Paint match project

I've been doing the paint match on my truck and doing the black and white theme. This is what I got so far. I did mirrors, rear bumper, and fender vents. I still need to get the front bumper done and tint the lights and do the grill. I'm not a chrome guy at all. But let me know what y'all think. If anyone knows here I can get inserts for my fender vent letters let me know I wanna do them white.

I like my big bumper when I'm under the good it helps me reach everything because I'm not very tall.

I had my stock chrome bumper damaged when I got rear ended so I got a grey one and just removed all paint by sanding it and did the paint steps with primer paint and clear.

It's looking real good so far. I hand painted the writing on my fender vents and it turned out great. Here's a couple pics of my white color matched '08.

You have to bake the headlights to separate them to paint and the oem fx4 grilles do not have Chrome on them
