Re: Before and After pics

Here is my K20 before and after. The after pic doesnt show that it now has argent silver mirror arms and the same color on the rear step bumper. The waves in the paint arent waves, its the reflection of the mountains.



The K20 isn't actually going to be my truck for much longer. Im trading it to a friend for his ride. We just haven't had the chance to make the deal yet...conflicting schedules.

Re: Before and After pics

I'm assuming this thread is for pictures of trucks that got improved/restored. I have owned some trucks and used them long enough for the after to look worse than the before .
