Default New brush guard

I got my new brush guard on my truck a couple weeks ago, doesn't quite fit the way I want it but its on there. I have it back off now waiting to paint it. Heres what it looks like so far though.











worked a little on the dixie horn too, waiting now to paint the mounting brackets

Its not really what I wanted but I only paid 50 for it. I think it will look better painted. I'm painting it gloss black.
