Installed my heritage grill that I got from BeckyD. and painted my bottom T-Rex grill

Tell me how you like it. Yay, or nay..........???

I painted the entire bottom grill black except I left the top 2 louvers chromed.

I still am going to paint the hood spears on hopefully this next weekend. But let me know what you think. I'm not sure about the bottom grill. Finish painting it all black, leave it, or take it off???

I never give negative comments but since you asked, I'll endulge you this time. I generally take the stance that a person should do whatever they like since its their car and they're the ones who have to pay for it and live with it.

First off, I love the car! I love those wheels as I've seen them before and if I could afford them, I'd probably have a set on my RS. The other thing is I'm a big fan of the Heritage grill. I almost pulled the trigger on one and I too wasn't sure if I'd paint it RJT of leave it black if I got one, or a combination of maybe painting the shroud around the grill the color of the car and leave the part over the turn signal black. I don't know but I'm not really feeling the red on yours. I'm not sure what it is. I think a black car such as yours I would have either went black or a gun metal gray metallic and loose the chrome on the lower grill too. Again, I'm not criticizing your effort but you asked for opinions and you know what they say about opinions.
Anyway, you might save yourself some time, money and effort and use a pic of the car and photo shop it in various modes and come up with something that you might like better. Again, just a suggestion but I can't complain, cause you've obviously done more than I can ever do. I know being on other car sights guys would complain about other peoples mods simply because they had two lips and a tongue and the biggest mod they had done was bringing their car home from the dealership and parking in their parents driveway yet they had the nerve to offer up hate on someones mod. I never wake up and drink a glass a Hater-Aide to start my day so again, its about what YOU like.

Take care and keep the mods going.

Peace!

I did the photoshops. I liked the orange on the black. Espec. since the interior had so much orange. And I'm a drive with the windows down guy. I was concerned about the orange on the black. In this case, I think the different orange on the spears and the grill are throwing me off a bit. But the spears are getting painted to match the grill.
I think it will pull it together well like that.

At first I thought it was too busy too. It has grown on me for sure. When I first put my hood spears on my car I hated them. I already like the orange grill on here. Just not sure bout the bottom one. I may finish painting it.

Randy......That is the look. Right there, that looks Brilliant!
It's completely custom to YOUR car...and ties everything in great!



I'd leave it if I were you...but, like everything else...stick it out for a while, see how it 'feels'.

Yup. That's it. Headers and exhaust go on in a couple weeks.

Like I said, I will have the stripes painted and I'm done. Only thing I might do is paint the top two louvers on the bottom grill so it would be all black. Not sure I like it.

BUT, I still have to do the back. lol From the photoshops you did.

Those Wheels look real good. What brand? I like the hood spears also, but the red grill doesn't flow with the rest of the car in my opinion. Should be black. It's your car though as long as you like it.

Is your exhaust currently stock? I thought you had a catback or axleback?

PQ, like I said, its your ride and what you do has to please no one else but you. What I do appreciate is that you asked for opinions and though you got reviews on both sides of the fence, you didn't kill the messengers of those who may have not given flattering reviews. I love the car and admire your leap of faith of putting together what you want. I know with what I've seen, it will come together as you're still working things out in your head and pulling it together. The thing about cars, car enthusiast is that no matter what we do to our cars, its always a work in progress thing. A little here, a change there, did it look better the way I had it or should I do this, what will people think, who cares what they think. I appreciate your open mind, style and technique!

Peace!

No need to get pissy about critisizm. Especially when you ask for it. I'm not like that. Fact is there is NO car that everyone likes.
