    That grille came out really nice for the bed liner stuff, my grille on my S-10 is fading real bad and I was looking for an idea like this. Did you spray that coating on, OR did you use a kit like Herculiner on it? The truck is in real good shape though compared to what I see up here in Ohio, a little rust on the doors but nothing that can't be fixed.

    ya i used the rustoleum kind because the duplicolor stuff is to shiny for me. i used a whole can on it i think it was 3 or 4 coats. its really easy to do. ya the dottom of the door is a lot worse than it looks but i think once i de trim the truck im going to debline the bottom of the truck from where the top of the trim is now. the dents were free for me beacuase the PO did all of the other than the one in my rear bumper from a parking pole last night lmao

    my grill was chipping and peeling so all i really did for prep was wash it and sand the peeling and chipped parts and that was it its holding up real good and when ever i wash my truck i use eagle one tire gel on a tire swipe and it gets its rich black color back with little to no shine.

    Thanks for the heads up on the paint stuff, I might try it because my grille is basically junk from seeing 9 hard winters with lots of salt. It made your grille look like you bought a brand new one, excellent job I think.

    thank you and your welcome if you have any other questions just let me know and i will try and answer them. i had a guy ask me at auto zone where i go my grill and i said i got it here, he goes how much did you pay i told him i think it was 10 bucks. i then told him it was bedliner on a stock chrome grill. ya it holds up real well i took those pictures today after i detailed my truck the grill has seen about 2k with the paint and a few wheeling trips and still looks like its new.

    Nice truck, but really nice tires. I install those on a lot of F-250's and Chevy 2500's and 1500HD's. Those are great, great tires.
