Wrecked her again!!! Ugh

Hey guys, ok so I bought my truck a year ago in Virgnia. Has already cost me roughly 4k in expense to ensure I dont have break downs, and then in March, I wrecked it. Did a 1080 on i4 (major highway in fl) and slammed the wall. Luckily it was pouring rain and I didnt flip.

Thennnn just yesterday, I was going to the body shop to drop off a front bumper (fixing what I did when I hit the wall and getting rid of tan/chrome king ranch stuff) and ofcourse, I rear ended a lady. It was actually the cops fault. Flipped their lights just when we turned green and shot across the intersection. Everyone braked, and well, I dont brake as well as them ..ironic thing is I have hawk pads sittin in my closet

Anyways, here are some pics. The back of the bed and the bumper is from hittin the wall, and the front is from rearending the lady. I bought all of the parts and the truck goes in the shop on Monday but I cant decide if I want to paint the front and rear bumpers and grille matte/satin black. They had a truck at their shop yesetrday that was white and had the satin black grille and both bumpers. Looked good but I need some opinions please.

Side note: The whole tan bottom is gettin painted gloss black and a satin pinstripe will be put. Also, I just bought the Harley lights. And Im kinda iffy on the grille too. I have a chrome one but wonder is I should buy a paintable one and paint matte black or shiny black, or buy a harley grille which is gloss with the chrome. Here it goes...

Since RA doesn't make a truck body kit I'd go with flat black or the body shop guys are going to be your new best friends. Maybe take some Vo-Tech classes on body work to help ease the pain.
