    Default Painted Grille

    Well, I finally painted my grille. I'll be taking it off again to finish up the top, but other than that, I think it looks awesome

    Before:


    During:



    After:



    Spots that need to be painted:



    And the one spot of overspray because of my ****ty masking job:


    Tomorrow, I might do the bumper, or on Sunday. Depends on how ambitious I get.

    Looks awesome, more like a complete front end now. Got any pics of the entire truck, just from looking at the front it makes me want to see the whole thing.

    The little things you can do to make a truck look even better. Looks good, post more pics if you paint the bumper.

    Here are a couple of the rest of the truck. I'll do a photoshoot sometime this weekend.







    This is what she looked like when I first brought her home:



    I've only had her since April, and I've already put almost 10K on her.

    List of stuff done:
    Painted Grille
    17 inch wheels with 33X12.5's
    Air Raid intake with K&N filter
    Removed bug shield
    Removed bent lower valance
    Built custom center console
    Installed my old tool box
    Kenwood CD/MP3/SAT headunit installed

    And a list of stuff I want to do:
    Lift (probably a 4"/2")
    Custom front bumper
    Headache Rack
    Exhaust (supposed to have it next week!)
    Line-X the rocker panels
    Power Option swap

    I'm lucky that I have a friend who had a full size chevy too, because I got a lot of these parts from him for basically nothing.

    They rub when I am backing up and turning to the right. Otherwise, they are fine.
