Finished taping this up late last night. It'll get liquid mask to finish all the details around the window moldings, then they can be sprayed flat or satin.

Windows all liquid masked. Might even take this into work to paint it if it's gonna be raining.

Too much cutting and fitting on my rear inner fenders for the Trail King Tacoma. I'm beat but hopefully finish tomorrow.

Took out the Phoenix for the first time on real rocks! Very impressive! Might be my favorite Vanquish rig in my fleet!

Nice, congrats! How long it is going to take to arrive?

On the topic: picked up up some survival gear from https://gritroutdoors.com/outdoor-survival/ ( they had a sale, managed to snag a nice Beretta knife and a new rifle case for like half a price, was well worth 40 min driving there )

Looks good SLN! What was your method of dechroming?
Did you install new parts, paint, or plastidip?

Thanks!

I used Rustoleum branded plastidip called Peelcoat in matte black. Overall happy with it, definitely transforms the entire look of the truck. The only thing I知 not too keen on is the grille I got a pretty decent size run in the paint. I値l eventually peel it off and redo it but for now it痴 staying.

I also just finished up the rear bumper, emblems & tailgate latch.

Nice! And it definitely makes a huge difference in the way the truck looks. It is the perfect product and is easy to remove and freshen up. I like it a lot better without the chrome.

I need to remove my chrome door handles this summer and install the black ones.

Makes the new wheels/ tires look that much sweeter. That's a great looking truck and good idea to kill the chrome.

Truck look great with the blackout!

I used the same Plasticdip on my Tacoma a year and half ago. Front grille and badges are holding really well so far. A cheap and easy way to black them out.

Thanks guys! I definitely agree with y誕ll, the black gives it a better look. I was worried the flat black would look a little cheap/base model, but I think the chrome actually gave the truck a cheap look. I知 not gonna lie though, I almost want to put the black wheels back on and not sell them lol.

Good to hear it痴 holding up for you BMOW. I don稚 have any plans on going back to chrome but you never know.
