painted my front bumber/ added crome grille on the coupe PICS

ok guys as some of you might know I had some plate holes on the front bumber from the previous owner and did not see them untill I took the dealership plate off, this was bugging me for some time now and I knew I had to do something about it. I also went a step and had everything painted blue including the grille and the fog incerts, and went even further and added a crome grille, all in the name of trying something new and different.

what do you think, I'm not too sure of the crome grille yet.

in the shop


after the shop




the crome grille






feel free to bash, i know some don't like the crome look just want to try something different not sure if it has been done yet. any comments welcome

It'd be sick if the H was glossy black or something. Looks nice both ways.

I plan to keep the blue grille just incase I get bored of the crome, or just go back if I want to.

if anything, at least get a chrome lower grill to help ofset the upper. I do have to say that the color matched vent grills look good though. maybe I'll paint my fog vents before I mount them this weekend.

not feelin' that chrome on your SBP ... it doesn't flow properly on your car ... i say switch back to the blue grill. the chrome grill looks nice tho ... it would probably look hot on a silver coupe.

you gotta get that H to be another color. it needs to offset w/ the rest so you can see it

I like the blue H idea.

I dont kno about the blue housing headlights... only corvettes pull that one off

u gotta stick to a color combo. Like some ppl like to go black on red, so real dark tint on a red car, black house headlights, and black tail light tint strip.

For ur car, since u got ur car goin blue and chrome, if u want to stick w/ chrome, i'd paint the Honda emblem blue so when its on the chrome grill, it'll go together w/ the car.

thanks guys I was not sure how this would turn out and sill trying to get use to the new look, thanks for all the comments, I think the blue H on the crome grill would look hot but then the H on the back would be crome? ymm or I might just go back to blue grille, at lease I have a choice, give me a week or so I'll make my final decision.

My vote goes to the blue grill, that looks so good. Makes me want to do the same thing for mine.

You just need to remove the H emblem from the chrome grille and paint that part behind the emblem black so you can see the H emblem.
