I'm kind of getting sick of the old grille overlay that I have, was thinking about taking it off and painting the factory grill blue, anybody done this? I wanna make sure it won't look like total hell.

I don't like billet and I'm not looking to spend any money on this, my car is taking all of that.

are you talking about painting the mesh/honeycomb part blue or the chrome part?

I think painting the mesh black would look awesome.

I don't like billet either, and just painted the honeycomb black. Ive been asked numerous times if its a custom grille.

I was thinking that as well

I bent the bumper back somewhat, looks good enough, as far as colormatching the rest, I'd rather put the money into my car. I wish the truck was blue, 2 tone FTL. This color combo looks like ass colormatched.

I like that too, I've had big dreams of copying that idea.:hmm:

It's silverish I think and yeah the corners were done pretty crappy, I just wanted to do something different, it's not showpiece just a daily pos.

I ended up painting it blue today, it looks good I think, kinda dark to be taking pics of it now though.
