New winch bumper prep and install

So i got my hands on a newly welded up winch bumper but no paint which was a good opportunity for me to see how good my spray painting was, so i got it prepped up by giving it a once over with sand paper and the sanding disk on some welds, a good clean with brake cleaner and the first coat of Acid etch primer made its way on.


Next was light sand, clean and a couple coats of waxoyl stone chip guard.


And finally and good clean and a few coats of Satin Black Plastic cote, hopefully i will get it all installed this weekend and post some pics..

This may be a stupid question, but what bumper is that?

That sticker is hiding a deep scare in the steering guard that should be off soon when i repair it and spray it black. Lol

Get with the times, it's schlitz now. If you can find it by typing in hipster beer on bing, you won't see my glassless-frames behind a can of it.
