Cool Color matched CT grill surround, pic!

Finally got to color matching the grill piece to a gloss black. Looks much better now.. no more chrome eyesore.
BTW, had plastidip on it before this....I advise everyone to skip plastidip for this grill surround....a nice color matched wrap/paint looks much cleaner.

Looks great. I like the chrome trim but this makes the car look sportier

It's no problem. I just know it looks better in person than these two pictures don't do the modification justice

Ok so while doing another mod, first with a CT to do it I might add, I'll post it when completely finished . I looked at popping out this chrome piece which isnt as easy as I thought it was going to be. Did you pull off the front bumper to remove the piece? It appears thats what needs to be done by the time I finished the one mod it was already getting dark so I said Ill wait til another day.
