Updated the beater by painting the grill black and adding black powder coated wheels. Painting the grill was a pain in the ass and I hope the super duper high bond vehicle OEM black paint will stick to the chrome. BBQ grill paint started great, but was just too damn flat on the plastic. Hopefully the first carwash won’t blow all the paint off. I also moved the full size spare to the roof rack. It looks pretty bad ass. Can’t wait to take it wheeling when Sean gets off his ass and gets up here. I was an idiot for not ordering 33″s when I bought new tires last season. I won’t make that same mistake twice!

UPDATE: Got a car wash, and the paint stayed. WHEW!
UPDATE 2: The paint mostly blew off…. SHIT!
