WK Wrapped Carbon Fiber Grille
 
I'm sick of my Chrome Grille. I really want to find an SRT Grille for a good price, but I can't find one. Do you guys think it would look good if I wrapped my Front Grille with Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Vinyl? Any Ideas? I think it would be a good idea. I was reading that the stuff lasts about 3-4 years outdoor. Hopefully by that time I would be able to buyy an SRT Grille. Where's a good place where I could buy some Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Vinyl. I'm entered it on google and it came up with a millions suggestions.

I am also going to do the Whistler Mod and paint the inside of my Headlights Black. I think that would set it off.


What do you guys think about this idea?

Thanks!
I think I should go with the CA-421 color

I was thinking that, but could it take the heat inside the headlights? I don't want the to peel off. Maybe there is some adhesive I could use. I'm also going to do my door moldings and rear parking sensor molding.

A lot of Arab say "Thanks God" like my uncle :D.

Yes, I think I need about 24X48 to completely cover the Grill if I am correct. It will cover the Face and the curved inserts. And I should have a little bit more.Than I will see how much I would need to do the Headlights.

Carbon fibre grille would look awesome! Gonna be fiddly though. I'm fairly certain it will peel from the headlights though so you may need to use some kind of HT adhesive.

I'd have to agree on the peeling from the headlight housing unless HT advesive is used. The grill would look sweet. May be a bit of a pain with the curves and such.
