Not really tech. But since my parents have given me strange looks as im outside spray painting various things on my 100, i figured id ask

1) am I overboard with the spray paint?
2) what next :hillbilly:

also, my dad said "nobody spray paints stuff on a 65K truck". Id like to see a few other people speak up and say what they have painted.

Its only a few things. not "overkill", but id like a few opinions on the location of the painting and what I should do next...the rear emblem is drying, and its raining tommrow. Should I put something over the holes?

I spray-painted the D-pillar vents, the grill, all of the door trim, the mirrors, and the center of the hood. I agree you don't do it on a $65K truck, but mine was only $16K and it's probably worth like $12K!

Any pics of the hood? I'm interested. Maybe a matte silver on my hood.

I did the rims, grill, front and rear "sombrero" emblems (removed the rest), rear bumper cover and side mldg. Wife thinks I'm an idiot, but like has already been said, it's not a $65K truck ANYMORE!

I am just getting ready to spay my roof rack....it's peeled off and has a silverish color...wondering whether to remove the rack and paint or just cover the roof and spray while the rack is on...

Remove it. It takes 15 minutes if your retarded. Taping your WHOLE roof off would take a roll of tape and a weeks worth of newspaper.

through the river and over the woods.
Did my grille before I rhinoed it, wheels before I powdercoated them, roof rack, sliders, all emblems, lip under my front fender, under my tailgate and my third brake light. All in some sort of not-so-glossy black paint.
