Most of the time is prep.

Here's the current status

Pyroclastic touch up and new is done. Front grille and both front fenders got recoated once and I coated both gauge pods after cleaning and bulldogging.

stainless stuff is all epoxy primed after sanding and waiting for black.

bumpers are next for the sanding discs and pads and sponges, then epoxy prime and topcoat...tomorrow most likely

Ok so...2 quarts is not enough to touch up, do the grille and tail light guards, recoat the rockers, AND do the extra bumper.

Looks like I'll be ordering a gallon to do the front and rear bumpers - the front is sanded and primed with 2k epoxy - the rear will be waiting a week or so.

Had I not failed on the rockers when I did the original job, I probably would have gotten the bumper done too.

As a side note, the new coat of black is definitely shinier black than the original, but the truck hasn't been washed in a month. I just cleaned the spots I needed to hit.

After it cures for a week and I take the truck through the car wash we should see just how much fade there is after 12 months.

Pics incoming as soon as it's daylight.
