    On a whim, I decided to get a head start on painting my Xploder. So I bought a can of spray paint, taped some newspapers to my truck, and started spraying. Before I ran out of paint, I had black wheels and a black grill. They came out very well, however I wish I would've sanded them first so they would look smoother... But I like them anyway. Next weekend I'm going to get the back bumper, and maybe start the actual truck. I decided to save a crap load of money and just spray paint the whole darn truck in a weekend. Just have to decide on a paint job, and remember to sand that paint down a bit.

    I also took off those stupid white and purple pinstripes I had. The passenger side ones came off without any trouble, but the driver's side took about an hour because it was just coming off in little pieces. AND I got that stupid bug deflector thingy off, and hopefully soon I'll be able to get my prerunner bumper, lift kit, and roof rack..

    Pics of my truck as of today:

    It's cool, Bob... I decided not to put it on anyway, gonna get a prerunner bumper. You can help me install that one if you want though /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif... I might be asking you if I can borrow your tools and... maybe your garage... If you don't mind... So I can install the lift kit I'm planning on getting soon, and a roof rack... Do you have a sander or something so I can take the paint off my truck and paint it?? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
