De chrome and slow evolution to my Stormtrooper

Looks good.
Did you have the grille surround painted white?

Re: De chrome and slow evolution to my Stormtrooper

The whole grill and the chrome piece between the tail lights have both been removed and Plastikoted white. The only downside is the Plastikote is not an exact match. The Stone White is almost an off white and the Plastikote is a bright white. I am a little on the fence about it but it is still better than all of the chrome.

Up next will be to put non load leveling shocks and SRT springs in the rear to get rid of the rake. Then in the spring I can put my black Viper rep wheels on. At some point I will probably buy the paintable fender flares. You tend to lose black wheels with them on.

I'm digging it.
I like it minus the chrome.
