Project Face-lift... custom grill

before...


during...


after...


-Still need to mount the lights

what do you all think?
option 1. finish it out with a BHLM or
option 2. paint thinner the grill to give it the chrome billet look, and leave the headlights.

Looks good, and those fenders don't look half bad on your truck.

Looks good. However, it flows a lot better all 1 color. So I would suggest:

1. Leave everything chrome.

-OR-

2. Paint the chrome KC covers black to go all black.

-OR-

3. Paint the chrome KC covers black, but paint the "KC" logos super white.

Nice work. I thought about doing something like that on a '11 grill.

Interesting idea... I'd lose the chrome on the KC covers. Either black or superwhite to match the truck. Otherwise, nice truck!
