GoldenSahara00 I think I have some of that^ downstairs to redo my sliders since I really tore them up last wheeling season and it got too cold to paint last fall. Hopefully they turn out good. I agree I did my diff covers and many other things and the paint always comes out consistant, even, and looks great.

Rustoleum bed coating is pretty tough, and easily touched up.
Krylon spray paint is hard to beat. I restore antique gas lanterns, and I've sprayed many founts that turned out far better than the original paint. It's almost hard to make it run.
I'm going to see if I can find some of the no skid stuff. Thanks.

Primer, non skid or bedliner, top with flat black if that's the color you want. I do it a lot for the flat color.

Yes this is all spray can stuff. The no skid is very rough like sand paper. The stone guard is a smooth but thick bedliner.

Actually here is an older pic. And this stuff I like.

Lmao, that's why the title says "I hate mud" I really really really didn't want to go through it. I more of the rock crawler type. I fell into peer pressure. Everybody else did it, so i felt the need to Trust me im sticking to rocks from here on out. That was a pretty expensive run through the mud

Blue Rubicon Put it on bare metal for now and wait until you have the money to get it powder coated. You won't regret it.

Came pretty damn close to hydro-locking my motor, but i didnt.
So right now i can't really afford a powder coat.

Patrick H I personally would use either Krylon Satin Black or Rustoleum truck bed coating.

I was looking into POR 15 rubberized undercoating.. but im not too sure if it would fade under sunlight. And im not sure how i would like the finish, may be too much of a matte look. Anybody have experience with this?

Quality DIY bumper paint

I just got my Poison Spyder Comp Stinger in the mail today
It came shipped bare metal, and im looking for a quality paint to apply to it. I'd like rough finish like my Metalcloaks, and don't want a glossy finish. I know the best solution would probably be powder coat, but it's expensive. And i just had some (expensive) problems wheeling so don't have the money to powder coat it right now.
It's a pretty big front stinger so it may get a little scratched up on the trails.


Any suggestions on DIY paint?
