Re: Plastic bumper colour doesnt match metal bodywork colour.

Hmm ..the whole front plastic panel covered in carbon fibre or some part of it?

Ive included a couple of pics (no "boy racer" sniggers from the gallery )
2nd pic is a bit unfocused ,but you should be able to see the colour difference and the idea of the little dragons as camoflage.

They are inexpensive,like 5 for a pair .
Opinions :
Do they just draw attention to the seam/colour difference or improve things?
As I said if it was just a panel gap no big deal,its mainly the colour change from one panel to another.

What I could do is peel them off and remount them so that all of the dragon body is on the plastic side of the seam and just some of the tail overlaps the panel join.
Since the dragon tail is black,I could cut right thru the sticker where the panels join .
Other options might be decals/stickers of a different design perhaps even of a light silver/bronze colour mounted on the plastic part .
Something not too obvious but enough to take the eye away from "woah he must have had the front panel resprayed after an accident" look
