New grille and painted grille guard

I bought a used grille a while back that i painted black to replace the one i had on my truck. Mine was cracked in several places and the chrome was coming off. I decided that this past weekend i was going to take the grille guard off and sand it down and repaint it since it has a lot of scratches and some rust forming. and while i had it off it was the perfect time to replace the grille. It wasnt the best weekend for painting, was kinda cold with wind blowing and rain off and one a couple times, so i got a few runs in the paint some of which i sanded out but i was running out of time and it had to be back on the truck since i was bringing it back to school. anyway onto the pics.

tear down


sanding


i decided to cut the lower bar off that had been bent for a long time.


out mushroom hunting


truck looks weird in this pic


grille back on. i was going to do the bumper to be decided i didnt have time.


all back together minus the lights.

Thanks guys! I like the black grille a lot better than the old chrome one.
