So far I have painted the grill and the bowtie body color, installed ventshades, locakble tonneau cover, clear corners, Lots of stereo, and shaved the tailgate emblems.

In the next couple of month's I'm installing a step shaver roll pan.
So what do you think?

Hey thanks sweetbutxtreme!

Yeah i'm going to be getting Cal Vu mirrors next paycheck so that should look good, either that or paint the stockers?!?

I'm really saving most of my funds for step shavers!!!! I think they make the BIGGEST improvment on sport side S10's overall looks!

Yes I do In fact ride BMX, mostly street with a little park. I ride a Macneil frame right now, well I will when the snow melts. I have been riding a couple years now. My friends ride S&M's, FBMS', Hoffmans, and there is one Dirt Bros. I'm also on bmxboard.com quite a bit.

Later :thumbup:

I painted by myself. I got a body shop supply to mix some acrylic enamel paint to match my truck. I gave them the paint code from the glove box. To prep the grill I taped of the chrome bar and removed the corner lenses, then I sanded the finish with 1000 grit wet dry then 1500. I didn't use a plastic primer because acrylic enamel paint actually "eats" in to plastic, it will not come off because it bonds REALLY well. I used a paint gun and I sprayed about 10 light coats then 5 or 6 heavier coats, then let it dry for a day or so. Then a coat of wax to sine it up and it looks great for a do it yourself job. Thats about it

I live in Saskatchewan and our license plates say "land of living skies". That must be one of those "living skies", I hate that slogan.
