Lotsa New GOODIES....Lots of pics...including stacks....

Shes been needing some TLC here lately....

Took the old ranchand brush guard off and we put it on my bros truck. Once it was off I installed the new smoked headlights, painted the grill white and installed Smoked 3rd Gen Dodge lights.





Going around the truck back when I first got it in 2001 I installed the cheapy clear side blinkers from Autozone. Well these smoked Ford Dually fender lights fit perfect in the hole those were in and Look TONS better imo.





My old mirrors had rusted up and looked HORRIBLE!!! So a little 60 grit sand paper and some flat black paint I did this..





Also while I was at it I bought some VHT night shade and tinted the tails and LED third brake light. Before I sprayed them I taped off the red reflector on the tail just incase someone ever said they didn't see red(THEY LIE)








LAST BUT NOT LEAST
I got my new 6" Miter Midnight Chrome stacks from Silverline(tm). I really think they just set the rest of the truck off:ford:

WOW, looks really good. I plan on doing my taillights this weekend. Is it hard to get an even coat using the VHT?

Easy just some advice.....spray it inside in the warm

Don't spray it out in the sunlight. It will dry before it hit and makes it look dull. It will be smooth as hell but just not look quiet as good

I'm not really a fan of the smoked headlights against a lighter-colored vehicle but the rest looks pretty spiffy...

I guess if the back of the cab isn't perfectly plumb, having the stacks plumb would look a little "off" but making the stacks crooked to match the cab would look even sillier.
