I got to thinking about what to colormatch on my truck and it seems like there should be a thread for colormatching seeing as how everybody and their brother on here does it.

Post

-What you color matched

-What you paid to have it colormatched

-Any parts you bought so they could be colormatched, where you bought them, what you paid etc.

This should be a good collection of pics and help others decide what they want to do based on looks and cost.

Bought front and rear paintable bumpers off a work truck model. Painted bumpers, HD grille, bumper cap, mirror caps, door handles, and tailgate handle. Paid $225ish for everything to be smoothed and painted.
Bought bumpers new from certifit for around $120 each.
Swapped my chrome mirror caps for some black textured ones at body shop
Peeled the HD grille by hand with a razor blade then smoothed it. No chrome was painted on truck.

Quick silver metallic. Local paint ship will put your paint code in a rattle can for $11. Already had sand paper. Sanded smooth and sprayed.

- color matched front and rear bumper pads, grille shell but kept chrome, mirrors kept chrome, tailgate handle and tailgate cap. I already had escalade door handles.
- Paid $300 although its not as smooth as I had wanted there is slight texture but I was told that prior to having it painted that he wasn't going to smooth it completely out. I may buy a new front bumper pad since its old and there are a few cracks in it so may get that fixed one day but for now its fine.

I've got an 06 and I want to paint the exterior handles and grille shell. Where is the best place to buy these?

Smoothie bumper, I did all the work myself (custom notches for fog light mounts, stripped, primed, painted, sanded, and repeat) Spent about $100 on materials.
