Did a small grill mod, check it out.

Postby Hawaiian punch [OP] » March 5th 2008, 2:58am

I am all about being diferent even if its a slightly diferent thing I do, so heres something I thought some of you might be interested, I cut out the chrome section of the stock grill part and blacked out the actual grill's.

The reason for this was I wanted the head lights section to stand out more then it did with the chrome strip going across.

before.....

and after....

some of you prob wont like it, some will.

I like the grill like that.
The primary reason I went with Safari instead of Astro was the grille. I didn't like the chrome strip all the way across the middle.

That's exactly how I felt when I painted my grille black. I ended up painting the bowtie toupe (my 2nd interior color) and glued it on.

Here is a picture of mine without the bowtie.

Now on yours I really like the little bit of chrome on the ends with the composite headlights. That really looks nice.
