Exterior mods advice

OK, I've been playing around on photoshop this morning....working hard at the office. I've included a few different options for my front end set up. Help me decide which to do! I am getting a Road Armor bumper, so that is 'shopped on, and I will be painting the outer surround on the grille. My question is with regard to doing harley lights and further painting the grille.

I am going to add amber clearance lights, and I dont mind the orange on the truck. I think it breaks it up a little, but I'm not sure on the harley headlights. I'm going to install a Retro-Solutions projector bixenon kit, so I have a spare set of headlights opened up right now and ready to paint if I want.

Picture 0 - Stock right now with 2" lift
Picture 1 - What it will be in a week - road armor bumper and painted grille
Picture 2 - Further painted grille like I've seen matty do
Picture 3 - Harley headlights/amber reflector
Picture 4 - Harley headlights/smoked reflector

I thought about that, and if I was ordering a new bumper I would have gotten it raw for that purpose. I found this one on ebay already powdercoated gloss black for $800 and couldnt pass the deal. He had a rear bumper done the same that I picked up too

if you find a good bed liner place that can color match it would still be possible to do it... they can scuff up the powerdercoat and spray on top of that.. it actually sticks better to the powdercoat than bare metal....

I was actually just thinking of that and wondering if it would work. That might be the plan - I'd like to have them tan for sure. Even if the color didnt match exactly to the bottom of the truck, I'd bet it would look good.

if your willing to do it yourself i know the DIY liner we use comes in a tan... or you can color match it if you buy a pint of auto paint and mix it in

I dont have a sprayer. Is it a roll on type? I'd be willing to give it a shot. Do you have a link?

its spray... the kit comes with a gun.. all you need is a compressor... but a semi good compressor that can keep up at about 70psi constant duty.... here is a link: Al's Liner Kit prices are going up feb 1st...

i also have some pics of when i did my brothers bed and my camper shell in white on my old truck....

I'll have to see how heavy duty my little compressor is. It's only one of those 1-2 gallon deals for filling up tires, so I'm not sure if it can handle all that.
