    Did some things this week and was finally able to wash it today. They gave me an extra grill when I bought it so I played around with it. I think it will look a lot better when I do the BHLM. I want to get a Rad. Red Grill in the future. What do you think?

    Yea when I put the grill on it really made the headlights stand out. I may put the chrome back on till I get to the BHLM.

    Yeah looks good! I would do a black and red them just like you if my truck were red. But yeah, get a red grill surround and do the BHLM. That will look killer IMO!;)

    I'm hoping I can find someone locally to trade my spare chrome grill and chrome bumper for their black ones. My buddy gave me some vinyl to do the lower bumper but my skill was defeated by it. I was getting wrinkles everywhere so that went in the trash.

    It's an Offroad but the previous owner had a lift and tires and he works for Toyota. So he took that off and replaced it with the Sport wheels. He also had them paint the mirrors at one point.

    It's a mutt truck. I was curious how many would notice the base of the mirror is painted too where the Sports models are not.

    Thanks. I like that name.


    I appreciate it. There are no close ups of the grill because during the final coat I went to pick it up and it fell off my hand onto the fresh paint on the face of it. I sanded down most of it but some of the scratches you can still see.

    I used Rustoleum Wheel paint in flat black but its more of a satin look. The caps are satin black Krylon Fusion and the red logo is from the same caliper paint I used. The powder coat will give you a much more durable finish...I"m just cheap.:D
