Thanks for the link. As soon as I started reading it, I remembered it. Did you ever sell your grille?

Stopped in today and caught them in the act of meticulously re-assembling my truck. The newly painted fender looked great, but considering the lighting where it was sitting, it could have been lime green and still looked great, so we'll see when I can get a look in the sun. I took a couple of pix, but the light was so bad photographically, you can't even tell it's a pic of a truck. It was booked with the auto trim shop for this afternoon to have the 3M clear protectant added. I am expecting a call tomorrow morning.

I'd be lying if I said that yours had no influence on my decision to go this route. Thanks for modding yours faster than me. It has made some of my decisions a lot easier.

LOL. I have enough spray left to do about 5 more sets, so if you send yours to me, I can paint them up for you. The shipping will only cost you 3 times the cost of the Shadow kit.

I did get to see the front one today, and I really like it!
Hopefully tomorrow I get it back....in fact I'd very confident tomorrow is the day because tomorrow's weather forecast is absolutely miserable...

Well, I got my truck back today, so it's the first time I've actually got a good look at the badges since I Black Chromed them. Here's the pix -

Tailgate in extreme sunlight -




Tailgate in diffused evening sunlight -




And a couple of the grille badge in evening diffused light -






Overall, I am very pleased.
I did notice that there is a slight green hue to the badges under certain direct extreme sunlight conditions, but since the paint has multi colored metallic in it that includes green, they blend very well. You can only see the green hue under certain direct sunlight conditions, and pretty much have to be looking for it to notice.

If my truck was 'true black', I think there may be a bit of a blend issue, and I would be wary of using this product on large surfaces, so have already decided that I will not be using it to Black Chrome my rims.

Having said that, I will be using it on other smaller items on some of my other vehicles.

jdubsss....I don't know what to say. I'd be hesitant, as the mirrors are a rather large surface, and I believe the green hue would show up against your white truck. If you can get a mirror from a wrecker to do a test run, I would recommend that before committing yourself. The Shadow kit is under $20, so if the test proved bad, your not out a bunch of cash.
