actually i have a 02 grille as the one in my video, but i have to spray again, I have some paint separation that accurred and its red with the entire middle being black, I forget the name of those grills, butterfly grill maybe idk, lol but i think the chrome makes it pop on the front of the truck, dont you think? as for headlight mod, you read my mine, thats exactly what i will be doing, both headlights/corner lights, Thanks Brother

yes sir, waiting for the paint to cure in 30-days and than i still have to repaint the front bumper because of the valance having some paint separation, i did the bumper bodywork months ago and use cheap primer, well my paint did not like the primer, so i will do it again and use the much better primer i used for the entire truck, than i will add the fogs.

p.s dont forget that i will be adding factory oem setup for fogs, and will be changing the entire engine harness and dash to achieve this, writeup coming soon

i agree totally with the clears, nightshade, I like it oem, Thanks I did it this way because it looks so damn clean, speaking about the grill/corner lights/front bumper thats is, yes explorer visors, 06 mirrors are badass i like them so much, Wow you serious, I have been contemplating putting on the emblems or keep them off, Don't know for sure, but wow interesting you say this as it has been a delemma for me. dirt dust was just for pics sake, I have remove it as the hood looks so damn good painted, I oainted it with 5 coats and 6 clear coats, wait until i cut and buff it, I should be able to see the reflection of the engine in it, lol

Thanks alot for your breakdown and observation, means alot.

Really my favorite thing to see it modded so heavy, but look factory, just way better. Have to know what your looking at to appreciate it, so you deserve all the props.

I've been thinking about color matching my mirrors all the way or just partially like the factory and you made the decision for me. Personally the truck is so clean the little hole in your fenders doesn't subtract from its epic winning at all. And you wh0re!, that hood is gonna look so good propped up, you'll have to drive with it like that fulltime

Truck looks great, but IMO, you should paint the door/tailgate handles too.
