    Default The Official Cheez 2004 Silverado Thread

    I decided it was time for a dedicated thread to show off the progress of my truck. Let's just jump straight into the pictures.

    When I first got the truck.

    It was pretty rough... This picture doesn't do it much justice. Small scratches ALL OVER THE PLACE. A nice wash got rid of most of these. A coat of wax took care of a couple of the deeper ones.

    I got my wheels on it. Genuine GM 20". Shortly following that was a 2" drop shackle.



    Got my sticker situation sorted out! Louisiana Tech Engineering and a Gary Fisher logo! Oh, and an asymmetrical parking sticker...


    Next was window tint, 20% in the front with a 5% 6" eyebrow, and a roll in bedliner to hide some wear in the bed.



    The new Silverado HD have some badging on the hood. I really like the look of this so I tried some of my own.

    Later the pinstripe was added.


    Next was exhaust! Flowmaster Delta 50 with dual rear exit tips.

    Sound clip!

    Tailgate light bar
    Flowmaster Delta 50 w/ double tip exits
    Blue footwell lighting
    12" Pioneer Sub (custom downfire box) 850W amp

    Now that I've got the truck about where I want it, time for the picture whoring. Just a side note. I claim to be a photographer in my spare time. I try to frame and capture with a photographer mindset on all my pictures. And now for pictures!

    Even dirty pictures look good!




    Some posing with the Camaro.




    A fresh wax!

    (I'm in love with that light on the hood)

    That's everything I've got up until now! Look forward to more pictures and mods!

    I've actually been going back and forth about doing that. I've seen it on here and considered it, I just don't know if I need all my lights on. Thanks for the info though!

    I love them too! $10 in stickers and a few minutes is all that takes! I see you got your new wheels finished. I really like the different but still stock look they have!
