Default Pics with new ''mods'' of silverado

I know shes not much to look at but shes my baby 17 years and 245thousand miles later this is what she is now

Decided my front end looked boring so first i started by taking my tow hooks off and painting them an off color blue then taped the grille off and painted the bowtie the same color While wet sanding my headlights to restore their Clarity Also this is my entry for COTM Please comment your thoughts

Have ya thought about sanding down the paint and just spraying it over with new color. Rattle can would be sufficient for a truck that old

Yeah i have thought about grabbing the paint code and getting some of that duplicolor perfect match.And clear coat and re-doing it..I plan to in the spring replace my cab corners and have it repainted the same color and get my z71 badges put on instead of going with the 4X4 badging

i doubt a paint job will cost me 4600 bucks(this is with 50k miles on the motor) but with the actual amount it is 3 grand....espically sense i usually paint my own cars...spend 60 bucks on paint 60 on clear another 100-200 on body prep materials..wont need primer if i redo the orig color or even a close blue lookin at around say 350 bucks even...
