Hey guys,

I finally did it. I had my (ugly) chrome gille replaced with a painted Toxic orange one. I also took the stock 'cross hair' piece and wrapped it with 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber film. That stuff is awesome! Finally, I had my stock fog lights replaced with LED lights. I really like how it turned out! The car looks so much better now. Plus, the LED's go with the whole tail light look I already had goin'. ;)

Nicely done. That looks pretty darn sharp!

Do those LED's work as fogs then? They don't seem like they would be bright and/or project far enough.
Thanks man. Yeah, the LED's really act more as a DRL than a fog light, but that's the look I was going for. My HID headlights are plenty bright enough on their own. Plus, they look great together. No more 'yellowish' stock fog lights. They always bugged me.

That is so awesome looking, I was thinking of doing that same thing, Now I am going to do it for sure!!!! Reps to you
Thanks man! I can't stop smiling. I'm so happy with how it turned out. That 3M carbon fiber film is really cool too. I might get a chin spoiler and wrap it as well?

Thanks! My first pic shows the crosshairs pretty well. What were you hoping to see? Just wanted to check before I posted another pic

Paid $150 for the stock (black) grille, local body shop charged me $185 to paint and install it. I took my stock crosshair grille and wrapped it myself. The 3M carbon fiber film is on eBay for $25 (4' long sheet). Well worth every penny!! It just finishes the car!

I bought the 'stock' Charger fog light bezels for the SE that doesn't have fog lights. Then I bought these 'Mercedes-style' L-shaped LED's from Amazon. I think I paid $55 (total) for everything. I just drilled two holes in the factory bezels and mounted the LED's. Pretty straight forward. I suppose you could wire them to actually be your DRL's but I wanted the convenience of having them be my "fog lights" even though I'll probably use them all of the time. They look awesome!! They are really bright and match up with the HID lights really well.

I seriously had multiple people stop me to tell me how sweet the car looked!! ;)
