Here's mine, sorry for the poor quality it's taken from my iphone. I think it turned out well, I'm not sure if I should peel off the "L" or keep it flat black.

soo if its that easy to peel off the car, then wouldnt it peel right off when you're drying it (for example) after a car wash?

Looks great! I say keep it flat black.

Did you take off the grill surround or tape the whole center part?
