    Hey 99... good thing you dont live up here in the great white north otherwise you would end up not being able to find your truck half the year! haha. Looking great. and what did you use to pain the bumper pads since i know the plastic is quite porous.. and how are you going to keep it from getting scuffed up stepping on it?

    Thanks Mike....I used Dupli-Color's.....Adhesion Promoter.....Primer.....Prefect Match Paint and Clear Coat,


    Dupli-Color® Adhesion Promoter improves adhesion of enamel and lacquer topcoats to all surfaces, including plastic and chrome. Adhesion Promoter is an all-purpose clear primer ideal for both interior and exterior applications.
    Where to buy?




    Self-Etching Primer

    Dupli-Color® Self-Etching Primer etches and primes bare metal in one step, making it ideal to use as the first step in all automotive priming projects and for use on spot repairs. A high-quality formulation allows for maximum adhesion under all types of automotive finishes on plastics, fiberglass, bare steel, aluminum and stainless steel surfaces.





    Dupli-Color® Perfect Match™ Premium Automotive Paint is an easy-to-use, high-quality, fast-drying, acrylic lacquer aerosol paint specially formulated to exactly match the color of the original factory applied coating. Ideal for use on all OEM paint surfaces, Perfect Match is available in a complete line of exact-match colors for current and late model import and domestic vehicles, making this product ideal for both small scale vehicle touch-up and for painting vehicle accessories,















    I used......2 Coats of Adhesion Promoter.....2 Coats of Primer.....3 Coats of Prefect Match Paint and 3 Coats of Clear.....For each Coat 15-20 Flash time, I've already stepped on the pads no problem so far, the Clear Coat should help with the pads not getting Scuffed up, but time will tell......a couple of my friends checked it out and though I had them painted at Auto Body Shop......I'm just Really Pleased with the Finish I got from using these Dupli-Color Products .

    Mike.....Once again I'm Really Impressed with How Well the Paint Matched up with the 11 Year Old Paint on the Truck.

    Truck looks awesome Mike, the color matching you have done is really tasteful. The touches of chrome make it look like it's not overdone, and really compliments the white. So....what's next?
