    Who out there has had their trim painted? Color matched, or otherwise?

    I manage a body shop so painting the parts isn’t an issue, I am looking for photos of trucks that have been painted so I can potentially figure a scheme out for mine should I decide to pull the trigger.

    Thanks in advance!

    This forum tends to be hit or miss sometimes, so if you looking for quick good info, may not find it here unfortunately. However, here's a trim painted photo from mine and you can search on google for painted trim photos as well.

    I was on the ol Google for a couple hours yesterday before I posted, it’s a lot harder than I thought it would be! I appreciate you posting yours up though as mine is also white. Not sure I want to go full Miami Vice, what made you stick with the bumpers in stock color?

    I painted all of the Raptor trim and door handles on my Gen 1 to match the truck, but it seems there are less people doing it for the Gen 2s. To save the money on my Gen 2 build, I went with the Magnetic color because it matches the trim color from the factory. The trim has a matte finish, but the color is the same.

    Thanks for the help, dudes! Wasn’t sure if color coding would wash out some of the characteristics that I love about the truck but from what I see here that shouldn’t be a problem.

    Probably going paint next week when the spare car is out of the shop. I’ll post her up when she is done.

    thanks for showing it in white - I was wondering how it would look

    I definitely prefer it stock - more rugged
