Little bit of styling for the day..

Wanted to be productive today. So I blacked out my side markers, and I blacked out my lower bumper grills and I think it came out pretty good for a ghetto mod. Should hold me over till I do the m-tech kit after the winter.

honestly i know its real half assed was going to vinyl wrap them but there are license plate holes in the bumper and the paint isnt 100% and I plan on buying m-tech bumpers so I used a paint marker on the reflectors.. taped off of course, and for the bottom mesh I used a paint marker for the edges and then just brushed on some rust-o-leum gave it a few coats untill it had even coverage. There are imperfections but I expected nothing less
