sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

Wednesday I had some free time after work and decided I have had enough of chrome and decided to bedliner my front bumper and grille, trying to remove the J-nuts was a PITA, snapped 3 of them thanks to dirt in the threads, but it was worth it in the end. I love the new look, helps I hate chrome with a passion lol

Before


Prepping


After I got done spraying them



Finished




Then yesterday I was able to swap out my ugly rear bumper for a bumper off of an 06 F250

Before


After



Now just need to get new headlights and wheels to get rid of everything that is chrome or polished

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

very nice!

Did you "prep" the chrome?
It may stick for a while being bed liner, but nothing sprayed on chrome is permanent!

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

I prepped it as much as I could using the materials my job has, I only do truck beds and other painted surfaces. I know to do it right would mean sandblasting it and going that route, but I plan to get a full front end replacement, so this bumper is only temporary

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

copy that
One of the reasons I use like Duplicolor spray can bedliner on parts like this is because they are so easy to touch up and no spray booth needed!
(chrome/ss parts need it often, once a year or so)
Scratching the surface of the chrome is your best bet then clean clean clean to make it stick, even then it still does not really stick
plus scuffing up the chrome is a PITA not easy to do alot of elbow grease

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

I hear ya there. I use a DA buffer with a cup brush to scratch the hell out of the chrome (saves time an alot less elbow grease involved) then use lacquer thinner and wiped it down

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

Looks good. I like the texture. What specific bedliner paint did you use?

Sorry for the late response, I don't think I got an email letting me know you commented on here. I used RhinoPro bedliner

Looks good now all you need to do is fill the mounting holes from rebadging it and then you have a complete ride

Re: sprayed bedliner on my bumpers and grille

The tailgate was actually like that when I bought the truck, I haven't done anything to it cause I'm going to get a '08 tailgate

That's a slick looking truck. Didn't go too nuts on the lift and I'm helplessly fond of the color green.....be it cash or camo.
