It's glossy, probly should have been flat, oh well, I can change it when this wears off. I bought a second grill for $15 so if i decide I don't like it I can just switch back. I think it's pretty cool looking what do you think?

yeah, I thought about doing the spear (now i know :) ) body colored but think it would make the car look kind of like a toy, i dont know, maybe its just me

yeah there are foglights back there, they arent aimed right because my friends car got stolen so i aimed them very wide so we could look into driveways, than when i put them back i just kinda pointed them in the right direction

I painted my grille and spear glossy black a while back. The grille stayed glossy the spear chipped and didn't look so good so I ordered a Factory Black one and it looks gooood. I think body color would make it look too much like the 2003 SES Sports.. the black sets it off and makes it look one of a kind.. great mod.

Looks much better, and reminds me of the 04's. Are we still calling those the Gen4.5's?
I remember when Jason8225 painted his spear. It was before the Gen4.5's came out, and it looked REALLY good.
No it's a G4. That would be like calling '98-'99 G3.5.

That grille looks nice, and I'd agree it looks better if it was flat black.

Painting the Letters black is kinda hard if you do it on the car, I did mine and masked them, do able but takes some time. You'll get a good contrast on the white car. I painted my Rear "Shield" black and it still looks good, the letters have also withstood the elements better than the front Spear.

Here's a picture as of the 1st of this month.
