Nice. I find it's often the little details that can really transform the look of any vehicle. I also didn't know that there was a matte clear plati-dip.

Thanks man!

Well I thought I got them a little better after pulling up to the garage. But last night while driving down the highway I think my driver side light is still aimed a little high. Shouldn't be to tough.

Wow, you really transformed the look of that XLT. I like that you kept the bumpers chrome.

Thanks! Yeah I figured they would look weird with the chrome running boards if they were painted. I think it looks just fine now.
