    Nice! Liking the color matched fenders and bumpers. I have been having thoughts of how that would look on my nautical blue reg cab. The silver looks great.

    I used nite shades, bought it at advanced. Applied a couple coats then when I was painting my trim pieces I clear coated them when I cleared my bumpers and flares.

    Don't have to clear coat them but it does help protect. Probably could use the clear coat in a rattle can.

    Thanks I love my truck!
