my sport inspired mod
 
Well I was sitting around.bored today and decided to.get creative.

I busted out the sandpaper, adhesive promptitude, primer and.color match and went.to.town on my grill. Between some house work, painting some interior parts and drinking some.beeri have about 11 hours of work into it.



I sanded the heck.out of the stock chrome plateing type of thing hit it with two.coats of promptitude, then 4 or 5 layers of primer then sandedbit real smoothed with 400 grit before laying.about 5coats of color over it before laying some clear over that.

When I first held it up to my truck.it didn't match at all and.I was pissed! But then I realized my truck was so dirty it was almost a shade.of.gray lol. I washed the front of the hood and.bumper and.Viola it matches perfectly

I'm washing and waxing the truck.tomorrow so you'll have to wait for good camera pics until then:wavey:

you should paint the grill bars black! look at mine, it makes it have more depth in the front end. looking good though! I have been thinking about color matching my chrome grill as well.
