    After a year of owning my truck i have finally named it the BIG Easy. I have done a lot to it in the last year and thought i finally do a build thread.

    This is how it came when I bought it.

    I also used Duplicolor primer, paint and clear to finally do the chrome cup holder and gear shifter bezel.

    Pics of finished mods. I always hated the chrome steps on my truck and got lucky when a member of my truck club was selling his black ones.

    Nice job! Did you have to prep the chrome cup holder first or just primed?

    Great looking truck, I’m appreciative of all the detail guys are posting as I’ve just purchased a new 2019 SR5 Tundra.

    I went over it with a 440 super fine sand paper and cleaned it with prep all cleaner before prime, paint, clear.

    Thanks. This is my first tundra, and plan on keeping it for along time. It's my retirement truck and I'm not retired yet! Lol

    Company called tctwraps.com, they make black vinyl cut outs that cover the chrome section on the reverse area of taillights as for 3rd brake light some members on here have used rattle can peelable paint

    Do light coats and wait ten mins between coats and 30 mins between primer, paint, and clear.
