    Default Black front-end mods

    So I've had this truck for about a year now and I finally did some stuff to give it my own cool look. New black grille with new billet aluminum bowtie emblem. New headlights, turn signals, and side-markers. Used VHT nite-shades on the side-markers; pretty happy with the outcome. I got some weird lines after the first 2 coats because I'm impatients, but a third slithly heavier coat and a layer of clear coat fixed em up nice.Click image for larger version.

    Looks good bud! You should paint your bumpers black, I think it would look sweet!

    Oh yeah thanks man! btw your tahoe was my inspiration. I was thinking of powder-coating my toolbox and bedrails. How did you go about painting your bumpers?

    Looks great. I like the whole switch, but especially like the side markers.

    Mine came like that, factory paint. I repainted my front bumper last summer, just had some factory gray mixxed up when i did my fender flares and front bumper. I'm getting a new front bumper soon, I'll do a write up on how I paint that one. Plus I'm going to build a light bar once I get some other little projects done, so I'll have a write up for that
