That’s an idea! I’m thinking it may look better without the chrome.

In case you haven't removed the foglight surrounds,before..make sure you pull them forwards and not outwards,as you'll likely snap off the rear locating lug otherwise ;)

Silver (to me) always looks so dull on other cars, but it really suits the rex. Especially on the R3 wheels.
