    Default It's been a while...bumper and grill are now painted.'s been a while since I've been on here.

    Anyway, I installed this bumper back in May and figured I'd have it painted in a few weeks. Then, weekend after weekend we just had so much going that it never got done. I was sick of driving it in primer and all mismatched.Finally got some time to get it all painted and installed. All done with DuPont Chromabase paint/clear.I'll get some better pics soon. Still plan to re-paint the 'grey' portions out as this factory grey looks a bit rough. Gonna paint out the GMC emblem grey too. Then all that's left is to paint out the door/tailgate handles and get/paint a roll pan. At that point she'll be pretty much done other than some little things here and there.So here are the pics after I got her installed and washed...

    Big thanks to my dad for letting me use his garage and for his help in getting it all done.Hope ya like it. Any comments are certainly welcome.

    It looks great. Looks like a sport edition or factory SS model that we know they didn't make .

    That's next on the list along with painting out the handles. Once I get that done, she'll be about where I want her...unless I run into crazy cash and could 'bag' it. But I drive it daily, so I really just want to keep it reliable.
