Talking Paint matched rear bumper installed...

and some frame painting

Well last week I finally dropped my paintable rear bumper off to be painted the color of the truck and I picked it up today.

I have been wanting to coat the frame with POR-15 as well so I figured this was a good time. I didnt get the front painted yet but Ill do that this weekend.

I got it all prepped and eveything and painted and then I put on the rear bumper and I really like the way it looks

Let me know what you all think!

Looks amazing as all of your project turn out. The bumper looks excellent. How do you apply the POR-15? Good work Matt.

Thanks Matt!

I applied it with just a brush. I used their marine clean first, then the metal ready rust converter from them and then applied the POR-15. Also powerwashed after each step of cleaning

Oh and dont be a dumbass like me and wear a cut off with rubber gloves when doing it. Wear long sleeves. I knew better too after the last time I used that or herculiner but Im a dumbass so now Im stuck looking like this for a while
