hmm...candy tail lights can be cheap, did it to my blazer, under $15 for everything...ummm, you could also color match your GMC emblem if u wanted, the quadbeam high beam mod is under $20...thats all i can come up with off the top of my head.

You could go get some dupli-color and customize your interior. It could be a complete color change, or if ur good with your imagination a one off set of flames. You could also pinstripe stuff yourself if the imagination thing comes in as well. You can get anything relatively cheap...just start browsing swap meets and see what the goin rate is. When i went to the GM nats this summer i got a guy down to $80 for clear corners, the 454 SS style emblem, and parking lamps (i think i got a deal being clear corners are $30 alone)

im in the middle of painting my dash. for that, just take your time and sand it out rite the first time. make it all nice a smooth. then spray on a bunch of light coats of paint. and make sure you clear coat it as well.

total cost thus far: $15 ish.... about 5 bux for each rattle can (platics paint and plastic clear) and then a few more bux for some sand paper.

Billet Grill, air filter, gmfs sticker, clear corners, do some colormatching. You can do lots of things with not lots of money. Unfortunately I have not lots of money too :bawl:

Candy tails are usually on NBS trucks (to get rid of the amber). You paint the light this candy red color. I don't know much about it, but others can give you step by step on how to do it.
