project stormtrooper

Postby kajunboy89 [OP] » Feb 15 2012, 1:31pm

so, decided on a levelling kit. now, to decide what else to do. Undecided if I want to do white or chrome door handles and chrome or black rims. I do have black running boards. I do want to paint or plastidip my bumper pads and that top part of my tailgate and my badges white to match the truck. Problem is, I cant find white door handles or mirror caps but I can find chrome. Thats pretty much the only reason I would think of putting chrome. I really like the "storm trooper" look of my sierra. any help? and will white plastidip look good on my bumper pads and badges?

Go with the black rims and give the plastidip a try. You can always peel it off if you don't like it.

As cheap as the Plastidip is you can try different colors. Go black theme ( preferred by many ). Run it for awhile. Get tired of it , peel and go the white theme. Thats the beauty of it. Like to see some pics of your project when your done though.

if you're like us Home depot has only BLACK plasti-dip in stock. Not sure why. Look in the paint section, by the kyron, and rustoleum spray paints.
