^^^ Thanks. I wish we had the 300h so we're even

I did a super tiny mod.

Had some left over tint so put it to good use. To help blend the WHITE front plate a tiny bit more into the spindle grill, I applied 35% tint to the clear plastic cover. You can see the difference before/after below. Any darker though and I'll get pulled over.

you've done it on daylight no? Great result. Now seems a homogeneous front except for the headlights. Would be a perfect front if you had the full led headlights with black background.

There is vinyl wrap for headlights that looks so good, but ours headlights unfortunatly have a complex form and tint these is difficult.
The ORIGINAL vinyl Brand called LAMIN-X, but there are chinese material that gives great results.

I paste ebay link:
http://www.ebay.es/itm/LIGHT-VINYL-T...a4be6e0&_uhb=1

(I work with the fifth vinyl colour of the first row)

Ive worked with this material in other cars and looks good.
You see my works!!

^^^thanks. I've had to recently reapply the blue marker to the stitching as it was faded. I don't mind doing this once a year for the results it gives! Just a few mins and a steady hand is all it takes.

Amazing ride man. I love what you did with the CF wrap. The near the fog lights is that a 3d version?
