    Word... I guess I'll prep them myself, then take them to the painter. Maybe he won't be so hesitant to paint them then.

    That was the biggest complaint that I got from my painter was all the time it took for sanding.

    When I had all my color matching done it was around 600. Flares, front and rear bumpers, grille, and mirrors

    Fixed that nasty bumper gap tonight. I'll post some more pictures tomorrow of how we did it.
    But, for now....

    A buddy of mine here locally, recently opened a custom fab shop. So I called him to help me out.

    We cut the frame horns off, moved them up 3/4" and welded them back on. We also used some 1" angle iron to add some strength back into it.

    Turned out exactly how I wanted it to.

    Looks great.

    Truck is extremely clean.

    What're your plans for the mirrors?

    Thank ya!

    Not real sure what to do with the mirrors yet... Can't decide between SS sports, or CM'd OEM?...

    OEM. I hate ss mirrors. Just look out of proportion.

    Still looking for pictures of a white nbs silvy w/ SS mirriors to compare. I found these pictures that show CM'd OEM mirrors.

    Looks pretty good!

    If I do CM'd Oem, here's my options with what I already have..

    I have a set of Oem with the caps that are on the truck now (the caps are pretty rough, dents and what not), and I have a set of WT package Oem's that the glass is scratched to hell.

    I could,

    A: find replacement caps that are in good condition, then have them painted.

    Or....

    B: Paint the WT mirrors and use the good glass from the other Oem's.

    I'm not sure how the WT mirrors look painted? I have never seen them done (not saying it hasn't been done, just haven't seen it...)


    Here's what the WT mirrors look like. All 1 piece housing.

    The more I sit here and think about it, I think I will get a can of white plasti-dip, and shoot one of each style Oem mirror.
    Then I will have a better idea of what each will look like, and be able to just peel the plasti-dip off when I'm done.

    I say paint the none w/t mirrors all white. Then if you want to down the road swap out the caps for chrome and vise verse
