Paint match options

Paint match options

Postby fuzznuts [OP] » Oct 10 2013, 6:35am

Debating on either paint matching the bumper end caps or the small bar between the end caps right under the grill with a hole in it. As someone on here once said trucks like mine look like a moving black hole from the front. Also thinking about experimenting with hydro graphics for the bow tie if anyones had experience.

I think color matched front ends on our trucks look great...I would do it. Been debating it myself :)

Yeah just can't decide which section to do. Want to keep some of the evil blacked out "Mad Max" look. Body shop in my area wants almost $250 just for the small metal bar in middle of the bumper so I'm afraid to check on the end caps lol.

A little bit of color matching helps to break up all of the black.
Hydro Dipping some components might look a little obscure unless there is a good theme going (similar colors, a few pieces around the truck)
