Thanks wasn’t bad at all. Left the grill on used tape newspaper and drop cloths to cover the engine and area I didn’t want overspray. With the taping 6 coats and peel took about 2 hours to complete. Gonna do the tailgate Chevrolet in black next.

For the tailgate, you can order vinyls or get it done somewhere for ~ $40-50. It will last longer, and some out better for that application.

 

I would be concerned about longevity of plastidip on those areas.

Yea I found them Amazon pretty cheap, will probably go the vinyl route.  Not sure how well the plastidip would hold up there.  Not to mention the application my be tougher and call for much more prep.

No taped approximately 1" in around the letters right where the grill curves.  Then when it dried I peeled away the overspray and it separates right at the letters.  So easy!

Definitely a lot of work to do the tailgate letters, you're right. Post it up when you get it done, either way.

Not mine, but I finally get a nice loaner while my ‘19 is being wrenched on again. Really like the Quicksilver Metallic. Super sharp on this SLT. 👍👍

Don’t understand why that color isn’t offered on the higher trim levels. I’m quite happy with my White Frost but the silver comes in a close 2nd for me.

I scooped an OPT 7 Floor Accent Lighting Kit. Installing that this weekend once I find the right dome light wire to tap into.

As for the LED Bed lighting expansion I picked up a roll of LED lights. I'll be tapping into the existing LED light in the back of the truck and running some LEDs under the bed rail of both sides of the truck all the way to the front. That way I can see everything in there when my Tonneau cover is installed.

 

The way they designed this truck over the last generation will require me to drill 2 small holes to fish the wires thru. Since these holes will be under the bed rail, you won't see it when it's done.

I almost forgot about the last addition.

 

 

Can anyone name this Autobot?? 9878af6d39b710a35ca98ba7896f9b48.jpg
