Hey guys, I am busy this Saturday morning finishing my blackout job on the ole Cherry Garcia. I did not take the rear bumper off as I masked and whatnot like crazy! I even put the car cover on what parts it will still fit over. Anyway, thanks Dragon and all you other rattle can gods as I would never have had the courage to do this to a relatively still very new rig.

I will post some pics when I get him finished up. I still have to call Layton to get him to walk me in with the mirror removals! Oh LAYONNN...... wake up buddy!

Kim:clap:

Here is my BC with black Tundra handles as well. Love the look and still debating on doing the mirrors and grill too. A few more pics can be seen in the Members Photo Gallery if you like.

Yeah! do the mirrors. It looks really nice with the white grill and the rest black.

When you move in right up close to me
That's when I get the chills all over me

Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in my thigh bone
I got the shivers in my knee bone
Shakin' all over

OK folks, now the unveiling of the completed Cherry Garcia. I use "completed" loosely as I really don't ever think he is going to be complete!

Looks good Kim!! *sigh* now I guess I gotta finish mine...
But, Nate, consider this..... Now I know how to take the mirrors off and it is EASY! Also, I can show you how to touch up your rear bumper without taking it off.

I am going to redo my front bumper next weekend and I am not going to take it back off to do it, so I can help you out when you are ready!!!

Kim:cheers:

Looks sweet. Nice job!!
Thanks Dragon!!! I am actually getting pretty good at it. (Screwed up enough already and had to fix it) I like the fact that I can do my own touch up! I am really impressed with how easy it is to work on these trucks. I mean I will never do mechanical stuff so to speak but I like the body mods!

Just let me know Buddy. Be prepared to have your mirrors off for a few hours so the paint has time to dry between coats.
