Love it. The blacked out chrome works great with the grey panel. Much better than If you had the ugly red one (03-05).

Thanks for the feedback guys!! Glad yall like it.. Yeah its growing on me too that last couple days.. Debating whether or not to "night shade" or "smoke" the grey reflector panel some to darken it a couple shades... Hmm not sure tho... not bad the way it is.. might just leave well enough alone.. what do yall think ??

Very nice! I vote to leave the trunk fascia as-is because your car is also a light color. If it was a dark color paint I would agree with darkening the clear panel.

Thank you! I kinda agree, think i'll leave it alone for now. Next thing will be to apply the 3M dinoc vinyl simulated carbon fiber to all the fake wood trim panels inside the car. Probably go with the gloss black colored stuff..

Man, that looks great! Nice job, very unique. I've never been a fan of that squared off grille but in this application, I love it!

Thanks!, color matching had the affect of minimizing the grill which looked kinda big imo when it was chrome.. The black center also helped minimize the surround ...
