Wink Decided to go two tone! Let me know what you think! [Pics]

Hey guys,

My mom backed into my car a week ago from today, so last Wednesday i brought it to the shop to get repaired, and decided to finish the strips on the roof, and got talked into doing the trunk and the hood

Some of the grill surround is painted black to match the hood lines, and the top of the trunk is black, OEM spoiler is half and half - so from behind you cant see that it's black.

I personally am very happy with how it came out, and i hope you do as well. I think i'll be putting it away from the winter in the next week.

Here are some pics:

To be done over the winter:
-Painting headlights/foglights black.
-New wheels - Black spokes, MRM color matched lip
-Fab lip (CF maybe?)

Let me know what you think!

Everyone's got their opinion i personally think it looks goofy right now because the wheels and the headlights don't match the car, but they will, and my next set of wheels is going to be black.

I think I'm 50/50 on the hood, but with black wheels it may help.

I'll have to look at it a few more times before deciding but it's definitely different. Black wheels would take it more to the good side.
It's nice if everyone likes it but it's more important that you like it.

I'm not a fan of adding black on cars in general. Not bad though.
