Color Matched my Kidney Grilles - F32 Alpine White

I had an extra set of chrome () kidneys laying around so I decided to see how they looked color matched... I think it came out pretty good!

Looks really nice! I would smoke the headlights slightly to make the front end look a bit more aggressive and also get color matched reflectors to make everything flow nicely and cleanly!

Thanks! I was thinking about smoking the head lights.. Do they make a vinyl overlay or tint? I would really prefer not to use VHT NightShades.

I was foolish when I had the roof & mirrors vinyled. I don't know why I didn't go with white on the reflectors.

I got mine done at a shop that specializes in vinyl wrapping, I think they used Lamin-X
