Great car Ned!
Either that, or OEM corner lights with a black frame and background. It looks like you have the black inserts for the headlights, so that makes the all clear corners stick out more.
Another option for the grills would be the body color grills. The slats are still black, but he frame would be white. That is what I did, and it looks good on a white car. If you are going to have a body shop paint them, you may want to consider taking your mirors apart, and having the black parts painted white. I had that done as well, and it looks really good. The black parts of the side view mirrors always bothered me, and they don't age well. Just some things to consider. Honestly, the car looks great just as it is. Good work.
