Maybe buy some new headlights if you don't like yours? Not being a smartass, just saying. If I were you I'd just go ahead and buy some black ones off Ebay. The grille looks great though. Good job.

Or if you look around enough on here you might find somebody selling some stockers for pretty cheap and you could just mod them yourself(not that hard to do).

I thought a full charged battery would be just as good as it. I did think of putting something there to cover it cus that did crossed my mined but I didn't cus I didn't think it would b to bad. So I didn't put anything there. I checked it out after I painted it and it doesn't have much paint on it so I say it's pretty good
