I actually really like them. For $85 shipped they can't be beat. I have no flickering issues, it was very easy to install, and they look great with the stock head lights.

Wow! That gloss black looks amazing! I need to paint mine.

Did you strip the chrome or did paint over it?

Yeah he stripped it down with a solvent and scrub. Nothing too in depth tho. I really likes the way it looks. I just need to wash the rest of my car lol.

Wow that is cool. I don't know anybody that can strip chrome in my area. Can I send you one of my grilles and you get it painted for me? I'd pay you for your time of course.

I don't have a problem doing it, however I'll have to ask the guy that did mine if he would be willing to. He works for a big dealer bodyshop here and isn't suppose to do sidework. He really did it as a favor for me. I'll ask him today and I'll let you know.

Grill came out perfect Drew. Keep up the good work. By the way, where is the roof spoiler from?

Thanks man! I appreciate it. If it doesn't work out I'll look into possibly powdercoating the grille.

Is your paint guy good?
I am local and am looking to get some work on my Lexus's
I haven't seen you around, where are you normally. I am in Johns Creek and drive to Dunwoody for class & my shop is in Chamblee (M.S.Electronics.Inc)

Oh and love the exhaust tips! Did you do any other exhaust mods?

Thank you! I appreciate it. Spoiler came from a eBay seller Richjinbao. It was $90 shipped painted Black Onyx. Haven't test fitted yet though however a lot of people recommended him.
