Toology87's 2010 Silverado

Postby toology87 [OP] » Sep 23 2014, 12:19am

After quite a bit of support from the community, I've decided to go through with this build, so I figured I might as well make a thread for it. So here's the truck from the beginning up til now. I have some smoked halo projectors on the way and actually just ordered the galactic empire decals, only 12 bucks for 6 of them. And the list mods to come.

-Ultra phantom wheels or Paint match the silver on current wheels (undecided)

-Rough Country 1.25" body lift
-Tow mirrors (most likely will color match them)
-Window tint and white dash kit from rvinyl.com
-Black upper billet grill insert or plasti dip current insert
-Black air dam insert
-Bully Fuel Door Cover (black)

-Plasti dip chrome on rear bumper white
-Bed liner on running boards
-LED lighting; interior and exterior. Except headlights, but turn signals will be done.
-Other storm trooper/galactic empire accents for interior.

Found these on ebay. About 50/50 on the seat covers but 100% on the steering wheel cover.

As for the other interior accents I'm thinking of putting the empire symbol on the steering wheel where the bowtie is at or changing the bowtie to white, and if it will fit, putting the symbol on the power button for the radio.

I'm sure i'll end up thinking of other mods I want, but for now that is the project.

Now, for the progress so far...
Day one.

About a year later finally got some new wheels and tires.

Shortly after got the RC 2" level and wanted to go taller and got the RC 3.5"

Put some plasti dip on all the badges shortly after that during this past summer and went and bought some Rustoleum roll on bed liner and lens tint.

And finally decided to demold her.

That how she is as of now. Ready to get this project started. And does anyone know how I would go about trying to get some sponsors for this build? The way I see it, wouldn't hurt to ask. I'm getting the stuff either way. Would just be nice to have help if possible. I'll keep everyone updated! Oh.. and hopefully can get a big majority done before the episode XIII release in 2015, and take it to the midnight showing.

Halo projectors came in!!! Have to wait until sunday or Monday to install them though. They're not as smoked as the picture on the website made them out to be, but should look fine.

They don't looked smoked at all in this picture but they should look good.

Looks like a good start, but personally I think fuel doors should be body colour. To me they look tacky when they are chrome or black (when the trucks not black)…

I like the fuel doors IMO but I'd look into one that locks. You never know what could happen. A Star Wars hater could see the truck and put crap in the gas tank. Hahaha idk. That's just how my mind works.

I'm thinking of debadging her too. I think it would look better since I have that black strip in the bottom of the truck.
