I have seen real C/F parts ie:

Brows: Line them up, and paint the part closest to the fender (c/f part exposed)

Hood : we have all seen this (would line with the brows)
Lip: could do this on the lip as well

Hmmm....the hood I was thinking just paint the from the lines that are on the hood which line oup with the grill. Now that u mention from the brows thats a great idea. Too bad i cant rep you again oh wait u dont need anymore ;)

I went with the greddy lip (at least i think)....found it on ebay and its PU. The wald just sits too low and I dunno how strong abs plastic holds up.
