Super clean looking ride man! Can't wait to see what it looks like with the new decals. Thanks for sharing!

Now let talk about that trailer - she needs a good wash.
HA! Yeah, the trailer will be getting some love too, but what I really need to do is have it repainted, which unfortunately is incredibly inconvenient without a slip or lift. I have new LED's on the way from Pete, am close to ordering custom step pads and will be adding new wheels/tires. The fenders will get polished up before I apply the new pads.

What do you guys think? Which one? Leaning all black (matte). Think they might hold up better over time from a finish perspective.

I like the brushed and black, but either would look good. Reach out to Peter on here for pricing.

Brushed and black as well. The black thing is starting to get old IMO but then again so am I.

Maybe the kids still like the black look but to me it looks cheap. You can make junk look good with a thick coat of powder coat or enough black paint, I like seeing the machining detail.

Yeah, I tend to agree with you. If I went brushed and black, what would you do with the center caps and lugs? The stainless cap won't fit with my oil bath hubs according to Pete, but the caps with plugs will (see below). Would you go black cap and black lugs? Wheel pic shows black in the lug/center area.

Yep, that's what I would do. Looks good to me.

Just ordered up custom trailer step pads from Seadek. They're estimating 12 week lead time, so hopefully will have them before spring.

Seadek template/drawing number 34415, which is 6 pieces in total and matched up perfectly to my 2003 MC dual axle trailer.

Looks like the picture below, but I went with black embossed top layer and then black bottom layer.
