new idea for painted grill, what do you think

i'm getting my grill repainted soon, and was wondering how this would look. so i photoshopped it.

this is my first photoshop EVER, so dont flame my photoshop skills, because i know they suck. but you get the idea.

and to whoever owns the car in your pics, i hope you dont mind me using it as a model.


ALL BLACK



MY IDEA



this is just an idea, so let me know what you think.
