Looks real good! Did you pull your bumpers or do them right on the truck? A small write up would be cool, if you have the time.

Yes write up please! Did you use a standard automotive clear? or the Plasti-dip glossifier?

Here's your write-up: just do it!

Seriously, there's two options. 1. Remove the bumper which involves some work. 2. Take blue painters tape and tape up the black piece of the bumper and make a wall of tape a few inches tall to prevent overspray.

I taped all my bumpers and it worked fine.

i left the bumpers on but removed the black plastic pieces. on the rear its real easy just pinch the tabs on the underside and it comes right off then on the front i remove the upper valance and the center plastic piece its east too just a lot of bolts. i just used regular clear enamel i did only two coats of that cause if you put the clear on to thick it starts to get a yellow tint.

i hear ya but can't tackle this bad boy until saturday because my parents are blazing into town. i think i am shooting just for the front for now since i only have one can of the 1d6 oem spray. my tailgate came out pretty good with the rattle can but go light on the clear and allow a day or two for good drying time between coats. http://www.automotivetouchup.com/cho...l=All%20Models
