Mtech plan sounds good.

To add a pic, click "Go Advanced", then "Manage Attachments"

(I guess the attached pics show that non-Mtech bumpers can look good... in the dark )

It did work. So its now time to find 18" parallel wheels. There was a set I was going to look at tomorrow off craigslist, but they sold yesterday. Back to the drawing board.

Thanks. I am looking to do that on all of the chrome definitely. Just unsure if I would need to take those chrome pieces to get painted or do I need to actually order those pieces in black? I also plan on ordering the m tech front and rear bumpers as well.
