Hey all, I was hoping someone might be able to help me out. I'm considering painting the SURROUND (not the entire grill) to my grill red while keeping the mesh black. Is there anyway anyone can chop that together? Also, what do you guys think of the idea? Too much? Keep in mind I'm aiming for subtle accents with my car. <p><IMG SRC="http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u120/revolve40/IMG_0784.jpg" BORDER="0">

I think it's too much, but I tend to lean towards subtle these days. I think you have a nice clean ride, and you shouldn't mess with it.

Re: (mofolicious)

Ha Matt, thanks for the quick fix. Mofo, thanks for the words, and frankly I agree. It's one of those things where I'm just trying to think of new cosmetic things to do without going overboard. It'll be eyebrows next.

Got my eyebrows a little while ago, put em on and soon figured i liked it better without them. Thing is, the brows ruins the flush lines-they actually stood out. <br>I think your car looks perfect as is..

Okay but how about a softer red? Not something that would stand out like that scion? Think black cherry or something a shade lighter than that?

Re: (cMack)

Thanks cMack. Of the two you sent me (one bright and one darker), I've gotta say the darker one is pretty neat. I still don't know that I'll do it, but it looks pretty cool: <p><IMG SRC="http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u120/revolve40/redGrille.jpg" BORDER="0">

This could so easily look like the Aston martin gt2 race car, which looks like the mouth of a fish. Maybe it won't look as bad with some red elsewhere, but I thought about this but with green

What about a charcoal grey to match the headlight housings...definitely subtle and easily distinguishable from the classic chrome.
