This is a very easy mod and cost $8.00 vs spending $100 plus on new. You too can sand the chrome rings and paint them also, gloss or matt black, your preference. I like the Chrome/Black contrast look.
Nice work and I also like your brake cliper mod from the other post. Any DIY info for removing the front grills- how did you take them out?
