I pulled off the grille surround and taped it up and then just painted the grille after doing the appropriate prep work.

You can get the paint mixed in an aerosol can from Napa.

Looks great man! Truck is super clean to. You should cut your tail pipe back some so you can't see it, I think it would clean it up a bit more.

I've thought about it but this summer I'm going to throw on a Magnaflow or something so It'll just get dumped over the axle.

Something about 06+ tails just doesn't do it for me. I'll stick with my current ones.

I did it in a weekend. Only reason I took so long was because these were an extra set of lights that I bought. You could easily do it in a day if you had all the supplies there and ready to go.
