Hi, it looks like you have duct tape on the headlights? If it’s the front grills i like the silver look :thumbsup:

I painted my Orion silver to break up the expanse of black, but that is more noticeable. I think on a darker colour doesn't seem to make much difference, unless you silver the borders of the left right grilles.
I also painted my mesh grilles gloss black, they stay cleaner longer and show better contrast.

Nothing on the lights. It's the dividing piece between the lower left grill and the lower centre grill. Only did it on the left side. I've got a space grey aerosol to paint my new door mirror cover when it arrives so thought I might try painting these at the same time.

Shame I missed you a Rick. Didn't see your car. Were you in the Z. Nice day but a bit cold for the other half so had the roof up :thumbsdown:
