Default Bumper Work

The bumper was really nasty looking (biggest sore spot on the truck). so i decided it needed to have some time spent on it. redid the whole thing with spray on truck bed liner!

you guessed it!

the stuff works pretty good. My dad used it on the inside of the stainless mud flaps he made and they've held up to rocks being thrown at em for two years. i did so many coats mainly because it said on the can that it more applications will build up texture. the texture is hiding many imperfections in the steel.

that was about a can and a half for just the bumper. it goes FAST. i used to use similar stuff on the frame of my Wrangler and it would take about 3 cans for just the frame!
