Changing up the fender vents...

I thought I would change up the fender vents a bit. With the billet insert it seemed like too much bling.

Before...


After...


Thinking of doing the grille inserts next.

Looks great man. I was thinking of different things to do with the vents. The expanded metal looks good.

Not bad for $9 and some left over paint.

I skipped the $9 and just used left over black paint to cover up the Ford "Dirty Pink" stock units!

I had originally painted the factory ones Sterling Gray to match my truck, but put the billet inserts when I got the inserts for the grill. I don't care for the billet side vents either and think they're to much, but at the same time don't want to put the mesh inserts in the side and have billets in the grill. What if you painted the side badges, got chrome inlays for the letters and left the billet inserts?

I thought about that and will keep the billet inserts because I will probably color match the grill and bumpers someday. I think then the billet inserts will look nice. I am thinking of making some mesh inserts that are color matched soon just to see if I like it.
