After putting in my tailgate handle and oil change I decided to go ahead and paint up my truck! Here it goes...

First I sanded everything down I needed to with 400 grit sandpaper. Took 2 hours fully sand down the tow package and exhaust piping...



I didnt get any pics of it fully sanded or the area masked off since I was so excited and completly forgot... LOL

Heres the finished products!!!








And the what used to be ugly exhaust...





What do you guys think? Im sure a lot of people are saying its about time after looking at pictures of the ugly looking tow package, rear axle, and exhaust.

Oh yeah, all black paint on the tow bar and rear axle was Duplicolor Rust Tough Semi-Flat black spary paint. The black on the muffler was Black ceramic heat coating rattle can and the exhaust pipe/ tip was Aluminum ceramic heat coating rattle can.
