Free front grill

I was bored today and decided to mess with the front grill a bit. Painted the fog lights black. I don't use them anyways. I also painted the pony black and on the driver side I cut away the plastic part that was covering the cold air tube. Im sure that there wont be any performance benefits to this but I was bored. After a wash here are some pics.

I wish there was a way to make the foglight lens black or something like that to blend in while still being able to use them.

Looks really nice! I painted the pony on my V6 with matte black paint looked awesome for about 3 days (was well prepped BTW) but road debris peeled the paint in spots. I removed the grill to access the pony to release the retainer clips, sand blasted the pony and used a rhino liner type black paint that was textured when dry. I got a lot of positive feedback from people, and the best part it will never chip. I will definitely do the same with the new one! But I'm keeping the fogs the way they are on mine.

Check out headlightarmor or lamin-x. They make a very high quality protective film in different is a picture of mine with the fog lights tinted in their Smoke color. It is dark enough to give it the look I was going for, but still useable.
