Painting bumpers,mirrors,fender flares and morea.

Recommended Posts

When it comes to attention detail, anyone on here who knows me knows im a clean freak. Always coming up with ways to make my ride stand out. Not on the 4wd side of it, but on the bone stock fixer upper staying bone stock side of it cleanliness.

LOL!! I appreciate them allowing me to continue on NPORA even though i dont go offroading. Kudos to you guys. Ive owned 3 R50's so by my 3rd one i know all the ways of painting or upgrading parts from newer Pathys and Q's. Apperence of plastic parts on the outside and the bumpers the grills I've tried everything and anything and as far as I know what I'm about to show you is probably the best but I've come up with so far. Get 3M scratch pad two cans of Rust-Oleum self etching primer and 3 Rust-Oleum mate paint. I went ahead and scuffed the entire trim on the truck including the metal bumper that's part of the front fascia. You might want get you some rubber gloves because your hands will be black after scuffing everything. After you do that you need to wash it with Dawn dishwashing detergent or something that will remove the grease, oil and whatever else you sended it off. Dry It Off then apply two coats Rust-Oleum self etching primer. Sand in between coats lightly. After the two coats dry and sanded lightly apply the Rust-Oleum matte finish and just follow the directions on the can. Wallah! 0b0f03f36661c2eb28027d15de4bbfe5.jpg94e409590e78dc2f91324fa461f62f51.jpgfd0b7be69cc178ec5de13736b86b9226.jpgb539183df57676e47aed3f6c00bf6fcc.jpg31a88a988f7b852a4d9e25401a4c01eb.jpgdbdf9c052e6317707c403a49bdbfbaf0.jpg80ed0733428d1402d5225ce7b9cf281c.jpgc10404b137c5cc4bdf1cd6003e02a84c.jpg2501f7291168268c174d4acb92d40832.jpg3b72d4c731a446cc5ad96365eed20bc1.jpg89c3113b5472b716e25f3069271967f9.jpg24d466fb0eff3b4eb009d67881c916e1.jpg238fdd16ff102293de9864fb9164f0fa.jpgf51135977338ad55ee771e46847d0461.jpg6be22212c064d9cf9b9e5be2cc4718c8.jpg

Looks good, let us know how it stands up to sun and weather, looks like an easy way to restore some of the trim on our aging rigs.

The end result looks very good, great work as always!  I'm with Kyle, interested in long term results too.  How long have you had it painted like that so far?

Ive had everything oh my Q painted for at least five months and everything still looks great. The key I think is making sure to put 2 coats of the primer and at least 2 if not 3 of the paint. I went 3 with the paint on both of mine. My Dad used it for his top on his Tracker almost a year ago now and it still looks really good.. It is garage kept though. Of course the anount of sun and weather as you know will im sure affect the long term results. Good luck.

On a sunny day the matte paint gives of a brownish hue on a side note.

I finally got around to doing a little bit of the painting on the trim of my 96 Pathy. 7 step process 1.Scuff, 2.clean, 3.prime(2 coats), 4.24 hour dry, 5.light scuff, 6.clean, 7. paint(at least 2 coats or more if so desired)
Using 3m scuff pad, rust-oleum self etching primer, rust-oleum matte black paint (Custom Shop) clean rags, oil and grease remover. I painted the running boards on my 97 Q six months ago and they still look as good as the day I painted them. 152108e648a5d9d41ee91ed2356cf053.jpg2c058b3e14b0e64724de2ef1295cfda2.jpg2d6c893b4d39b85d4b298695a8a8031e.jpga5d304185c23e22640bab48979c891c2.jpg1b33f17341a208e0bb709eedae28c5a5.jpgc786e83aa78aa37a5018c24f7da3bfe3.jpg9a6cc4fa27feff8983b17bc321852417.jpg

Looks great. Nice work!

When did you install a tire carrier? Dont think I've noticed it on your rig until now

Edit: just noticed it in the earlier shots. Its factory?

Thank you sir. Tire carrier has been there the whole time. Its factory. I own a Quey as well. That might be whats confusing you.

Just got done removing the fender flares, brush guard, and tire carrier so I can practice painting the stuff I'll leave on the car (side trim stripes, mirrors, pillars, etc). I have no idea what I am doing but this makes me feel more confident... it's not going to be a waste of time! Wish me luck, and cheers!

Good luck buddy. If using tape the green 3m 401+ works best in my opinion. The better tape job will totally reflect the paint so take your time and you should be ok brother. d81c2b6cda00c5cd667487a9a2834ab6.jpg
