I finally got around to clear my own headlights after finishing up some for some locals.
Truck is 2013 ECSB LT. Im looking for ideas to break up the front end a little bit, I feel like all the chrome, silver, clear headlights, and the rims just flow too well. Looking for ideas, or opinions to change it up a bit.

I'd smooth and paint the lower valence and either paint the grille mesh black or put a black billet grille in. Honestly looks pretty slick as it is tho.

If anything I'd look into the HD swap with the split grill

or find some ptm bumper caps to lose some chrome

The lowest valence is already smooth and factory silver, not color matched to the rest of the paint. Is that what you mean? I've been thinking of buying some vinyl to cover the front end to see what it will look like all color matched.

I've been keeping an eye on craigslist and classifieds for the parts.

And yea I meant paint it factory color vs whatever random silver it is. Idk how you could want to color match all that chrome lol.

Lulz I didn't meant the whole bumper. Just the caps where the fogs should be

Some trucks pull off the full chrome bumper but idk about the silver

Damn I'm torn between the two. Haha. I do like all the chrome but I feel like it looks really good but feels too much with the silver paint and the wheels. I think I'm going to color match the handles and mirrors and than go from there and demold as well. The matched bumper caps with the rest chrome looks really good
My 2010 ECSB 1500: Line-X GM color matched front bumper.

Nice truck man. I dig that front bumper. Looks mean. Interested in clearing your head lights?

Thanks man! Clearing my headlights is not high on my list of future mods at the moment. I think I will be swapping my faded stock black plastic door handles for a set of colormatched ones, I'm getting tired of always using the Mothers Back to Black polish. I'm still debating about whether to colormatch my side mirrors or not. If I do decide to colormatch the mirrors, I don't know if I want to colormatch only the top caps or the entire mirrors.

I think it looks better with only top half of mirror paint matched. I need to find a body shop to do some color matching for me or might try to do it myself

Damn Hunter! I really like the color combo on your front end. Mirrors look good with just the top matched
Appreciate it! I bought all the stuff to clear my headlights I just haven't gotten around to doing it.

Yeh I waited so long to do it and now I finally did it. It was easy. I'm just not sure if it looks right with all the chrome and silver
