    Default Need opinions?!!

    So about 20 minutes in photoshop and I came up with a few things I may eventually try to my truck. Any (good) opinions would be appreciated.

    I'm considering painting my bowtie (since it's been raped by rocks anyway)

    White to match the truck.


    Black to break up the white.


    I'm also considering smoking my tail-lights a bit.


    And finally I'm still considering debadging the tail gate.


    Also what do you guys think of the mirrors? I just finished painting them the other day.

    2010 OEM 20" Wheels
    Color-matched mirror covers and emblem
    20% tinted windows - 6" eyebrow
    Black rear fender-wells
    Completely debadged and demolded
    Duramax airbox replacement w/ K&N filter
    2" Rear drop shackle
    Tailgate light bar
    Flowmaster Delta 50 w/ double tip exits
    Blue footwell lighting
    12" Pioneer Sub (custom downfire box) 850W amp
    Full LED interior

    If it were me, I'd go with the white bowtie & leave the tail lights alone. You might as well de-badge the tailgate since you already did the sides. Mirrors look good too.

    If you decide to tint the tails I would paint the bowtie black, otherwise go white. I think finishing off the debadging would look nice too.

    Black one looks good, white seems a bit rainbow.

    Haha, I don't remember white being a color of the rainbow! ROY G. BIV, right? (I know what you meant) I think the white would match well, and besides, everybody & their grandma is driving around with a black bowtie. Be a little different.

    lol...just being mischevious killing time before my meeting. The white is ok actually, just think the black looks cool really, especially if it was done professionally with real automotive black epoxy and clear gloss epoxy (not rattlecaned), the deepness of the black paint is what would set it apart. Black wheels would look cool against the white truck as well. Blackouts...ehhh...that's one of those things that look ok on some colors, not sure against the white.

    Lol I don't think black wheels are anywhere in my future since I had to kill 4 hobos to get the wheels I have now.

    I think I like the white bowtie better but the only thing is that it doesn't really stand out against the chrome divider too well... But i'm pretty sure the badges are coming off. 1. They don't match 2. Everybody knows what the truck is already 3. There is a nice coat of wax around them that I can't get out.

    Therefore Young Grasshoppa you already know your destiny, we were but a mere confirmation of what thoust already knew.

    No but really, the white and chrome, you're right, that's what makes it kind of tough, didn't snap to that. I'm all for "we don't need no stinking badges" and stuff, but which badges? The tailgate badges? Those are some very nice wheels btw.
