First Time Acura Owner


Hi Guy's,
Just bought a 2016 Acura MDX Elite Package that will be delivered on Thursday.
I'm really happy to join this community
Already Thinking of blacking out the front grill / shield. Has anyone done this before ?
Thanks

of course, blacking out the grille isnt limited to MDX'es or even Acura's..
there's a whole vinyl wrapping industry that can change the color of cars.

today's vinyl has come a long way since yesteryear's. very easy to work with, if you want to do it yourself.
You can order vinyl from any online retailer you choose.
3M is the most popular and well known brand.
you can watch youtube to learn the wrapping techniques, but like all things in life, practice makes perfect

I wouldnt touch plastidip as the medium for changing colors, unless you have a paint-room and the paint gear.

Thank's Jusnspace for your answer when i decide to do it i'll post it on AcuraZine. I would have liked to see pictures if someone already did it on a white MDX just to see the result, i saw one on a black MDX and looks very good from another AcuraZine member : CalmSeasQuest , His is Black and it looks amazing.
Thanks

just do it.

it will look great, as long as you keep certain contrasting aspects...like the "outer lips" of the grille.
I tried googling for pictures, but not a lot of people mod the MDX.

Just do it. It will look great, my friend

Welcome to the forums.

Since this is a topic/technical issue which will require replies and discussion, this thread has been moved from the New Member Introductions forum to the model specific forum.
