Looks fantastic. Great workmanship and aesthetics. Really good mix of black paint, black trim and coordinating OG chrome.

Question on the bumper - did you texture coat the black paint on your bumper? I’ve seen this on a few trucks and SUVs lately. My bumper upper trim panel is OEM paint and needs a refresh so I am considering options.

What’s your thoughts and learning on this?

Thanks.
My plastic on the front and rear bumpers is new. No paint or texture coating.

My other plastics I used cerakote trim wipes a couple years ago they work great

I saw a friend's avalanche a few years back painted with the texture on his plastics it looked great, rugged and unique

Oil change a little early as I'm getting ready for a long road trip with the family.
Also threw a catch can in, fabbed a little bracket for it. I wish the hose coming from the valve cover was 2 inches longer but it works just not as much play as I'd like.
Also new tints done front and back. Ordered a new delphi MAF to replace my original. I am very happy with this old girl lately.

Thanks for reading.
Last few major projects I have planned are new fuel pump, nylon fuel lines, finish replacing the remaining brake lines from the kit I have, and patching the small holes and painting the passenger rocker, oil pan gasket, pickup tube o-ring, crankshaft sensor, new starter

Very nice work. The changes are subtle but really make a difference in the overall look. Great job.
