    the newer cars and trucks have the plastic panels from the half door down and i was wondering if anyone had tried to put those on their k5's, or if they can be custom made, ect...

    i think some black/gunmetal colored ones would look nice against my trucks blue in particular

    You can get fiberglass fenders and hoods. I don't know if doors are available. That could lighten the truck up a lot. But are you talking about just restyling your rig?

    yeah, just for style

    having a contrasting color at the bottom in addition to the protection from door dings and whatnot
