Its not going to match the paint of the truck but the plan is to match the bumpers , step rails and door handles. With 8 coats of tint, and Im planning on putting 3-4 coats of clear, Im expecting it to hold up pretty well.

That does have a sweet looking color to it, definitely can't wait to see it back on your truck!

Carquest here does paint matching, if you're planning on painting to color match you will want to get a good primer to start, prep will determine the longevity of the final paint to not chip off.

So not to thread jack, but if I were looking to paint some chrome mirror caps, should I just paint over the chrome or sand it? Also, anyone have any idea how well I could expect the stone white to match up to the rest of the truck? Like I said, this thread is starting me on some new projects.

That looks really good. Is it going to get glossy with the clear?

Well I gambled and I lost, I will be buying a new grille today and putting this one up for sale. The paint job itself turned out great but IMO it does not look good on my truck,

I agree, the paint job does look good but I guess it just doesn't have the finish you were going for? Time for a color matched sport grille?

Bummer. Well, it did come out good but I agree it just doesn't look quite right. A color matched sport grille with chrome horizontal slits would look killer with your chrome accents

I had a perfect condition, color matched with horizantal chrome bars sports grille goin on E-Bay for $130, I got out bid by in the last 5 seconds then I tried to bid and I was going so fast I hit the wrong key and lost the bid. That guy got it for $139, I was so bummed.

I like the emblem, just not the whole grille. Hope you find something you like.
