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?

      So, not sure if I'm the only one who has this issue at 130,061 miles but for some reason one night my truck was shifting pretty harsh, keep in mind this is the first time it's done this. I was far from home so I just drove home because I didn't have the money to have it towed nor was I going to leave it out here for looters to break into. Drove it home and just down the street from my house the truck just did not want to drive. It wouldn't go into Drive or Reverse, had to push her heavy ass home. Next day I decided to see if she'll budge and long behold it actually went into gear and I was able to move it where I usually park it. I did not take it for a drive afraid it would happen again. Anyone know what could've caused it to just stop going into gear and then now it will. Seems odd to me.

      -tinted windows                                                              -removed lower portion of valance
      -black plastidip lettering                                                -red tow hooks
      -painted mirror caps                                                       -light smoke on tail lights
      -aftermarket air filter
       
      Future plans include:
      -2 inch level                                                                      -33 inch tires
      -Black bear tune                                                              -Colour matched bumpers/handles

      How it sat when I got it:

      So some of you are probably aware I had a little "incident" requiring me to replace both hood lift spring hinges and the hood hinge supports on both sides. I'm just wondering what order you would assemble it to prevent any further headaches or injury. 
       
      So far I've marked with a sharpie where the hood hinge supports attach to my hood (three bolts each side) so it'll line up  near where it belongs. 
       
      I was planning on removing the one bolt and nut on each side of the hood near the windshield cowl that holds the hood to the truck. Then having a neighbor help me lift off the hood I will flip it over and install my new hood hinge supports (three bolts each side)
       
      I'm wondering should I wait until the hood hinge supports and hood itself are installed before installing the hood hinge that contains the spring (and lifts the hood) on each side? Or when the hood is off should I install the hood spring hinges?
       
      My theory would be it might be easier to install the hood without the hood spring assemblies installed yet so it could sit flat instead of in a lifted position. But I very well could be wrong
       
      The other option would be to install the hood spring assembly on each side while the hood is off (but would require my helper and I to lift the hood on in a raised position, then attach the hood hinges with the springs to the hood hinge supports in a "hood raised" position. 
       
      I want to prevent a mistake or any major problem from doing this incorrectly. Also do you know if the hood hinges with the springs attach with the bolt side in or the nut side in?
       
      If anyone has access to information that says how this is supposed to be done and would share an image it would be greatly appreciated. If not, what order would you go about doing this? Hood hinge supports first (with the one bolt on each cowl side going in first, then lift hood to install spring assemblies, or install spring assemblies whole the hood is off or do I have this all wrong. Hopefully I made sense out of this because the parts come tomorrow. 
       
      Thanks very much.
