    Looks good, i would have kept the chrome part of your mirrors chrome though. I think it would have looked great, just pop off the cap, and then paint everything else, then just pop the cap back on. What you got planned for the tailgate handle?

    Hmmm. I didnt think about putting the chrome caps back on.....the tailgate and door handles are going to be shaved eventually.

    I have to buy the flip kit and door poppers still.

    Sounds good, i would really think that having the chrome back on the mirrors would make your truck look like a million bucks, i don't know, just that color and chrome, just makes the vehicle seem like it's worth so much more, and look so much better! Glad you like the outcome.

    Dude i really like the outcome of this. kinda got me thinking hmmm...LOL

    I would put the chrome caps back on as well. With that color and then the chrome caps, talking about knocking your eyes out...I think it really would look sharp.

    just my humble opinion.

    I have to agree with the other fellows. The chrome would look awesome on your truck. Really make it stand out. Should look great when you shave the handles of the truck.
