honestly i dont think i am a big fan of the color matched grill...on any other color except white haha. You pulled it off really well.

The window tint will make the biggest difference ever! It was my first mod haha.

I love the look of smoked taillights. I have my tails and heads smoked.

Window Tint (rest of the car stock right when i got it done):

It is done by myself and i used a product called VHT Niteshade. You can get it at any autozone, advanced auto, o reilys, napa, maybe even walmart. It is in a rattlecan.

If you have any other questions you can pm me if you would like.

Dont use VHT nightshade, use Rustoleum lense tint. I have used both and the Rustoleum is much better. Glossier right out of the can.
