Good Idea or not?

I just bought a polished black Warn Combo brushguard for my 84 Blazer and after a few wheeling trips the paint is starting to fade and rust. I just recently had an idea after my brother had a Rino Liner sprayed on the back of his truck. Has anyone ever tried to spray it on their brushguards? I am afraid it will look like crap if I do so. Also I thought about maybe putting it around the cover of my Warn winch but I doubt that is a good idea if i ever need to take it apart. It sure would last a lot longer and protect a $900 winch. Any replies are greatly appreciated.

Re: Good Idea or not?

I've seen it done on a few rigs I wheel with. Looks good when done right. If I were you, I'd pull it off the front of your ride, pull the winch off and have at 'er. Bear in mind, that the more time you put into surface prep, the better it'll adhere. I dunno what kind of finish they put on those guards, but I'd rub it down with some alcohol to eat any clearcoat that may be on it, hit it with some sandpaper, and then wipe the sanding dust off with more alcohol.

Ive been thinking about painting my bumpers with paintable undercoating. Same stuff I used on my floor when I took the carpet out. I still have to build my bumpers. I have 2 inch square tubbing with 1/4 inch walls. pretty heavy stuff.
