      I like it, especially the changes to the body accents. Details on the changes please.

      I’m looking forward to putting on the new snow tires with black wheels soon.
      Thanks! The vinyl I used for the chrome was just some 3M vinyl I got from Amazon - Black Vinyl

      The wheels weren't Plastidip but actually Rust-oleum's take on it (which I got from Walmart) Granite Rust-oleum



      My budget mods. Plastidip done correctly is durable and looks like a professional finish. Wheels, “grill”, and emblems.
      Very nice, I do agree that done right it is a great alternative at a fraction of the price. How hard was the grill to paint? Unfortunately I'm going to need to touch up the wheels as I went into it with the mind set I had with my Prius (which were just hubcaps and extremely easy to paint) which resulted in the unsightly bit of over spray on the tires themselves.

      I just masked the grill area with blue tape. As for overspray on the tires the PlastiDip just peels off. There is a liquid mask that came with the kit from dipyourcar.com
      They have great tutorial videos. I spent less than $80 total.
