Default Horizantal Grille

Should I do it or no

im not completly sold on it yet...


i think i sized it down to about the size it would be on the car...top to bottom is 2.6" and i measured the grille to actually be 2 3/4" so its gona be close but i think it could work out well enough...

opinions?

Looks cool, as long as you copy the spacing of the detail lines in the front bumper cover it should be pleasing to the eye, if you use the right finish. Chrome would be gaudy, but body color or a light gunmetal may look nice.

i edited the post, at first the picture was too small, and the detail didn't come out right...i posted larger so now you can see the grille

yeah definatly would not stay chrome...i'd like to go with body color, or even thinking maybe gold...

and you suggested doing thr front bumper cover hole too...i thought about that before...but yeah...

im not completly sure i like it, but here it is:


doing that would just over double the cost though for the extra material
which is coming from eBay:

That material seem too closely spaced for such a smoothed body.

I like it. The spacing does seem a little tight but I've been drooling over the look since I first seen a pic of it awhile back.Its very aggressive and looks professional.
