New fogs, blacked out pony

Just finished installing a new front grille on my 2013 GT, and blacked out the front pony. I really didn't like the look of the original grille we're stuck with here in Canada, way too much chrome for my taste.

I kept my valence fog lights, threw in an HID kit and wired them up to a separate switch and relay rather than to the daytime running light system the Canadian GTs have. I hooked the grille LED fogs to a separate switch and relay as well, so now I can have either (or both) sets of lights on at will (not 100% legal I know, but what the heck, gotta live a little, right?)

Thanks! I removed it from the grille by gently prying off the round clips that hold the pony in place, then had it painted in satin black at a shop. Did my hood vents in the same color.
