    Back in the day, we were taking next to perfect used cars and scuffing them down to paint. That was pretty much it. I remember leaving the trim on, or at least most of it, bumpers came off, tires came off, jacked it up in the air and in a weekend....you'd have another personality applied to your ride. Not so easy in today's world. So, I have an appreciation for just about any job due to the efforts applied.

    not to mention body work! a car can look perfect in primer, but spray on a little 'shiny' paint and you will see every nick, scratch and sanding mark, all the bad bondo work or damage you didn't even know you had. both rat rods and patina have been way overdone. don't get me wrong, its cool on an old pick up or van that's mostly stock and is used as a daily driver, but really tired of seeing junk with some chrome added at car shows. the patina on that van would of been nice if he didn't lower it and add big wheels. once you do all that work, put some fresh paint on it. just my opinion.

    Wow crazy. No rust on the van (yet), but burned right down to the primer....must have something to do with white not actually being a color and having no pigment. Fair skinned people get sun burned more easily...same with cars I guess.

    They are factory bumper guards. They were an option. They pop up on ebay once in awhile.

    I'm buying this one, they are supposed to deliver it on Friday 13th. I was thinking maybe leave it Patina? We'll see what it looks like close up soon. Of course I'll be posting pictures when I get it.
