Painted the grille and lights

I just painted some front end parts and thought it would look good, but somethings either missing or needs to go. Opinions?

Yeah but I'm going to order a billet sometime soon and that has to be trimmed. I got the emblem on ebay for about $11 shipped all it is is a sticker.

I'd say body color match the bumper, and clean your headlights man. other than that, it doesn't look too bad.
