space grey kidney's

finally got around to installing these. they've been sitting in my truck since they were painted in november.
i used the stock slates (they have the chrome on the front face) with the (space grey) body-colored kidney surrounds.
not much else to say. hope somebody enjoys these:
(oh, and the car is bug-filthy from yesterday's mountain run)





if requested, i'll take a full-body shot when she's cleaned after the rain tomorrow.

Very nice! Do you have chrome or shadowline? I have shadowline and have thought about doing my grills in the same, but your space grey ones look great too! I need to get some pics of mine up; however I'm having similar issues (although not bugs, mine is pollen and rain) with taking pics.

Looks awesome Rodi. I take delivery of my Space Gray in early June. I'm definitely going to do this mod!

Where did you get them painted? Just some random body shop?
