also if you don't mind me asking where did you get your tail lights.
I bought the taillights off of Ebay. I got a good deal, but you have to be careful that you don't pay more for the freight than the part.

If you can go to a salvage yard and find an OEM black painted bumper you can get those painted or powdercoated.
I know powder coaters that will do chromed parts however you have to get all the chrome off or it doesn't work well.

Avoid the cheap aftermarket bumpers. I picked a complete front set up on feebay; upper, lower, center steel and air dam. The only part on my truck now is the center metal, which was actually very nice. ALL the "plastic" parts however were not only flimsier than OEM, they simply didn't fit. Period. You can either pay the premium price...or pay cheap and then pay the premium price anyway.

So my body guy got better(if not OEM, I'm not actually certain) parts and, surprisingly, the ebay seller made good on the stuff that wouldn't fit. Which, BTW, is still laying in my shop and which I'll give to anyone who wants to pay the shipping if they feel they want to give it a shot.(as well as the factory top piece with two holes for KC's drilled in it).

Nice work on the tails! Im looking into starting the same project you have there, just curious what kind of prep work you did to get the paint to stick and to end with the nice smooth paint? not the texture of the plastic underneath.
