Painted my 2500HD myself

When I was shopping for a 2500HD truck ...I got everything I wanted when i bought mine except I wanted it in Black.
So over 4 years later...I finally painted it myself using Summit Racing Equipments "Hot Rod Satin Black" single stage Acrylic Urethane paint.
took me about 60 hours of sanding and prepping. Cost...$350 in materials
I also added smoked headlights and smoked marker lights
Still need to install the rear fender flares...I ran out of 3M tape

First pic is the day i bought it
Second pic is how it looked for about 3 years
and after paint

Im stuck on the fence about doing the matte black on my c-3500... I really like it, but I like a shine too.
Yours is sinister cool looking. I would call it an S.S. for Sinister Silverado.

It looks great!
