Been there done that
Rog (Carbon Black) ran with the black surround on a black painted race mesh grill for a while. Looked tacky and he didnt like it.
I (Carbon Black) ran with the black surround and the chrome grill for a little over a year. The black surround was not colour matched to CB, so on close inspection it looked a bit kit-ish. But I kinda liked the chrome on black racemesh look. But then again, even though it sounded good on paper (photoshop) it never seemed to quite gelled in the flesh.
The conscruction (glue gun mounted grill in surround) left a little to be desired. In the end, a year after isntalling I was picking my car up from the garage, blasted off, and at the garage I found that the grill was gone....
Back to normal now.
Lasting memory was. Liked the concept of the look - but would have wanted to build them better myself and also I think its very important to do the lower grill as well to balance it all out.
