrial oil based flat black. definitely functional but not aestheticly pleasing

You would really be surprised at what you can do with with a puffcan! Get some Rustoleum primer and some Rustoleum paint and do several light coats. I think you will be surprised at how good it can look, besides if you mess up you can always wet sand and add another coat.

i dont see the rear bumper offered on that site? Does the tire carrier work with any bumper (besides stock).

I do most of my painting with cans, if you take your time and prep properly you can get a nice paint job.

Once you get the bumper go to the parts store, get a quart of paint thinner, not mineral spirits, Acetone will work too, I use prep-sol for this. If there are any metal pieces that look bad use some heavy grit paper or grinder to clean them up, now put on some gloves and using some paper towels wipe the metal down with the thinner, keep your bare hands off it, don't want any skin oil on there. It should flash off in a few minutes, use a can of self etching primer and spray a base coat of primer, do light coats, 3 or 4 usually does it for me. Let it dry for a half hour or so, if it's outside wipe it down again with the acetone or thinner, let it flash off, then start using the color, don't wave the can in an arc, stand in front of the bumper and move your body left to right then back again so the can/nozzle stays the same 12-18 inches away. Light coats, I usually put on 5-8 coats. I also stay within brands. If I'm using rustoleum I use rustoleum primer and paint, if duplicolor I again stay with the primer and paint. They are actually made to work together.
When I repainted my back TJ bumper I spent 3 hours stripping off the old stuff and rust with 3m pads in drill. Then I hung it with the D ring tabs from a pole I put between two trees. The trick to making it look good is thin coats and no runs.

this thought has crossed my mind. i would have to do it myself tho since im broke. iv been thinking about DIY bed liner for the interior aswell.
i rhink it would look like total shight, if you brushed on bedliner on the bumper without a professional. anyone done some DIY bed-liner on anything?

at least iv ruled out brushes. i dont mind a smudge, but streaking would bug me everytime i looked at it.

blacke1 there should be pictures just scroll down and pic from the gallery. and no, i dont think they work with stock bumpers...i could be wrong tho

I see now that the spare tire rack is optional on the bumper. For some reason i though you had a link to the optional tire rack for that price. Don't mind me i misunderstood.
