Trying to decide on paint scheme for front end

I am getting my truck painted next month (red) and I was curious to see if any of you have any good ideas to help me out? I do like how everything is painted but I was thinking about the chrome insert and maybe a chrome bumper? Does anyone have pics of the chrome insert installed? Or maybe keep insert black and have Chevrolet letters in black and leave everything else painted? So many options as I keep thinking of different ideas.

This is your truck? I think it looks damn good the way it is. If you wanted to detail it and paint the letters go for it, white, or black, what ever, it's all art and it's all in your head. I am not fond of the painted bumpers personally, but damn I think that looks pretty good as it is, I like it.

Thanks man! I wasn't to fond of the painted bumpers at first either but it grew on me. I plan on painting it PPG Red toner so I guess i'll just have to wait and see how that color looks before I start adding chrome or black. I always like to get peoples advice or opinions.

Nice color, I would paint the hood release handle black so it blends into the grille and leave it be for a while. The hood release is a little thing though.
