paint

I'm looking at painting The mirrors, vents under the wipers, the black plastic in the vents of the grill and the factory black running boards all painted to match. Has anyone painted these and if so did you paint it your self and if so what brand of paint did you use? Or would you recomend to have a paint shop do it. If any one has similar pics that would help out. Thanx in advance

That would be sweet looking I think it would be hard on the running boards since the getting in and out would prolly scratch them and road wear. But heres a bump

I was thinking of using some type of grip tape on the raised parts of the boards to help protect the top of the boards.

And prolly the fronts of them from the crap and rocks that will come off your tires.

Check out Herculining my bumpers

This will be great for the step bars.

I plan to use it on my step bars and maybe have the bumpers powder coated. Looking fo black wheels online tonight. I love the blacked out look.

Good luck and post pics when done.

Oops! You want white and I was talking black. You know what they say about going black...........

For the running boards you might consider powder coat for the metal. Not sure what you could do for the plastic that would stand up to being stepped on.

I have the basic black plastic running boards. I was thinking that a few extra layers of clear coat would help with chipping and a few areas of grip tape to protect were people step. Now i just have to wait till the weather warms up.
