As for your roof rails I don't have any recommendations considering I don't have them.
Not really my style, but I like it!

Did you just use Rustoleum primer and paint from walmart on Grille?

As far as front window tint - what I was recommended once by Ziebart is to go with a little darker tint on front windows then from the outside they'll look identical with rear - the reason for that since windshield lets more light from the front it's good to go a little darker so front and rear look the same from outside. I did it on 2 vehicles and it looked awesome!
Yeah I actually did use rustoleaum. And that's a great idea on the the tint, if you look really close the front windows do actually look a tad lighter then the the rears. However, I have them as dark as I'm legally allowed to have in Chicago.
