next up in order re-painted the grill some more, i painted the center strip the same as the trip and blacked out the emblem looks MUCH better.


then tinted my tails and the corners, only tinted the corners lightly though as i was afraid they would appear to dark. tails are pretty dark also.
after tinted and cleared then sanded


then i polished them for a while and this is what i got, mirror shine baby mirror shine


on truck


night

then a light pole at my folks house fell on my truck heres a pic


ya its a little sad i know im just going to replace the hood, as for the roof im going to replace the window, because miraculously it didn't bend the part that the windsheild attached to or sits as would say. then im going to cover the dent with a lund viser for now because found one for a hundred, and it'll hide it. as for the dent its 600 to fix it, scary...

next up i painted the bumper and the hooks, put the reflector back on, tinted the head lights with some stuff a friend had, made the lights far brighter surprisingly, and removed the black trim piece going along side the blazer, much better without it, also added to offroad lights up top sitting on the rack there 155 watts a piece here some pics

one more thing about this truck there is NO rust anywhere, its amazing, even all the underbody and places had no rust or even chips from the paint missing, the factory undercoating was still there, just threw some on to be safe down the road, its awesome has 95K miles on motor tranny t-case etc, and 180k on the rig itself, only 95k on all stuff because it was towed for approximately 90k miles around the country much behind a rv. so its awesome interior in PERFECT condition and so is paint and everything else minus my new dent and a scratch on driver door well more to come including lift, more painting of trim, bigger tires, lund viser, tuning, e-fan, cold air intake etc, well anywho leave some comments on what you think so far, see ya for the night.
