custom side gills

i've been thinking of customizing 2 sets of side gills to match the 2 sets of wheels that I'm alternating with...

i bought a second set of side gills from fellow member
(eclipsisNA) btw..this guy is awesome to deal with...

1st set will be black gills /red lens
maybe MR owners want to do this too..or not

2nd set will be the gold/ red combo ( ironm3n theme)
probably not everybody will going to like it..

I think the gold and red would look good but I would also try gold and dark tint and also CF with the red too. If you could somehow get a red tone CF pattern this would look very cool.

so i decided to tint the reflector...
not great but good enough to change the yellow color..
good thing about tinting is...
still keep the purpose of reflector
and it matches the tint of the side gills too
