Default Some touchups

So yesterday i had an unexpected day off, didnt know what to do so i decided to mess up with my rx a little bit, at first i was just going to re-do rear guard defender cuz it got messed up due to people who do not know how to park pain came off so i wanted to cover them up. As a result of having a lot of spare time, i also did the grill and taillights idk how to feel about them, grill looks mad nice, taillights im not too sure about. So here are some pictures

I'm kinda diggin' the tails and bumper lights. Might try it on my obsidian. What did you use and, is it "removable"?

Rear bars look good, so subtle you can barely notice them.

Grill looks good.

Uncover the taillights. Why make your brake lights harder to see in the daytime?

I'd feel the black trim but can't feel those lights, either have to be all black or just take them out as a whole...
