Default Painted grille inserts and lower grill insert

did this a little while ago but I haven't seen anyone else do the lower grill yet. just taped off the edge and the ribs and painted with krylon fusion spray paint, easily done and cheap way to personalize

Thank you. Actually replaced the tailgate emblem with a black decepticon emblem to black it out in the rear

Thanks, the spray paint I used is called Krylon Fusion, its specifically made for plastics and works really well. Its sold at WalMart and pretty much anywhere you find spray paint

What kind of paint is that that you use for the rims. I like it but I want mine in lime green to match the bumble strip on the back of my truck.

Not sure how to post a picture of my truck and you guys can maybe give me some ideas on personalizing my truck.

did you put different headlights and fogs in? The fogs look brighter in the picture. If so, what did you use?

put 3 coats or so of plastidip, wasn't enough tho. id recommend doing a few more. just clean the rims well and spray on the plastidip and your good to go. not sure if they make lime green tho, might be able to order it from their website

headlights are the stock quads with tinted corners.

the fog lights are D2S Projectors running 6k HIDs that I ordered from theretrofitsource a couple years ago, mounted to a sheet of metal and screwed that to the fog light bracket on the truck. theyre "shallow mount" projectors that fit perfectly in the small amount of space between the bracket and the bumper

they make a like, blaze green, pretty close. If not you can get custom colors as well, or color tinting kits. Im pretty sure those only work with the spray guns though. Not cans.




Also though, did you use any sort or primer? did you sand it?
