Bumper blackouts

Since taking delivery of my GC Jet (Altitude) I have been toying with the idea of vinyl wrapping the area below the headlight following the styling line from the grill, let me know what you think?

Cheers

I could get used to it. Go for it.

Re: Bumper blackouts

Either way looks great to me. The vino under the light is subtle but it does look nice makes it look wider sort of

Just as Trio says

I makes the Light look bolder and massive.

Re: Bumper blackouts

In my opinion, it helps integrate the black grill with the rest of the vehicle. Like a color transition.

Hey Adam.

Did you end up doing the black vinyl below your headlights? I did mine with plastidip because the vinyl seems a bit awkward. I don't think it turned out all that great so do you have any tips for the vinyl?

Cheers,

Clarkey.
