Looks good. Not sure of your local laws, but were you planning on reinstalling front turn signals?

I have 3/4 inch bullet lights in the grille under the headlights for signals. And legally you don't require marker lights on the front, only signals bs one might frown upon this bit you can easily see them even at night
