I used T-Rex Billet side vent inserts on mine. Also bought the Billet grille and Bumper inserts.

I had thought of those....also thought of some kind of paint/chrome combo. It depends. I could do an XL grille, harley paint the lights, and black wheels, which has never really been my style, or I could do nice chrome wheels...and stay with a black and chrome thing. BTW, I remember messaging you about your truc a while ago. Do you have any bigger pics of that thing? I lie the weld wheels.

You have to put them on a Photobucket acct.then upload the image code to a reply here. I'm sure you'd get a bunch of compliments. There aren't too many cclb's on here.

Removed inserts and used some Stainless steel wire.
Chief,
I'm really diggin that. maybe a combo of both. Paint the surrounds, chrome the lettering and use the chicken wire. Could you give me a better Idea of how you did that? Thank you.

How would I go about getting the black paint off the lettering? Acetone or something?

I went with the Billet inserts and Color Matched Inlays for the letters. Once I get the FX4 grill I think I may paint the vent shell and get Chrome Inlays with the billet insert.

If any of you guys are interested I have a bunch of wire mesh I cut to fit the vents. They are being powdercoated gloss black. Just shoot me a PM.
