    Hmm let me see if I can dig one up. Also, I had sanded down all the chrome on the grill, bumper, and corner lights. Notice they aren't shiny at all. Made a nice brushed metal look.

    Here's some that I have previously uploaded. I'm at work right now and don't have access to my home comp. I may have some close up's on the home comp.

    That looks really good! Did you just use regular spray paint? I think im going to plasti dip it. And maybe keep the emblem white.

    Hey what kind of fenders do you have? They look perfect! How much??
