Opinions on paint matching?

I'm gonna paint match a few things on the front end, and I just want you guy's opinion. This is what I have to work with...



I know that I want to do the upper mirror caps red like on the FX4/King Ranch etc. I also know that I want to keep a little bit of chrome on the front. Call me old fashioned, but that's what I like. I'm basically thinking that I want a red bumper or a red XLT Sport grille. I feel like leaving the grille chrome with some billet inserts would be more balanced than leaving the bumper chrome. Also, I think I've seen some color matched letters for the "SUPER DUTY" on the top of the grille, but I would have to see it. In my head it kinda sounds cool, but hell it may look tacky. What are you guy's thoughts?

I personally don't like chrome on a vehicle so I say anything you can paint over or take off...do it

I would do a red grill and leave the bumper.

Bumper and grill red. mask off the superduty leave it chrome. Than get billet insets.
I would leave the mirrors alone. IMO the mirrors look way better left black.

Anything that is chrome needs to be color matched.
Leave the mirrors alone except for the lenses....Tint those.

I would leave the grille chrome if I were to choose what to leave. I'd leave the mirrors black.

Personally being a red truck I would do a red/black 2 tone theme. Just my opinion...
