This is a great picture! love that truck. You should take off the front plate, and weld/bondo/repaint over the holes.

My grill used to look like that then I replaced it to get Shane to shut up, lol.

Looks pretty good to me. You've got a good clean looking truck, reminds me of mine 5 years ago.

Good job man, how many coats did you do? I've used the krylon fusion before but mine started to chip after a while? maybe too thick of a coat or something? i'm not sure.
