Thanks guys. I decided to color match vice using black and I'm pretty happy with it. Here's another pic from a little further back. Truck is filthy from driving to the trailhead for some hiking with my son. I also need to get some fender flares.

That is SWEET!!! You need to get the stealth bulbs for your turn signals to get rid of the rest of the orange color.

Pre-heat oven to 250. Once at heat turn oven off. Place headlight on cardboard in oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes remove headlight, turn oven back on to 250 and start removing the adhesive between the lens and housing. Repeat cycle until you have two pieces. Scuff all crome to be painted with 320 grit sand paper. Clean with acetone. Spray with adhesion promoter and then paint and clear coat. For the reflectors I wet sanded with 320, cleaned and applied two coats of Nite Shades and three coats of clear coat, then buffed. Put it all back together with windshield adhesive. I used ratchet straps to clamp the assembiles back together. Let them sit for a day and then re-installed.

Stealth bulbs are in the plan.
