    Go to a place that sells black bristol board,cut out a logo and tape it to your grille.See what it looks like on your truck before you decide to paint.You may want to get other colored board for comparison(white,red etc...).Also look at other similar colored trucks when you are driving around,might give you ideas.

    I'm actually taking my truck into a custom shop and thats one of the things I'm going to do. I've a white silverado and eveything murdered out well except the paint job. I'm sure it'll look good I love the black bow ties so thats my opinion
