    Did you get new fenders? In one of those photos they're unpainted.

    Good call. Looks like he did his fenders and flares in a bed liner spray can.

    I did. I ordered some new, unpainted fenders and Rhino Lined the new ones. Made a ton of difference and I get compliments on the new ones much more than the old rusty ones.

    Even better call that you noticed the flares in there, too!

    How do you the rhino lining? Did you look at other products? I’m thinking of doing my hood.

    I bought a gallon of the Herculiner brand at Lowe's and just rolled it on. I think I went out and bought a new foam roller because I didn't like the way the supplied roller was applying it and the new roller worked perfectly. I actually primed and then spray lined the fenders first and then did the Herculiner. They should be pretty much indestructible to anything now, let alone rust.

    It looks nice, I Had the entire bottom of mine wirebrushed and then replaced a few of the body mounts and had the entire bottom coated with POR. You can’t scratched the stuff with s screw driver. It’s awsome.
