Big makeover week for our 2020 250 Eco! We've had more than 200 nights camping over the past 24 months, so we didn't have time for exterior makeover until now.

Started with Grill removal and taking lots of chrome plastic pieces out for painting.

Followed up with painting the slider rail:

You can't tell, but the 1/4" wide area where the roller wheel will ride was masked off, so it won't be going on new paint.

Also put on Ultra Toil Wheels to replace the factories. (Got new Agilis Cross Climates before our offroading adventures in Death Valley, Mojave Desert and Baja back in February).

Last week I installed OEM sway bar - should have done that much sooner!

Nice! Plan on blacking out my Carbonized gray too.

NVM, just saw your comment that you taped off the roller path. Looks good. I have those tires on my promaster. This year I'm going to try them in the winter and not install the my winter tires (blizzaks).

When painting - you only need about 1/4 to 3/8" wide tape strip to protect track area where your wheel will roll. It's easy to identify, based on existing marks.

I'm liking the painted roller track as well.
Thanks. It's such a better look, especially for my magnetic metallic rig.
Also consider painting the plastic end cap, since you'll have it off anyways. Mine was originally black, but was looking gray over time. It simply didn't look good with the brand new blacked out slider rail.
