Idea I had to make Pre-LCI grill look more like LCI. Opinions?

Hey,

So I was trying to think of a way to get the look of the lci grills on pre lci cars and I came up with the attached image. The basic idea would be to take the little chrome tip, tape off 1/3 of it and plastidip or paint the rest black, so theres just a think layer of chrome, making it look more like lci. I tried to mock it up in photoshop. any opinions on this?

Thanks!

Looks pretty bad IMO. Did you fill in the space on th hood where the grill originally sat? It looks wavy there and bad work. Maybe just the pics
