Pic ideas - Plasti-dip fime! F250's and EX's

I'm starting to consider doing the dip to the front of my EX.
So as a reference - I'm likely going to be swapping to an `05 grille - and doing the Harley Headlight swap on my EX, as well as a few other items toying with - but that's another thread....

So I'm looking for pics from the group of the front of your trucks - if you have them dipped. If have the Harley's and Dipped - would be a bonus to help me better visualize what I've got in my head for ideas.
I'm just thinking it's time to do away with some of the chrome...

Please post some pics!

Considering I haven't seen your truck since March/April I forget what it looks like

My pics in the sig, one one of caution is when you close the hood dont let it slam because it actually contacts the grill very slightly and starts to tear where it hits. Cant see it unless hood is open but still bothers me a tiny bit but not enough to touch it up or redo it.

Funny you mention that - there's someone on the Powerstroke group on Facebook that's doing exactly that... Not sure if that's going to far or not, but it's his truck.

hmm...i cant get the link to work...but im interested in seeing what its all about!

personally i think plasti dipping an entire vehicle is a good thing. preserves original paint as well as lets you change the color of your vehicle without it being permanent AND its way cheaper and easier than actually painting your vehicle.
