    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?

    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 .

    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?
