actually it looks great except the quality of the photo...

leave it like that is nice already. i'm thinking if you paint it black it might appear like no grill

good point. if you get black wheels, then paint it.

but the steel look and your rim color match. so it flows

yah i thought about that too, but i got plenty of mesh left so im gonna paint it black and if it looks like crap ill cut myself another grill...the problem and main reason why i decided to paint it right now is cuz its raining today and it started to rust already :banghead: .......... so i got rust proof black gloss paint :thumbup:


heres the work in progress so far and a few pics of the car outside with the unpainted grill in no particular order, i also did some work on headlights with plastx, to make it a bit clearer, still gotta do the whole 800 then 2000 sand paper process:

Mesh grill looks nice on the 02 bumper. But please, get projectors for those HIDs.

2 screws at the top corners, just like the original grill was held up
