Default Pic request: Paint-matched trim over upper grill

As the title states, I was thinking about getting this part but kind of want to see what it looks like before. Anybody on here replace that chrome piece with a paint matched one?

I color matched mine. I just painted it with PlastiDip. Turned out great.

Nice wheels! I was thinking about those, they're Work Emotion CR's, right m R g S r? What fitment?

Tennis100, I've got some plastidip lying around. Might just try it and see. Although on your Obsidian paint it looks good but on Starfire Pearl it might not. Oh well, I could just peel it off after.

When I went to pick up the car they had an Obsidian one and the chrome part was more of an eyesore on the black than on the white. Thanks for the replies.

I did a gloss black wrap on my Starfire pearl and it looks great with my roof and wheels.

Yeah, try it yourself first if you're good at DIY. If not, then it won't be too much $$ to get it wrapped professionally.

Well, the piece is matte black..which makes a much nicer contrast to the obsidian paint IMO. All factory chrome parts on my car are now matte black.

Thanks for all the input. I saw that sewell sells the paint-matched one, that's what got me thinking. Mitch, you happen to have pictures of yours? I'd like to see that.

I'm in between a move, but as soon as I can find time this week I'll be posting the cheap jdm visors and a pic of the grill trim for you. Visors to be delivered on Thursday.

Cool, interested in those visors too. Chrome is too gaudy for me so the OEM ones are out. Thanks for that!

Wow, I don't get notifications for this site...Thanks for posting that picture. Visors and trim look good, but I think I would go with exact paint-matched. Where did you get the visors from?
