looks clean! Smoke the headlights and make sure you mask the crap out of it when spray painting the cladding because on a color like that black would def stand out.

Very sharp Trac you have there ! Mine is gold also. Your black-out works well with the gold. I'm not a fan of tinting lights, for safety reasons, but for looks your turned out nice and I'd do the headlights lightly.

VERY good looking ride. A tip for you when painting your claddings. (I just finished mine and it is sweet) gO TO your local Vinyl or sign shop - ask them for a roll of vinyl (24" wide) should run you about $30 for 30 feet. Tape the edges, and put the vinyl on top - will give you a good 2 foot area. I had ZERO overspray.

Looks good.

Even if you do get overspray- a few minutes afterwards with a claybar and it's gone.

Thanks. Yeah I've been thinking about taking off the running boards. What do you mean by the wind deflector?

The plastic ledge on the bottom of your bumper under the brushguard mount. It is just held on by them plastic push pins.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try that out tomorrow! While I'm here, here's a couple more pics I snapped last week after a wash and tire shine. As you can see I reverted from my black back to my clear corners and I added some 4.0L V6 decals I got off the net. They were supposed to be for the sides of Mustang hood scoops, but I think they look good here!
