    It’s tough to tell from these pictures but for me it ties in nicely with the glossy accents I have throughout the car. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you - looks great!

    Are those aftermarket hood stripes or the ones that they put on the black trucks as it looks like it has the silver trim around.

    Have any more pics of the complete truck done? I was going to do the same thing but looking at this pic I kinda like the shiny better.

    Are these the stock decals that came on the truck from the factory or did you add them after the fact?

    I’m asking as the Leadfoot trucks get the Ebony graphics that have the small “fading dots” (fades into body color near the top of hood) and yours appear to be solid black.

    Could you please send a close up on the hood graphics?

    Pretty sure they're still building LFs, mine (silver) is still waiting for a build date, rumor is that the cutover to 2019s starts in 2nd half of October.

    I really like the LF and AG colors, it looks pretty dark in overcast or at night, but bright sunshine REALLY lightens it up a lot. Only negative I can say appearance wise is that it seems Ford is copying TRD, saw a bunch of Tundra's in a similar color, wait a year or two and Ford has it. Kind of like how I see "platinum" badges on all the Jap trucks now.

    I chose plain old metallic silver (ingot I think is the term) because I just love metallic silver paint on my cars/trucks. I considered LF but stuck with Silver because I 'trust" the choice and I have concerns about long-term paint care. Surely not as bad as black but swirls and polish lines seem inevitable.
