If anyone has a picture of what silver ones would look like I would love to see them (my car is titanium silver so i might be interested in painting them but idk about the look)

Silver Rods

If anyone has a picture of silver rods could you please post it? I have a titanium silver body paint and im thinking about painting matching rods but i dont know if it will look good or if it will look cheap/plastic-like.

Is there a way to remove these rods without leaving behind those brackets on the grille?

Might not be close enough, but you can see what they look like. I love it makes the front look cleaner in my opinion. Hope this helps

I did this last week. Most people won't even notice but it does a nice little contrast. Excuse the dirty car and the crap photo. But you get the idea.
