    I like what you did with blacking out the Laurel/Wreath and leaving the crest it gives a glimpse at what we may be seeing in the future.

    A day light pic of the grill would be cool

    I like it! I'd love to see more pics with more light. Could you put higher resolution photos on an image sharing site?

    Did not really like it so I left the front and back only. It's different and still looks good.image.jpg

    Looks good, need to do my grille and window trim/door handles. I debadged mine and pulled the wreath off the trunk so really need to do the grille so it will match.

    I like it when you had everything plasti dipped. Even the wheels. Is that a gloss dip? I really like the grill that way. I did the grill but took it off. I want to replace the grill with a mesh black top and bottom aftermarket. But at $600 and up I will wait awhile.

    Plasti dipped and glossed. Really considering black powder coating all though. Appreciate all the
    comments.

    doesnt look bad at all but in person, does the wreath look awkward? id imagine removing it would be the best way to go about the look your looking for. but even then it might look awkward with the mounting space for the wreath

    looks great! those wheels turn out really nice black, find a way to glossify those rims and it'd look truly badass! and maybe some silver/red/yellow calipers peeking out?

    I'm a fan of just dippin the wreath, nothing more. The machine finish wheels are beautiful and were extra $$$$ so don't cover them up.

    I love the look, and the fact that it's not permanent. Forgive my ignorance, but where do I find this plasti-dip stuff? Is it a spray can?

    Thanks

    How hard was it to take off?
