Nice
So how much are they paying you for advertising? (Just kidding)

My grille block is also clear:



This allowed me to mount the LED DRL's behind the block without messing up the aerodynamics. But no EcoModder sticker on mine, I've got a better place for it

Piwoslaw,

FIrst you are one of my role models here. I like the quality you bought to your mods and your input is spot on.

I really like the led look. I may change my entire set up next year to do them. I had installed Haols as my DRLs and the two would clash.

Nice clean look! What kind of plastic did you use? How did you cut it?

DAve,
walmat has poster frames in their picture frame section. the cheapest one is $10. it has a clear plastic that is in place of the glass in the frame. that is what I used. It is very thin. and flexible. It also has a very thin sheet of protector film on each side that you'll want to peal off. I used tin snips to cut it(probably not the right tool but ......) Welcome and good luck!!!

Sorry for getting slightly off topic, but buying a poster frame just for the plastic reminds of a true story.

During Communist times my Mom's collage friend went into a bookstore and bought 20 books by Lenin and Marx. After paying she immediately started taking them out of their plastic covers and throwing the books into the trash. The store clerk nervously asked what's going on, probably expecting a political provocation. The friend explained that she needed covers for her notebooks, and propaganda books with covers where cheaper than the covers themselves!
