Blacked out...
 
I am trying to do way with getting rid of the chrome on my truck. I found some mirrors that were the black plastics on craigslist but they had one side or the other and different styles so that didnt work. I ended up getting a nice Primer/Satin Black spray, sanded the mirrors down and masked off.... as well as my tail pipe tip ( hope to get duals later down the road )

The tail pipe looks great.

I wasn't sure about the mirrors at first, but after restudying the pictures, I'd say it's a good mix. To me, chrome or polished stainless looks best on Blue.

Check out Wermbang's truck on this site. He's done some nice blackout work as well.

I like it. I'm building a step side and insisted on blacking it out. I'll spit shine her tomorrow and post some pics of my Warlock III, by Warlock III.

Nice work Octavio.

Thanks, The mirrors were stainless. I tried to find a pair of plastic sport mirrors but no one had pairs just one side or the other... so these got painted for now...nothing acetone wont remove in the future, lol. I think the sport mirrors look better anyways too. I am debating doing the gas door, what do you guys think?

My gas door is black...go for it!
