The last part going in is the grill and I can't wait for that. Not sure I posted a mock-up photo but it's a custom 5 tooth grill that I had chromed....very sweet and expensive...but then again so was the rest of the truck...HAHA
Oh, incase anyone is wondering, the paint is a custom mix. Not quite flat or gloss. Basically, its a flat with a little clear in it (or at least is how it was explained to me).
The clear makes it more durable (bird poop, UV rays, wax, etc) and easier to keep clean. Shows fingerprints like a flat paint would but with a little windex it cleans right up (windex being the product the manufacturer told me to use so it doesn;t get too glossy).
Hopefully, its easier to keep than either a high gloss or Hot Rod Black over the long haul, that was the goal.
