    Painted a bunch of areas on my leadfoot but dealer and I are stuck between the rear appliqué and the front grille. I want the FORD in the front grill painted in leadfoot and the rear reversed. He is saying that if I’m going to paint the appliqué lettering black then I have to leave the grill black. What day you guys?
    Here are a few pics so far

    Can I paint the front grill leadfoot like this or will it look off?

    I like the back. What if you painted the front leadfoot, BUT leave just the ford letters black on the flat surface. Then you'd have a gray bar accented with the black letters. Just one view, always looking to be different.

    Which is my intent as well but he’s saying it’s will look weird with the tail gate painted leadfoot and the black Ford lettering. Which is why I’m asking for opinions. How did you do your tailgate

    Oh I left the tailgate stock. I think it looks better unpainted. [​IMG]

    I think the rear looks BADASS. But that's just me...

    I was thinking of this, your piano black with lead foot letters. That way it pops in the front and back.

    Truck got back to the dealer today. Here are some pics. Still debating about a few things on it. But once everything is done I will see how it all works together and make changes

    Black door handles would match the Morrors I think that would look good
