Re: Pics of Black s10s

Thanks haha, not a lot, because funds are really tight. but ive done cheap stuff. Cleared the headlights, painted the grill, and painted the gmc emblems. And its been hit 4 times while parked since then too.


Oh, and if you get it painted... DO ALL THE PREP WORK YOURSELF! I had maaco do it and im not impressed. For 2,200 it should look like a diamong ring. Painting places can spray a line pretty good, but body work and prep are minimal. All the rust they fixed has come back. Its been less than 2 years. When I open my ex-cab back windows, its red, the tailgate paint is flaking to the tan from the truck we got it from... It sucks. They took nothing apart they just taped it and hoped for the best.

its a bitch to keep clean and look good. I spend more time polishing the thing to get out any swirls that develop over the course of a show season than enjoying it. Next paint job will be lighter and will hide imperfections. Black is amazing the first 5 minutes afters been polished, after that, it sucks!

Re: Pics of Black s10s



Shes not clean but in my opinion black is a good way to go, ya it is hard to keep clean but not that difficult.. its well worth it to spend a little extra time to clean your truck,driving at night with just street lights on and shit black looks flawless

Theyre alright, for $500 you can get some really nice paint, if you prep yourself. But we got a quote for $10,000 for plain black paint lol. Their argument was "We'll would take it all apart!" haha. But also black looks great but it is A LOT of work I mean every 2 days my truck should get washed but i never do. It gets crazy spots after it rains, its bad.

Re: Pics of Black s10s

Black is freakin beautiful when its clean but it gets your car really hot and is hard to keep up on. I'm going make my paint nice again tomorrow and ill need $60 in clay bars, wax, polish, and rubbing compound!

Re: Pics of Black s10s

Have fun with black! If there is any wave or dent you will see it, I hand blocked this truck two times and have two coats of high build primer on it to make sure it was straight.

I like it, fits like factory.... cuz it is haha. They are cheap and you can get them from the dealer. You do have to get the plate lamps, I just get the outer lens and 3m tape it on and mod. the stock plate lamp bulb socket to lock in.

Re: Pics of Black s10s

Well, I might as well throw my trucks up here too...





I have to agree that Black is a bitch to keep clean but since my truck is just a daily driver/work truck and not a show piece I don't sweat it too much. That actual Bravada used to be my wife's truck but are are probably going to be getting rid of it now since we just bought her a new car.
