Two tone my hood?

Ive been getting the itch to two tone something on my truck. At first i thought about doing the lower portions like the Level IIs, but ehh.... kind of not feeling like doing that much to it. I like how it looks, but dont feel like painting that much of my truck

Sooo...

Im thinking i might do the powerdome portion of the hood. I like DSG and how it looks with the black on my truck, but well, yay or nay?

Plus... should i do the grill surround too? I tried to photoshop it but i kinda like how it looks with the grill all black still.

Thoughts? I might do it tomorrow at work. Ive got some time.

I think the first picture looks good. Have you thought about leaving the center portion of the hood black and painting the lower portion of the bumper black?

Yeah... that's what I meant when I said Beards truck... the bed/tailgate was originally on Beards truck (note his hood) but now bed/gate is on Mike's truck.... I like it!
