    Yeah it kind of looks like the emblem is floating. What would help is either you paint the radiator and surrounding area behind the grill black, or put some thicker mesh in there.

    Paint everything behind it black and it'll look a lot better. Looks good though.

    If you paint the mesh a lighter coller than the background it will trick your eye to looking at the mesh instead of the radiator. Even painting the radiator support a flat black and the grille a high gloss black will help, just because of the shine from the sun.
