Second mod was the headlight mod I was scared shitless to do it but it also turned out amazing

First of all,
I saw the grey bumpers on the before and i was thinking "why the heck do you not like grey? It's awesome." I was quickly proved wrong as I scrolled to the after pictures. Very nicely done.

What type of paint are you using? I have only exstensively used Nason and it reccomends 2 days before a wash and 30 days before a wax.

Personally I can get a perfect layer of Krylon to look just as good as factory paint (spray can) It dries in about half an hour and you can wax it in a day...Also fix that bed liner...lol

Otherwise...looks great!!!!!

Haha thanks man I mean I woulda kept the gray but it was scratched and fading so I figured if Im gona repaint it might as well do it white to match the truck hehe

And I used the DUPLICOLOR brand primer and paint and Rust Oleum brand clear coat to do my bumpers I wasn't sure how long I needed to wait to do the wash and wax so I figured a week should be safe
