I have a bunch on John Deere stuff in my truck front and back floor mats, steering wheel cover, license plate, cup holder inserts and mudflaps, I got all that stuff from Tractor supply, I think they have IH stuff too. I want to get a big decal to go across the windshield but I haven't found one I like yet.

IH stuff would look pretty good on your white truck imo

I gotta do some stuff like that, but first mission is to get it clean.

With a lot of the plastic covers how did you paint them? Is there a way to do this at home or would I have to take it someplace to get it done?

I had the Alt. powder coat, but didn't like the color once it was baked. So the rest I used factory automotive paint inside and out. Painting is not hard and your not dealing with very large parts, so easy to redo if you mess something up. So give it a try..

What about using spray paint? For instance some of the products made for cars?

Sure if you can find a color you like. Basics like red, black, white or easy to match. But my blue wasn't so, I went factory blue.

Just fab-up some brackets and make it fit. But shame on you if you put it on a 3.0 without shaving the 4.0 SOHC.

i had painted the letters on my cover, but the hood's heat shield keeps slowly rubbing it off...maybe i need to clearcoat it?

Just go down to your local autopaint & Body store they can mix you up some. Now there are places where you can get it in spray can just cost more money.
