A cheap and easy mod for the front grill that's worth a million bucks,...

A $5 roll of 1/4" vinyl reflective like silver pin striping. The front grill needed more flavor.

I think its a total win. For me at least because the grill now matches my wheels.

It totally looks like paint in your pics. How did you trim and apply it so perfectly?

Beautifully done.
