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.

I love your paint match. Did your grill orignally have chrome on it? And how dif you paint the headlights?

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