I tinted my headlights and tail lights, I think they came out nice. I'll take pictures today. I taped off the white reverse light squares and the thin reflective vertical strip by the tailgate on each tail light. I'm happy with the results for only a 12 dollar can of lense tint. I sprayed 2 coats of clear on top to give it an extra gloss.

As soon as I get off work today I'm regapping all my spark plugs and cleaning my IAC.

I got off work so i polished up the factory wheel ring things. They were real tired lookin. They had alot of water spots that were hard to come out and the old painted stripes were really faded so i got rid of em. Under the red stripes was primer i think. Ultra steel wool, mother mag polish, alot of elbow grease, a 6 pack and 3 hours later.

They were already installed when I bought the truck.
