got my grille painted

and i dont like it. the painter used the wrong shade so im gonna have him re-do it. anyways what do yall think? i will be getting the headlight housings painted black and hopefully king ranch bumpers sometime. oh i also de-badged it and i dont really like the recon tail lights and third brake light so had my painter black out the stock stuff. recon stuff is for sale if anyone wants it.

i got it from a guy on here for 300$ shipped so name a price i guess. yeah its the tails and the third brake light. tails work perfect and look perfect. third brake looks perfect but one side of the light quit working. its the driver side cargo light, which only comes on when the door is open. i guess either water got into it or the connection isnt the best. ill look into the connection and let you know. heres some pics of them. sorry the best is full of chit.

I like it alot but I think it would look much better paiting the surround on the chrome grille so same concept just have the center chrome. But as you can see from my old truck I'm a little biased.

That's exactly what the king ranches have. I'm going for the unique look. Black headlights and painted bumpers are next so that will set it off
