Truck looks 100 times better! It is amazing what a little colormatching can do!

Cannot wait to see the next set of pictures :head:

The new Chevy 03-04 bumpers don't come factory painted, but the GMC's do. What's up with that?
Professional grade, baby! :rocking: :LOL:

I didnt sand the bottom part just coated it with filler primer and shot spray paint over it then cleared it (i didnt want to waste time on something i would be fucking up from driving so low when it gets bagged)

the top part i did sand down then good filler primer then sanded some more then borrowed a comprsser and gun and did it right with nice paint
(gotta re shoot because there is some small pin holes that popped up in the paint)

i plan on doing the headlights pretty soon but im going to be busy with the fiberglass stuff for a while

g-unit im still going to get it bagged unless something major happens but it will be in august and better be ready for LFT...

hmm got any close up pics of your bottom bumper? I know it'll show how big your body lift is, but i kindof want to paint my lower bumper, but i know its always gonna be fucked up b/c i drive low.

oh btw, looking good, i can't wait to see da bisch on the ground:rocking:

yea same place ekmw in houston (they do good work and dont hack shit up) i dont trust too many people cutting into my firewall and relocating alot of electronic chit plus they do alot of work i havent seen many places do or touch

i will take some pics of my bumper in the morning but its raining right now so i might rinse it off so you can see the texture better
white is easy to match, that blue you have might be harder but its not really worth it to spend alot of time on it if you drive low and scrape it alot imo

what do yall think about the grill left behind the billet? i painted it white so it shows up more but sometimes it overpowers the billet

cut it out or not?

cut it out:read: i think they look kindof tacky with the old grille in the back... looks kindof unfinished

my bumper would be painted the silverish color of my truck... well it looks silver in all of the pictures. Its really blue :pissed:
