White grill cover on warm white? Too much?

Kind of wanting some opinions on painting the grill\bib white instead of silver on my warm white FJ? I have sat outside for a long time thinking about it but I'm still drawing a blank on what it will end up looking like. I'd leave the "TOYOTA" part silver, and of course I still will have the other silver accents. This is a spare grill cover that I purchased lastnight so, worse case I'll just have to throw back on the old one but I'd rather not waste what little credit I have at my local body shop, which should be enough to paint the grill cover and the spare tire cover.

Check on Google for FJ's in Dubai. I saw some with huge wheels and all white (all the trim pieces were painted) that should give you an idea.

Re: White grill cover on warm white? Too much?

I have always been a huge fan of the "Blanked out" look no matter what color it is. Almost ever car i owned I painted everythng to match but have only seen the Black FJ's done this way comnpletely... In my mind it looks really wicked and think you should give it a shot.. Never know might start a trend with the white Fj crowd

Re: White grill cover on warm white? Too much?

About painting the "Toyota" black, I intended just to paint the grill cover white while leaving the mesh black. Don't think silver Toyota with the rest of the silver accents will look good?

Re: White grill cover on warm white? Too much?

I thought about doing the same to mine by color keying the bezel, mirrors, and door handles. But after looking at alot of pictures I like the black out look better, like the older trail teams edition. Just looks more aggressive.
