Default Finally Front Bumper Painted

Well as most of you all know I have an 06 xl. I wanted the manual doors, manual locks, and hard floor so thats why. I just happened to get lucky and mine was a 1 owner and the owner originally ordered it from the factory as a 4.0, 4x4, 5 spd, 4.10 gears, limited slip, with #1 bars. But it still had the horrible all black from bumper, and while I didn mind the rear bumper being all black, the front was just way to big and the all black didn't flow well.

I had a buddy spray it for cheap as long as I bought everything and supplied equipment that I had that he didn't. I do feel like I could have did a better job but I dont have a garage at the moment until it gets rebuilt here soon. Also in defense for him I did tell him that this isn't a show truck, I use and abuse my truck and it will just get scratched up so don't try and nitpick and spend tons of time making it perfect so I guess I cant complain.

Also the truck has only been washed once or twice this entire year lol so you will notice that the bumper seems a shade lighter than the rest of the body. But once I get it cleaned up and washed real good it will match alot better. It was dark out when I got it on so I dont have any good shots, but once I do ill add the before and after. Again because it was dark I didn't get any good pictures but I figured you all would want to see something so here ya go.

Looks good man, reminds me of a minature f-150. Same style of grille and the bumper is painted the same way.

Looks awesome

Default Re: Finally Front Bumper Painted

Thanks for the nice thoughts guys. I still gotta get the rest of the truck cleaned up and get some new pics but I spent all day at the big family farm doing work so I didn't get home until it was dark again.

And yeah its slowly coming along into what I was wanting it to be. Still need some more things but alot of those are still secrets haha.
