True. That's part of the reason I was asking if they were gona be decals, they'd look alot better without the reflection look.

if you need to do something different get a 01-03 Bumper and valance the edge one. you have shown you know how to paint, color match it.. wire the fog lights up.. THEN also get a Mustang GT hood scoop with the grill in it. paint the scoop trim the grill down and mount it... your truck will look so much better.. just IMO...

Please do not put racing stripes on your truck. If you are looking for exterior mods I would suggest some xlt manual mirrors color matched. As well as color matching the door handles.

The color of your truck is an attention getter enough by itself. You also need to be careful not to go too overboard.

I think racing stripes only look good on simple colors ie. red, black, blue, and white.

After doing the PS of them, they look Iffy, so the racing stripe idea is going in the trash. oh well.......gotta find something else now.... I was thinking of a 01-03 front end conversion......might cost too much though. I want to get a radio, but also want other things too, so I dont know what to get.

Mark, the front end looks fine, if you were to change anything on it i would only suggests upgrading to 01+ lights. I think your hood, grille, and bumper, all fit your street truck look.
