Transformation Pictures
 
I don't know if its been done here or not did a quick search and didn't see anything so how bout we post a few pics of our trucks transformation. This might help other members on deciding what to do with their trucks.

So I'll start.

The day she came home

After some 22" rims and some 20% tinted windows

Then a color matched grill and VHT tinted tail lights

Then I de-bagged the truck then painted the inside of the headlights and Plasti Dipped the 22" wheels.

I think I'm going to color match my antenna base and get a U-pol bed liner next.

Feel free to post up your progress or ask questions.

looks good, did you leave the tires on when you plasti diped the wheels? I have been thinking of plasti dipping mine

Thank you everyone as you all know its never done.

Thanks MADDOG I did a quick search and didn't find a thread dedicated to transformation pics so I thought I'd start one. But if there is a thread out there and this one is just adding confusion I'll go ahead and have this one deleted.

@Marshallsmith44- I left the tires on while I sprayed it and I didn't even mask them just be CAUTIOUS when peeling the PD off the tires, I used a tire brush and some water and they came off easy. I've had it on there for about a month now and washed it 3x using soap and a rag and I have not had any peeling issues. best of luck

No worries...we just create our own threads on how we have, and still do, transform the trucks. I like the idea of members keeping their threads going on the transformations.

Since it's nice to have a thread per member, it's great that you started up your own.

Thanks MADDOG and I just looked over your thread and I gotta say that SRT 300 looks good. I'm just a poor E-5 in the Coast Guard so this thread isn't going to be updated with mods for a while. I think next on the list is a home made catch can, color match antenna base, and U-pol raptor spray on bed liner.

Thanks for the kind comments. That "money pit" has sucked a lot of cash outta my wallet!

But boy, is it fun to drive... :D
