Just Plasti-dipped my Taillight Bezels. They look good. I'll get a full picture of the rear in daylight then.

Decided to buy the Landing Pad for the front bowtie to give it a shot. I was impartial with it on there tbh. I like the non-bowtie look a lot better. Worth a shot I guess. Maybe it'll grow on me, maybe not.

Just ordered a front fascia blackout vinyl. It's on its way at the moment. I think the look is awesome.

Just to show what I'm getting. I'll post pics when I get it installed on my car.

I installed my front fascia vinyl blackout. My first time giving it a try. So it shows lol. I have some pics so you can see a least.

I do have a question though. For anyone that has installed one of these or multiple before, do you think it might be a good idea to remove the bumper and take out the grill so I can get the vinyl to be slightly underneath the grill? It was quite difficult to line the vinyl up with the bottom of the grill. It shows obviously because of the color in between. It would seem that would be the best idea.

I don't mind trying again as this was my first time. Any advice would be awesome.

Looks good. About the front black out I ran into some trickiness too when installing it. You can either remove the bumper and install it and fold over the edge some, or if you don't want to remove the bumper you can push it back enough so no paint it showing and let it adhere and cure for a few days and depending on how far it's back you can leave it there and the excess will be fine or carefully strip it off with an exacto or other razor blade. The toughest part for me was the curves on the side and trying to get those right and not have to have the whole stripe so far forward.

I focused on covering on the paint and working the sides slowly letting it dry and adhere for about 20 minutes then worked at it again and it came out like a charm. I have a close up in my album.


Hope this made sense. It's late. ;-)

Oh, also I was using the OEM TF3 blackout stripe so it could be cut different. Where did you get yours from?

Love the heritage grill and the black out!

I maybe wrong about this, but black out maybe a bit more difficult with the heritage grill due to it coming out to more of a point in the middle of the fascia. You may have to remove the fascia for proper installation.

I removed the blackout vinyl I previously had on there. I just didn't like the way it came out with the orange showing in front of the grill.

Instead I added a plasti-dip blackout of mail slot and in front of upper grill. I decided to remove the entire front bumper and removed the grill to complete it. Made it really easily to apply.

I decided to paint match the chrome on the rear bowtie. I used spray from automotive touch-up to get it done. I've also removed the SS badge from the right-hand corner. I'm really happy with the way the bowtie turned out and removing the badge gives the entire rear end a clean look imo.

G2 paint matched calipers completed today. Brembo decals to come after the paint has fully cured. I'm happy with the results.

Paint cured overnight and I completed the project by adding some Brembo decals. Looks great and makes the calipers stand out even more.
