Black rear bumper done
Knocked off another project on the list yesterday. I finally painted the rear bumper chrome black. I was not able to remove the bumper like I had planed because of the spare tire crain (not sure what that thing is called) I did however remove all the plastic trim to find that the chrome pieces are riveted to the bumper metal so I could not remove them to try & pound out the dent in one corner of the chrome. So with it taken that far apart I just covered the back of the truck in a large plastic sheet did my prep work & painted it as is. I didn't think the results would be as noticable as they are I'm liking the outcome I desided not to paint the plastic parts because if I used them to step on like they are for the paint would not hold up well. I've seen alot of trucks now with a bluish light for a tag light, is that just an led or what? Would is just be a bulb swap or more involved?
I seen the headlight mod done & now I'm thinking about doing that next heres a picture of the results I'm looking for. My problem now for this mod is the long drying time for the silicone to put the headlight back together.

I'm still debating on the headlight mod since I have the black grille & everything I feel it might be an overkill kinda the reason I'm not considering tinting the tail lights. although I would like to remove those ugly amber pieces & just use an amber light for turn signals. I'm not exactly looking to the murdered out look as its called lol.
Thanks TexasTechRaider. I think my painting skills are about 20 feet. Which means it looks good about 20 feet away lol. But its the best thing about doing it yourself, if you don't like it later you can do it yourself again lol. better than paying someone else to do a ok job.

DIGS16 I was looking at your list in the signature, what kind of drop do you have on your truck? I was thinking about a 4/6, I may be the only person in the world that actually likes the rear raised like the factory so maybe a 4/4 so I can keep that look but closer to the ground. I was quotes about $1300 for a local shop to drop my truck with a 2/4 kit, which is why I'm still a 2wd up in the air.
Also the chrome bowtie at least on the tailgate this may work did for my dad. The plastic cover fell off his tailgate bowtie & it was just a chrome piece all the gold was on the cover. Just an idea, when I pulled mine off to paint it, it to fell apart like that also.
