Thumbs up Gave my ranger a bit of a facelift

The kid who owned it before me painted everything on the rims.. lugs, centercaps, everything haha. I dont even think he taped off anything, and he painted it horribly.. so I re did the rims and changed it up a bit.

also went to home depot and bought some of that gutter guard mesh for $2.16 and made myself a nice little grille for that bumper space

before..
(w/ the chrome lugs i had already put on)



after...

You should paint it black, it would go good with the rest of your black theme.

I like the gutter grille mod- I did the same on my front end there on my 04. You should sand down the front bumper, weld behind the holes, fill them in with filler and repaint. I've been happy ever since I did my front plate delete like that.
