This definitely isn't for everyone. The reason mine "hides" things better is probably due to the fact that I flat blacked everything that wasn't black that was visible. The only thing visible really is my air filter for my cai. Here is a lesser quality pic at a sharper angle:


The keys to this looking right, imo, is to flat black anything that stands out. This includes: The tabs that hold the reflectors, windshield washer fluid reservoir, tow hook mount/aluminum bumper support, anything in the grille area. Matte or Satin krylon paint works great.

Looks good. I would do a support rod or two linking the bumper from top to bottem behind the mesh. The bumper gets flimsy when the grill is cut out.

That would be the front tow hook when they put your car on a flat bed.

Point taken.

Solution: I will cut a small area near the tow hook and install a tow hook. Great point guys.

Any recommendations on places to buy a cool tow hook?

Make sure you know the correct size.
