Hello All, I see a few people in the Exterior Modification section have talked about swapping the entire front to the GT version. I also had a similar idea as others to just vinyl wrap the grille section so I mocked up a few pictures and wanted to share. Please disregard my lack of photoshop skills, the pics are only for ideas. I would love lots of options like these since the large painted grille is my least favorite part of the car.

The "mustache" suddenly becomes a big smile when you do that and all I can see is a cartoon dog.

Done, was thinking of doing this one yesterday so see below...again quick crap photochop so be kind. :) One with no grille on the side of the fog lights, one without allowing to fill up more of the grille.

The same cartoon dog is there either way, just the nose is a different color. On rapid red it looks more like a clown than a cartoon dog. Better than a catfish though...

Try photoshopping everything below the mouth to make it black. I'm guessing that would look better. Maybe a black wrap down there would be good. With that maybe the grill would be ok as is, no wrap.

A quick sloppy paint shop already looks better

I had a Red 2005 Mustang GT with REDFIVE license plate....it was a hit at the the Star Wars Episode 3 Premiere...had people taking pics of it, haha. I've not had a red car since to put the plate on unfortunately. As far as the Mach E, I've never liked darker Red on cars so I ordered Space White and will wrap it with another color if I decide to. I wish there was a bright Red, I would totally have ordered it.

There was an early prototype with black below the mustache that I really liked:

Also, I may have found the issue with giving folks the ability to easily wrap the "nose". It could end up like these. P-51 Mustang and well...you'll see.

I love Space White. Was my orig color before the GB FE became available. Just throw on some red racing stripes and you have your X-Wing.

love the idea and hope someone comes out with one. similar to the GT would be great (slight carbon fiber/grill effect). give it a more distinguished nose and some chip protection too i guess. if the emblem isn't too difficult to remove, a single sheet (without a cutout) would look cleaner and probably easier to install.

This would be simpler to do than changing the grill, and this looks great just like this. they should be able to use black wrap, less shiny than this, more like the black plastic next to it, when the clear vinyl wrap over it along with the rest of the front.
