    Whats up guys?

    Just posting my progress on the truck, as well as provide some insight on color matching, incase someone is interested in doing the same.

    Started out with a plain canvas (new phone, so I don't have pictures, before it was leveled).

    This is post leveling kit. Went with 3" front level, none in the back. Tires are 275/65/20 Toyo Open Country AT:

    Got tired of the chrome front and back, so pulled them off and painted them. Process was just a basic chrome process. I scuffed/sanded the bumpers/grill, used etching primer, regular primer, then coated with 040 color match paint. Came out awesome, and the black plastics really pop on it:

    Then, I was bored and wanted to try removing the B-Pillar panel vinyl. It was kind of dull, and scratched.. and I had been wanting to replace it with gloss black.. so I figured I'd pull it and see how white looks. I like it.. but may end up going gloss black in the future.
