I have them :D They make a huge difference, and even better with a set of silverstars. The dispersal pattern is different, and that is the only difference in them. I have some pics of them, but my old stock n.america lenses are pretty sandblasted so not a fair comparison. Ill have the pics up in a few.

its just the oem grille some 220 grit sandpaper, black and clearcoat spraypaint. Im gonna try the krylon "fusion" for plastics since i have a couple chips in it, but minor. glad you like it :cheesy: id say use the plastic paint, and use as much clearcoat as you can, mine is about 6 or 7 coats and still kinda dull...

sorry it took so long.
edit: the cuts are higher than they look in this, especially the one on the right side. I couldnt find a perfect place to show em off...

i just cant seem to get the message right the first time... or the second for that matter

I have painted my grill in the past, always ends up chipping. I just did a google search on "removing chrome plating" and I came up with lots of answers. Apperently the model building crowd has been using Castrol Super Clean, Bleach or Formula 409 with good results(choose a product, not all mixed together). Im going to try it on my car. Apperently you soak the part in the solution for a day or 2 and the chrome plating will peel away.
