Postby Revel-z71 [OP] » Apr 30 2016, 5:59pm

I should of have started this when I bought the truck 2 1/2 months ago but I have already done a 2" lift level airaid Jr. with k&n filter and borla gm performance muffler. I have also plasti dipped my bow ties and rear lettering. If it will ever quit raining here I will do the Silverado in the doors

I have some new pics I have recently pulled the front end apart so I can color match the grille and headlight trim
This process will take a couple days just to get the chrome off cause you can't paint chrome. I have a thread on that process

I also have a new 12" borla xr1 muffler sitting in my garage. I don't really care for the gmpp muffler. This will be my next project. I will be cutting out the 3rd cat and running all new custom 3" pipe and dumping it right before the rear axle

Looking forward to seeing it when finished. I also chose the Borla XR-1 muffler dumped right past the axle. That XR-1 muffler is quality and you'll enjoy it, no drone associated with it.

Excited to see the color matched front end as well. I already have the color match grille but need to do the headlight trim.

That XR-1 sounds like it will be amazing but they seem to be a pretty penny compared to the Pro XS I bought for little of nothing. Hope it works out well and can't wait to hear it.

The headlight trim can be a little tricky to get off. Not only are there plastic clips but there is also double sided stickie tape. I needed 3 of those little flat head screwdrivers. (The ones that are a little bigger than glasses screwdrivers) to pop the clips open then leave one in each clip to keep the from clipping back together. I also used a small pick so I could reach between the trim and the headlight and tear the tape. Once you get it started it goes pretty quick. The first one took me about 30 min but the second one only took about 10 min. Just be real careful when you do take them off cause there are NO replacement trim parts the only way to get new ones is to order new headlights I wish I had good pics of exactly where the tape is. Also the little black strip between the lights is stuck on with one strip of tape and the 4 clips
