    I'm probably gonna do the same thing one of these days. Of course, I'm a fan of blacked-out front ends, so I'm kinda biased.

    BTW, you forgot to include a "Naked" option in your poll. That is against CK5 rules. Just thought you might want to know.......:whistle: :rotfl:

    that looks real nice with your color scheme, cleanly done without going overboard

    I also painted mine. I decided to paint the the same color as my truck. The paint has been on a year and is starting to flake in some spots but its no big deal to re-paint them.

    I painted mine also, but dont know how they will look considering my front end is not installed. Those blacked out fronts look nice though.

    Same, but I wish I'd of bought 2 cans instead of 1.:rolleyes: That 3rd coat would've made it look a whole lot better!
