Thanks, I created a spreadsheet to keep track of all the work im doing, and costs... so far i have $2,502 invested in this truck, thats with me doing all the body work, and most mechanical work myself. Most expensive thing to date was the water pump, cause i didnt do it.... stupid shop charged me $500 and some change!

I would of gone with the black housing headlights. IMO they would of flowed better. I just picked up the same headlights for my Vette. How is the light output on them and also the cutoff?

The light output is way better than what my stock ones produced. @MS520, i am thinking of getting the covers for them, but havent decided, the truck when i am done, will have more chrome accents, so the current ones will flow a bit better by then. (hopefully!... lol)

Nice that sounds like a great plan.

I plan on adding HIDs to mine in the spring during the install. Shouldn't be too hard since it is H4 bulbs. I've done a ton of those installs.

The issue im having is my front end just doesnt look right and i cant figure out why. I know i need to do clear corner lights, cause they look out of pplace right now being orange, but the grill, i just cant decide how i want to handle it, should i modify mine, and cut most of the middle of it out, leaving the outer edge then inserting some chrome mesh, or doing the oppposite getting the chrome and black OEM grille and cutting the center and putting black Mesh in. I knowunder the bumper in the opening on the valance i want to put chrome mesh there, then the 2 small opening on the bumper i cant decide on chrome or black mesh.
