Why not try and Plastidip them? If it goes horribly wrong, just peel it off? It’s like $10.

Just my 2 cents leave it. You need some contrast. You have chrome lug nuts and you have chrome or stainless side steps. All black with that remaining will look tacky. Just my 2 cents You also have chrome in your head lights. Unless you’re tinting them which I don’t recommend. Up to you though. Good luck

I bought the black door Z71 badges from truck emblems warehouse as well as the matte black silverado badge for the tailgate. A word of caution, both of the door badges began peeling off after about 2 months. Some spots left the 3m tape on the truck, some spots the badge took the tape with it.. Yes, I cleaned the area sufficiently before placing them on. http://www.truckemblemwarehouse.com/2-new-custom-black-14-17-gm-z71-off-road-sport-front-door-emblems-2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-silverado-sierra/

Yeah i get what you’re saying but i think if i matte black the emblems it will give that contrast, the lug nuts and side step might stay chrome maybe not.. that was going to be the last to get changed

I used plasti-dip on the emblems. It gives it that flat black contrast to blend in but not completely out. I did smoke on the tail lights. I am going to remove it and use tint on them to give it the gloss on the lights.

Covered the car paint with tape? That must have taken awhile? Did you scruff up the emblems or just made sure they were clean before?

      Hi folks, I have a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT. It’s beautiful & has many years of life left in her. I’m starting to see a tiny bit of rust/paint bubble in the rear wheel well & along the bottom of the door. What can I do to stop it before it becomes really noticeable?  Thanks

      I dropped a 1988 big block in my 1986 Blazer and went thru the timing chain. Put all back together as always. Tried to fire it up and backfire thru carb. So figured 180 out. Pulled the dot towards each other and re dropped the distributor in and set all up. Still getting same.... I am a seasoned mechanic getting my butt kicked. Help. Thanks.

      I am sure as big as this forum is this has been covered many times. Feel free to point me to a thread if you have one. However I picked up a new to me 16’ Silverado Z71 only 33k miles. I installed a Motofab lower mount leveling kit on the front without issue. Love it. 2 inch kit. The rear after the front was done was slightly a quarter inch lower. So I ordered the 1 inch rear block from Motofab. It was even easier to install. No issues whatsoever. Until I went to get it aligned. The front is perfect according to our local reputable shop. He said the rear however is way off(looking at the pic is he accurate in saying “way off”?). Did I cause this? Here is the paper they gave me. Is it possible he measured wrong, tire pressure, been in a wreck, etc? Thank you in advance.
