idk man, for whatever reason it reminds me of ed-209 from robocop...



Although looking ed now, stock more closely resembles him, all that's missing is a black hood... I guess the color scheme and shape of the grille is what i keep linking between the two...

OoOooo... I kinda like it, but I'd still leave the emblem.

what about colouring the lower contoured section of the bumper too?

I have a JDM emblem for that spot.....:biggrin:

This? I am Don Pepe......:icon_cool:

IMO, it doesn't look right. Fatboy did it. Wasn't a fan. The faces of the grille and bumper need to be equal, much like Audi and Mitsubishi did with their cars. This is also why it looks decent on FSXTs. There's also a guy in Singapore who did it, but he runs a JDM Cross Sports front end.

i had it done on my silver xt and enjoyed it for a while. I would recommend doing it in vinyl though so in case you ever change your mind you can take it off without having to repaint

I saw an XT on one of the OzFoz pics and liked it.

I gave it a try... but I ended up taking everything off after 5 minutes. The result is pretty ugly in the end imo...

Call me a FuddyDuddy but NO!!!

IMHO it looks heavy, clunky and cumbersome. Not Heavy Duty and functional which is the look I assume you are seeking to achieve.
