I like the look of the chrome grill pieces but don't want to spend the ridiculous amount of money for them. What do you guys think about getting like a silver chrome looking spray paint and use it on the two metal grill pieces. I think it would look pretty nice but I kind of want to get an opinion from others?

I removed my grill/honeycomb pieces and painted them white to match the car. looks really cool with the chrome trim around it. going to do the same to the bottom pieces around the fog lights.

I have not removed the bottom ones yet cause mine are like double sided/ 3m taped in..... i used Dupli color paint and clear to paint the top ones. Really easy to remove, use a small screwdriver and pop off the chrome then do the same for the honeycomb grille. post pics when you get done.

Im DYING to get my new grille on so my car will no longer look ghetto with only the top gunmetal grilles! haha.

I bought those grilles for my car and returned them. Did not really like the diamond cutout design. Like the honeycomb look better.

i know the 3m tape is a pain in the arse.
my bf did mine.

use masking tape to avoid scratching ur paint around ur grilles
use a screwdriver to pry up the old grille a little bit, carefully, leave the screwdriver in as a spacer, then using a long razor knife cut the 3m tape all the way around, top, bottom, and sides.
then once it's cut it should come out pretty easy.

he suggest putting it on ramps or a lift to get it higher so that it's easier to work on.

before:


hope that helps you some
