Ok I just finished wrapping my grille about an hour ago. I actually bought the gloss black 1080 vinyl on Ebay (through the EC affiliate link) a while back.

Remember the chop I did? It's amazing how close my chop was to reality. The 3M stuff was fairly easy to work with overall. I applied heat and went one section at a time. There are some small bubbles and imperfections, but hopefully, these will come out in time. And if I get tired of the look, I can peel it off and go back to stock. And yeah I pulled off the yellow fog covers AGAIN. huh.gif I guess I just don't really like 'em. laugh.gif

I dig it!

And if you don't like the yellow fog covers, get yourself some yellow bulbs. I think mine were ~$12 each through Amazon.

That gloss finish really works with your shiny car. Subtle, but stylish thumbsup.gif

I went ahead and re-wrapped the grille to fix some small issues with my first attempt...
