Looks great -- would you mind brand specifying the materials you used?

I was thinking the exact same thing: the OP should trade his Titanium lights with an SE owner. (EDIT: oops - this was already discussed on Page 3...)

Meanwhile, I think this grille-mod look really works with the Frosted Glass above (probably due as much to it already being blinged out as it is to the color). Really looks good.

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

Beautifully done.

If it gets warm enough I will try to do it on the silver tomorrow. I'll get pix as soon as I do.

Both cars look great. I am definately going to do this also. I think it would look great on the Kona blue. I have always thought the blue was too dark for the black grill and you can't see the fangs too good. Silver Focus's look the best I think. Looking at the small bottom grill I think the crossbars on it might look good with one inch wrapped around it. As for durability, I have black vinyl on the bowtie of my Silverado and it's held up since
'05.
