    Red Cladding Bolts?

    Hey Guys! Thinking about removing all of the cladding bolts on my ebony and painting the heads red.. just can't quite picture whether or not it will look good. What do you think? All in favor say I!

    Here's my girl with the cladding bolts painted silver. Maybe photochop them red to see what they would look like?

    Nay.....

    Thought about doing something similar myself a few years back, I am glad I stayed with the stock ones now.

    Great thing about paint, if you dont like it, you can change it. I say yay, just do one side, to get a feel for it.

    Chrome plated mine years ago

    On my black 99 VX I chrome plated the cladding screws and they looked great.
    I sold that truck about 5 yrs ago..

    I'd post a pic but I don't know how on the post
