wrapping front grill matte black (pics)

Only mod i have been able to do because no parts are currently avaliable (suspension/front rear lips/ exhaust) WRapped the front grill and window trim matte black, as well as de badged and painted rear L emblem matte black to match front and side trim. Any advice or knowledge of other mods or parts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I think that this is a subtle mod but one that is really well done. The matte black border for the grille looks great. I take it that you are planning more mods in the future. Can't wait to see what it looks like.

Not a bad look at all.

One thing i was thinking of doing is to wrap the grille with tint film to create a black chrome finish

Soarer thats what the RCF grill looks like, a black chrome finish. Either would look good.

Thanks Lex, yes many more to come when parts are out for the vehicle!!

Ross, I thought about it, but i like to see at night lol , I will attempt to tint the front emblem so its darker! Pics when i complete that, it is just too cold for the tint to properly adhere currently.

I'm not so sure about the tinting of the headlights. Tinting the Lexus logo might be a good move though. I just think you want to be careful to not do too much. Too many changes and mods can look tacky.

it also depends on how dark of a tint you go

people really want this even go as far as getting higher output bulbs to compensate
