My "trim delete" mod haha

Well, as probabaly none of you know, I don't like chrome. And I think my truck has too much of it. So, I figured I would take advantage of my day off and get some projects done!

So, in order to remedy said chrome situation, I took the chrome wheel well trim and the black/chrome door/bed trim off today. Total time for the door/bed trim was about 2 hours, and the same for the wheel tirm (due to frozen screws ).

Supplies used for the door trim were:
-Leather work gloves to help save my hands from all the rubbing
-Hair dryer to help heat/loosen the adhesive
-Wet rag to wipe off excess dirt that had collected underneath
-Dry rag and Goof-Off to remove any remaining glue/dirt

I'm really happy with the way it turned out!! What do y'all think?

Before:


After:

Looks good Keven!! sometimes the smallest things make a big difference. I had to take the stock running boards and the 4x4 sticker off the bed of my truck. Until you can afford to get different bumpers, if you even plan on it that is, you should black your bumpers out with dublicolor bed liner. It will make a big difference.

You should post this in our chapter mod thread too... CSP current moding

Thanks guys! And I was actually going to mention doing that in this post (I was reading about painting them last night), but I got so irritated at my computer being such a heaping POS today that I forgot !

Next on my list is spraying the bumpers with Duplicolor bed liner and blacking out the grill as a mater of fact! I forked my savings for the truck so for now I'm just doing cheap/free mods until I have some cash saved up again.

Guess I need another new sig pic lol...

there are a couple guy in our chapter that have done the grill and bumpers and have posted threads on how to do them and what to be mindful of. Hey Bruce is selling a set of wheels for a pretty good price that came off a 96 sd.... they would look pretty cool if you painted them black and put them on your rig.... just a thought bud.

Thats not bad looking. I want to pull mine off, but i like shiny stuff! They are corroded or something, it looks terrible but it does match the truck.

Thanks guys! My trim was in pretty good shape, I just didn't like it. So off with it!!

I did read a few threads about painting the bumpers last night. It sounds pretty simple! Sand it, clean it, primer it & paint it.

Oh yeah he pm'ed me about those! I just remembered I forgot to message him back

looks good. I'm not a fan of chrome either. You could also remove the hubcap and paint your steel rims black.
