to everyone else thanks for the compliments and it was done with 3 coats of Wurth trim and bumper paint 3 coats of plasti dip and 2 coats of the trim paint ove rthat so it has the look and texture of the trim parts on the car

I didn't paint mine and left the chrome. Its grown on me and sort of ties the headlights together. If I did paint mine, I think I would go for a silver similar to the original color just to tone down the chrome bling a bit
Yours ties it in nicely with the 04 black trim. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

The grille came out good. If you're going to re-paint the stock trim, I would color match it to the car.

What's that black stuff on the lower edge of your bumper??

Huh?
It's an 04, it's part of the bumper

If you mean under the middle lower grill, someone either taped or rough painted the scuffed bumper
I used to do that on cars that had a scraped up lower front bumper
(A quick and dirty fix)..\
I did that on my Prowler. EVERYONE scraped the lower nose at least once as it stuck out so far. A quick application of masking tape and some spray bomb, it was "fixed" and looked just fine
