Default My work from the last few weeks

I've been very busy, but have still gotten in some good stuff. Mostly paint


Dupli-color performance wheel coating. Looks nice. I'm not sure about the hubcaps. I need to polish them up, or paint them in green to match the body.


Legal max in Kansas for tint (35%VLT) Nightshade on the 3rd brake light also.


Painted the wiper blades. They were nasty before.


Mocked up my racing stripes. The real ones are in the mail


Painted the bezel to match the body also.


Tell me what you guys think.

looks good! pretty good work on that bezel, are the racing stripes black? that would look really cool, or like a faded darker shade of the body color

I laughed when I read this, then a checked to make sure my truck was still in the driveway.

I don't live too far from springfield. And if there is another truck rolling around w/ the same wheel pattern, I will have to paint my hubcaps green and maybe a pinstipe on them.

Yes, I basicly copied exactly off this mod: 1993-1997 Ford Ranger Grill Modification

The insert is just gutter guard from home depot. I looked around, and i liked this pattern best.

Vinyl overlays? do you mean vinyl stripes? or is this some sort of protectant for the stripes?

All I ordered were 20 ft. stripes from jcwhitney.com
