    going to just do the grille also.
    got the chrome and hate it so im going to just paint over it.

    i know i should sand the "chrome" off but some people have been saying that they just painted over it and mine is not chipping at all so ill try a light coat to see what it looks like.

    feedback? need all i can get.

    going to. tomorrow the day is mine and it will be gunmetal. i think that i might just do the chrome the gunmetal and just clear coat the black stock grille. i really like the look of it. that way the whole thing is shinny again.

    after im done ill take pictures of the truck clean too

    still to go:
    grille
    engine cover
    badges
    rims

    Just as an added opinion, I think the orange looks kick ass. I agree with above on getting rid of the chrome. Having seen the front badge change, I bet the rest are going to look awesome as well.

    project on hold cuz of weather but the engine cover is taped off and started. and all decals are off.
    what are the best way to get the little scratches from the fishing line?
    polish?
    clay bar?
    buff?
    wax?
