in front of my barn (yes i live in a barn)


90% perfect color match courtesy of PPG. paint mixed a little more beige than silver. can you see it?



it is much more apparent on the tailgate handle



i took the remaining 1/3 pint back and they added some more silver and then mixed up another 2/3 pint, which looked a little closer to the factory paint. i'm working on the flares right now.


ok WTF is with photobucket resizing everything? these were 800x600, but you get the picture i hope.

because i have a paint shop. the sandpaper, paint, primer and clearcoat to paint all the handles and 4 flares was under $100 and only took a few hours of my time. it 'aint custom if someone else does the work :read:

just wondering since the painted handles are pretty cheap anyways.


Oh, and AFAIK nobody cares if you have "custom" handles if they look the same as OEM ones lol :anitoof:

you missed the point... and obviously also missed the long discussion we had on the word custom. it might be a common mod, but i did all the work myself and enjoy doing things like that. i'm not going to pay $150 for handles when i can paint them for half that. i'm customizing my truck, so kindly :STFU:
