Yeah, pics or it didn't happen [bootyshak

Anyway I stripped down my rear sub frame and painted it... Didn't take before pics, but did take a during pic:





It looked awesome until I added a second coat... Anyway it's a magnet off brand so you just put it straight onto rust after you knock scale odd and sand it down abit... Oh well, Tomarrow I'll sand it down abit and do some touch ups and paint some bed-liner on it so no moar rust!

fun fun...

Gave my 4Runner some much needed attention after a long winter. Just gotta take care of a few maintenance things and straighten my rear bumper piece and will be set for camping/4wheelin' season.

You try rust bullet ever? It comes out silver, but that stuff is A-MAZING! Hardens and bonds to rust, easy to work with, paintable and sandable, minimal prep and UV resistant. I used it on the inside of a Jeep YJ tub under rhino-liner. Unkillable. Nice job though!! It's so tedious doing undercarriage coating- gotta do our 06' soon, I feel for you.

-------------------------

Finished painting and installing my grille

Clear over plastidip definently works!





Came out kinda orange peely, but not bad for my first shot. Now I got a hang of wet sanding/polishing, think I might peel it off and get some proper black and primer and better rubbing compound and give it another go for a deeper black.

^Yeah I love it here in ohio, but the salt is killer, it's better to not have it, everyone has FWD and 4WD anyway... I havn't tried silver bullet, but I used some stuff that went on clear and turned into black primer, I really didn't like it because it seamed like the rust has to be in a certain stage or older for it to work properly...


Painted my wheels black with left over bed-ligner... I love it
