Also, where did you get the little black inserts/caps for the fog lights on the front bumper? Those are fog lights aren't they lol...
Those are blank covers. The trucks that don't have fog lights should have those covers.
Dumb questions but I am about to do this and wanting to do it correctly. Did you just mask the front end off before bedlining or did you remove the grill/bumper? Also, would you suggest removing the door handles or just masking the doors/windows off and spraying them while still on the truck? I'm getting ready to "black" mine out as well and want to do it correctly. If you removed the grill/bumper... was it hard? I'm also thinking about bedlining the entire front bumper and grill and going with bedlined bushwhacker pocket style flares... I had them color matched but I like the bedlined/blackedout look... I'm guessing you can buy the 3m stripping pad at Auto Zone... what kind of reducer and primer did you use?
When I did mine, I removed the grille and headlights and masked off the fenders, wheels, and hood. The grille and headlights are easy to remove. The grille has about 6-8 clips (pictured below) that you turn about 45 degrees with a screw driver. The top clips are easy to reach. The bottom ones are more difficult to reach. I really don't care for the clips, so after I removed the tops ones, I just yanked the bottom out. If they broke, they broke. When I put my grille back on, I swapped out all of the clips for zip ties.
To remove the headlights, there are 4 bolts total per headlight (3 - 8mm and 1 - 10mm). One on top near the adjustment thing, one in front, and two behind the bumper end cap. To reach the last two, you have to turn your wheel in, undo the fender liner, and reach behind the bumper end cap. Unplug the wire harness to the headlights, and they slide out.
For door handles, I would keep them on. People say they are easy to remove, but as Murphy's law goes my simple job turned into a nightmare. I broke a latch on my driver door on my old Titan and could not open the door from the inside or outside. I ended paying a friend $200 in parts and labor to fix my door. I didn't attempt to remove the other handles. I just masked off the area and painted them. Home Depot/Lowes/Wal Mart sell a roll of paper in their paint department for a couple dollars that is great for masking off areas.
Some people use primer, but I didn't. The door handles on my old Titan held up just fine with just scuffing and bedliner. I can scratch at my bumper with my nails, and it holds up to it. Obviously if I take something like a screwdriver or keys and scratch at it, there is a greater chance it would chip.
