looks good, but the white is to bright, you should have bought a little can of oxford white paint.

if i was you i would also take the lower part of the valence off, it looks soo much better.
look at the last page of my SAS thread if you want to get an idea.

sanded it painted it with dupli-color primer, sanded again painted with dupli-color acrylic enamel spray paint.

Just wondering but what would be the easiest and cheapest way to raise the front up to be level with the back?

well, if you want to go up, get some leveling coils and longer shocks.

being that its a splash, i would just lower the rear down along with the front.
they come lower in the front, i don't remember how much, but i think its an inch.

you might be able to get some stock xlt coils(i have some i will sell cheap), but again, im not sure if that will lift the front.

Can't he just flip his rear shackles and it would lower the rear?

Yes he can, that's what I'd do Splash's are meant to be low. Valance looks better than before.
