Yea that's what I showed him and he's like I just don't like it. So idk if that means I can do it and he just won't like it or I can't do it lol. I hate having to get his consent on things. The only reason is cuz it's not historic tags and he paid for the tags and everything and it's under his name.

When It warms up to a better paint temperature I may go this route. I need to cover up the sheet metal from paint cracking and ripples and stuff and Bedliner covers stuff good to. Ill probably do it and I wana do my hood like this

For sure.. Im going to do my hood the same, its really good so you don't get glare from sunlight or off road lights at night. My roof rack lights reflect off the hood bad. Painting the hood like that would really help .... that's a good plan

So I got my dad on board with the 2 tone Bedliner and fender trimming. Will be doing that soon. I figured out my winch won't fit on my bumper because of the bullbar being to narrow so I'm gonna cut the bullbar off put the winch on and bend up a new bullbar and weld it on. I'm really thinking about a Exo cage because I know I could do it myself. We will see

I was thinking .... it may be worth it to use raptor line vs. spay can bedliner... it will hold up A LOT better and look pro too. And it will cost you maybe even almost the same. Raptor liner is pretty cheap, and one pack will prob be enough, and its under 130$. And you will use around $60 for dupi color, and you will have to redo it in a year or two.

look at this thread.. there are some good ones in here. http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyot...l-3rd-gen.html


You just have to make sure you take the time to prep well, and tape realllllly well with the right kind of tape and clean before you tape. If you do a ****ty job it will look ****ty, but if you do a nice job and spray it ... it will look reallllly good.

Holy smokes that thing looks good. You can't even tell it's Bedliner from a distance. That looks perfect. I actually made a final decision though. I've had good look with flat black paints. I think I'm going to leave my rockers Bedlined, and two tone like we've been talking about but using black paint, then paint my grill black and do this grill design in the same black paint. Grill and hood like this. All together I think it will look badass. And my birthdays coming up so I think I'm gonna get bolt on tube fenders and panel armor for my birthday that will get the same black paint and ill trim the fenders according to the tube fenders. No more noticeable dents and I think it will look sick to. Tell me what you think about paint vs. Bedliner. I know it's not as durable but my Cj was basically all spray painted and it help up very well. I took my time with it and it held up good and looked pretty good for what it was as well.

If you do it right it could look really good. If you rattle can it ....it may not look good .... If you get a compressor and spray gun it should come out really nice, but good flat paint jobs are hard. They are really a base coat & clear coat like your factory paint, they just add a flatner to the paint, to do that right it would cost about 300 in material, and flat is hard to spray. It takes skill because if its thicker in one spot than another, it will have a different finish. That's why bedliner is easy .... It's cheap and you can't really mess it up. If you want to go flat and have it look good for less than $500 you can get a body shop to do it and it will look pro.

I have a compressor and spray gun. Used it to spray a gloss black on my Cj. Not to bad either. But I might try flat black and if I can't get it right ill do Bedliner. We will see how it turns out
