Been a while..

Been a while since i did anything to the fitty, kinda lost drive for any hobbies after a busy winter at work, but now its on again!

Repainted my grill surround to match the truck, took off all the chrome and installed the ATS flares earlier today. Looks way better to me, i love it. Now just need some bumpers or something to make them white. My next upgrade has got to be 8 rib pulleys, too much slip on the supercharger with the 6

So your looking to get rid of the chrome ? plasti-dip works awesome and comes in different colours not just black, and if ou don't like it you just peel it off not like paint.

I just did my front and rear bumpers on my truck and they where chrome, just wipe them clean with alcohol and a clean rag mask off what you don't want sprayed and giver.

I already like it, hope they have some white close to the plain jane white on my truck? Where did you get it? Any pics of bumpers?
