i got it all done for $250, although im not fully satisfied... they didn't sand it well enough so all the parts still have a little texture to em. you cant really tell though unless ure up close so whatever. i had to paint the grille shell cus i have the w/t 4.3l so it had that uglyass grey grille shell, which i have always hated. i didnt bother doing tailgate handle cus i plan on shaving it and putting a roll pan on at the same time. and i didnt have the fron bumper painted cus i plan on getting an ss bumper cover. but be4 anything, i am about to order my billet brill and new bowtie. lemme know what you guys think. once i get the billet on and clean and wax the shit out of the truck, ill get some good pics up.

Looks great man.

If you are concerned about the texture on the handles, i'd just buy the pre-painted GM ones. I'm sure the shop will lay it on you to have the re-done, plus the finish of the GM ones are smooth and the paint is heavy duty.

a little body shop in Los Angeles. they were repairing the side of my bed and cab post... i hit a bitch of a pole in a gas station. so i figured it would be a good time for some colormatching.
