Default Pictures of my Head and Tail Lights

Here is my Ford Ranger. I changed the head and Tail lights out.. I also painted the Grill Flat black. I am thinking about painting my calipers once i get some spare cash. But here it is. I am also trying to get some low-profile tires and better rims. Maybe some 18" to fill up the gap but that will cost some money i will have to do that later on. I also want a darker tint that will make things look alot better. I have a sound system in the truck also

Thanks man

Well the rims nothing wrong with them. I just need some newer caps on the rims because some of the caps broke so i had to use a spare and its not the same. But its the same kind of cap just different logo not really noticeable. But really the rims are fine. I just want to get something that's more up to date to make it look good with some Lo-profile tires.

I am also trying to get a roll pan. but like i said all that will cost $$ so it will take some time sense im only 17 no job.

I also had the bug shield thing on the door. But one flew off when i was driving so i only have 1. So i need another one before i can put them bck on. That gave also help with the looks.

Very nice! For the grille, I would say get a gloss black, just because it will flow better with the new headlights having a gloss black to them (at least it looks likeit to me), either way paint the plastic trim pieces on your bumper the same as the grille...

Thanks for your comment

You think a gloss black will look better on the grille? I also painted the windshield wipers the flat black color..

Yeah i was thinking about painting that. Are you talking about the Grey trim that is on the front bumper? I was thinking if i painted that would the paint drip down and be hard to do. Because i really don't want to take off the hole bumper.

I could newspaper it up and do that. But i am wondering how many cans it will take.

Do you think i should paint the trim? Flat Black or Gloss Black? If i do Gloss back i might as well change the grille so it will match.


Edit:
I just thought about it..
Do you think it will look good if i painted that Grey trim Flat black? Because everything else is flat black..

Just feeling the gloss since nothing else is flat on the truck. But, if you do the grille and the plastic strips on the front bumper keep them the same. And just get a roll of painters tape and newspaper. I would go with maybe 2 cans to get a few coats on everything.

For the plastic trim, it pops out. All you gotta do is squeeze the tabs on the backside with some pliers and push. I have used duplicolor bumper coating. Dries quickly and looks nice. I just put it on this weekend, so I can't really vouch for how long it lasts, but im sure others can.

Ussualy I would say go with gloss, but the flat black looks real good. I like it!

O really that's even better. So both trims will pop out? That makes things a lot easier if so. Do you think it will look better if i do paint the stripes though.

But yeah I like the flat black look because i have paint the windshield wipers flat black also.

So i would like the stripes to be flat black to make the windshield wipers and the grille...

If i do paint it glossy i will have to change the windshield wipers and the grille so everything will match.



Edit:

Thanks..
I am trying to do a nice little setup as me being only 17 kind of rough.. Lol
