Don't mind the crappy editing with microsoft paint :), I was just thinking about playing with the bumper a bit to get something that looks like this:



Basically all it would be is coloring in the space between the lower grill and fog light housing.

Also, the red stripe is optional, I don't particularly love it, but I want to just throw it in there and see what it looked like. I would be using plasti-dip to "paint" the bumper so it would all be removable if it turned out like crap.

I'm also thinking about doing the wheel covers in black plasti dip as well.

You're talking about giving it like an EVO look then no? That wouldn't be a horrible idea only if the light lined up with the bottom grille so the stripe would be str8 up and dn. Try that on paint and see how it looks. :thumb2:

Not a big fan of the red stripe but painting between the fog covers and lower grille sounds good. I painyed my tow hook cover black. :D

Wheel covers would look good too. I'd "paint" them black and leave the emblems chrome.

Originally an EVO is exactly what I wanted to do, but it doesn't quite work out. I'm gonna keep playing with it and try some different things on paint. I definitely don't like the red either, but I couldn't undo after i saved it, so oi just left it on.

I think with upper and lower meshgrill inserts it might look alright, but with the stock grill I think it looks like junk :) Oh well, I tried

You won't really know if you'll like it or not till you do it. It will look different when looked at in real life. Plus you can get mesh grille just about anywhere now days in case you wanna add that. I say do it and see how it looks, it's Plasti Dip anyways so it can be easily removed.

And yes, I can remove it if I don't like the looks, but that's a lot of plastidip and its not available in stores near me. I would have to order it online and it would cost me close to $15 per can. Idk how fan one can goes, but doing the entire bumper is a lot of surface area. I don't exactly want to blow $30 on something I don't like, but eventually that is what will happen.

$40 and free shipping isnt bad. Have you tried hardware stores like Home Depot or Lowe's? I've seen it at Home Depot.
My local home depot is out and they don't know when they'll be getting any more. The guy I talked to didnt even know what it is. Lowe's is the same story.

hemifan, here is the full front picture like you asked for:



Maybe it'll look better after you're done with it :)
