KR before and after (lots of pics)

I'm really happy with the way my truck turned out. Initially I was just going to paint the fender flares tan to match the two tone on the truck, but my brother in law persuaded me into a different direction. It's still not finished. I have a set of 20x12 hostages I'm getting put on Monday.

We removed the flares, the molding on the side of the doors, the pin strip and the running boards.
I'm proud to say that I did most of work, minus the actual painting. I left that to the professional

This is how the truck started out.




Added Fx4 grille


To the body shop







After LOTS of sanding and outta the paint booth





More pics to follow once my hostages get mounted!

I like it, looks familiar!! You Need more pics w/t the wheels mounted up! The fX4 grill, loosing the steps, and deleting the 2 tone really make that truck look sharp now. It looks killer man, love the solid color trucks

Looks great. That is exactly what I'd like to do to my white/tan Lariat. I assume you sanded both sides from top to bottom, shot white over the tan, then recleared both sides from top to bottom?

Thanks!
I sanded about 2-3 inches above where the tan starts and sanded all the way down to the pinch welds at the bottom of the door.

Removed both bumpers, took them apart, then sanded each one of those. My brother in-law did the painting.

We also removed the molding on the side of the door that protects from door dings.
Sanding was by far the worst part.

Didn't you have to reclear the entire sides of the truck?
