I don't like it. I don't think it fits with the rest of the black theme.

I think if you painted the bumper black... Then brought the gray on up the hood, around the bevel of the power dome, and maybe the center cutout too, it would look SICK. Your fender flares are the same color right? Let's get a better angle.

Edit: whoops you already painted the center. But maybe if you did the edge bevel of the dome to make it line up with the grill. And ditch the chrome.

Continueing the gray up on the raised part o the hood was a thought. Jus Had it painted so it b more of a pain in the *** than anything. But yea i was thimking the chrome was ruining it as well. Im thinking of painting the lower valence black too but not the fenders.
