    Finished my Grillcraft upper and lower over the weekend, finally got home early enough daylight to snap a cell phone pic. I like it, although the horns will likely go next, to be replaced by something yet undetermined. Painting the inside definitely made a difference... you can hardly see anything inside, even in direct sun.

    have you thought about PC'd or painting the horn T emblem the same color as your truck...I think that would make your truck look even better...

    I did, even went to look up the paint code (8P1, IIRC) but then forgot about it until you mentioned it. Time to do a little photoshop work...

    I suck at chopping photos but got a good enough likeness that I'll add painting the horns SWB to my list of possibilities. Thanks!

    I relo'd both horns next to the battery to make room for some :D

    I'm glad y'all mentioned color matching the horns emblem... I would have forgotten all about it. I agree and think it'll look sweet.

    Anyone have recommendations for surface prep? Just rough it up with some medium or coarse emery cloth?
