    Smoked tails look bad ass on light colored trucks, and black will probably "pop" more as far as the bow tie goes. Leave the badging for now, I think it looks better since you left the side moldings on.

    Truck looks good, I think clear headlights would make it look even better.

    The smoked tails are still under consideration. I've used VHT on an Eclipse I used to have but after a few months it turns purple, and if I did smoke them I would have to find some LED bulbs.... Safety First!

    As for the bowtie here's an idea...

    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

    That looks good...as far as VHT goes, I've had mine done since March and it's been parked outside the entire time-no color change at all, probably needs a little clear coat touch up but thats all.

    Yeah and if it's on stock chevy lights they're red. My eclipse lights were clear with a red LED for the lights... Either way I don't think the black lights would go good with my chrome/white theme.

    I wanted to see how many threads there were on bowtie color change projects. Answer? Lots with hundreds of thousands of views combined.
