when its done right it looks good if to much it looks like a Mexican mobile and most people here in NY dont know how to style a truck so it usually come out trashy and tacky

yes i did everything to myself, i always do my own work. ok heres the deal

grab a can of rustoleum flat black tape of your paint spray all the plastics and the chrome and everything on the front end along with all the chrome and plastic on the rear bumper

for the grill i removed it and sprayed it off the truck


EVERYTHING GETS TWO COATS

paint...dry to the touch(dont cheat) then paint it again and wait then install and be happy
