Things you do to your truck when bored

I know each and everyone one of us has our own distinct taste when it comes to our trucks So what are some of the "little DIY" things yall do to your rig(s)?
Heres what i did today...


It was a MAJOR PIA to tape and cut out the Ford emblem, took every bit of an hour. Then i just hit it with a few coats of VHT Night Shads to give that glossy smoked look. Sorry i didnt take any in-progress pics. What do yall think?
