Hi, I am new to the forum, and registered b/c I think I am ready to do something about my Flex by myself. Before, it was serviced in a shop only.

Anyways, I have prepared a pic of what I am planning to do. That os only a scheme, and now I will be talking only about the front end.

Now, the front grilles plus surround have to be orange. Now I cannot set up my mind, whether it's better to do vinyl or paint with some matte orange paint. Yet I believe vinyl is better, since I can take it off when I decide to sell my Flex. What would you choose - paint or vinyl?

Now, see the yellow arrow in the pic. That is the next part of my project. I want to grab an amber side marker like on the newer BMWs and install it right over the fender:

Now, I checked every single side marker for 2013 Flex, including universal stuff on e-bay and haven't found anything that will fit.

https://www.ebay.com...RUCK&MYear=2013- here's what I was looking through.

I was wondering, if anyone ever thought of such sort of mod? Or maybe you saw such side marker in some shop?

Or I even thought maybe I can hook up side markers off some BMW on my Flex?

Any ideas are appreciated!!!

Since you're doing something as, shall we say wild, as orange on a dark car, I would strongly suggest vinyl.  That way when you're ready to sell, it can be changed back to normal.  If you look at it when done and wonder why did I ever do that, you can easily undo it.  Good luck.
