"The Poor Man Project"

painted front/rear bumpers, stepbars (truck bed coating), fender flares, tail light, rims, removed amber insert in headlight housing, tinted windows 20% all around, debadged, meshed grille.

It should be the chespest project with the most works done. I did them all with my two hands... the grille is the ONLY addition. Tell me what you think.

How can I remove the Amber Insert Like alezone did?
 






I think "Hartman" have a very good write-up... do a search.
 






hum.. how do u get them to shine like ur car paint? they look kinda dull.. but man, good work i could never do that
 






Looks awesome, really nice job.
 






Looks awsome. I'd like to get a black vehicle and do the same.
 






Looks great, I also have the blacked out look.
 






Can you tell me how you got the clear lights? You removed the amber? or brought new ones?? If you removed the amber, how did you do it. I want some clear lights!

Sorry man, I'm not that hip on the rims, but everything else looks GREAT!!!

I think the wheels look cool as hell

I was thinking about painting my wheels a smoke/gun metal gray... but that requires effort

Where did you get the "meshed grille" or did you make it yourself?
 






I bought it off streetbeatcustoms.com
