Thumbs up How would I go about doing this to my black grills?

I was thinking of going to the auto store and picking out some touch up paint to match the three ///M colors, any other suggestions? I know I haven't seen these grills for sale like this...

I have a set of these on my car... Easily one of the most heavily commented things on the whole car.

If I had a choice to change I'd do this to a set of carbon fiber grills. That'd be a great look.

It might be a little much but have you considered led strips? They get used allot to add flare to bikes but I think the stripes would look pretty good at night if you found the right colors.
