Default Added Chrome Grille Insert & Handles

The insert snapped right on and had a strip of 3M on both sides. Went on easily. Bought it off Ebay. I was going to buy a complete grille but I just went through hell putting on new Ford Oval Emblems so I didn't want to do that..and plus it was cheaper. Whatcha think??

Before: (That is a tad of rain on the middle of the hood)



After:



And a side view:

Looks great I wish I could do that to mine. I might get the handles but mines too old for that grille.

Thanks guys.

I just ordered some Chrome Mirror Caps for my side mirrors...then I'm going to take a break on the add-on's.

Around tax time I plan to add Chrome Bed Rails...then Ill be done with the exterior.

Yea, I actually got a new front one, and a new tailgate one. The old ones were discoloring BADLY, so i replaced them. They are the 1 piece design which is very hard to fix or paint.

But to answer your question....I threw them both in the trash. They looked horrible.

I did at first, but it got old after a while....I'm ready for something new. Plus, I don't use my truck or consider it a "Sport" even though it is a Sport. I wanted a tad more...upscale....look from my Ranger. Whether I'm accomplishing that..I dunno.

I already have the chrome tailgate handle...bought it with the 2 door handles.

And as far as window trim...I think I'm going to leave it how it is now. I don't want it to be too "chromed-out". I enjoy the black and dark gray on my truck also...so Ill leave that one alone.
