Question $60 Mod

Well I finally broke down an decided on a new billet grill. I bought it off ebay for $60 shipped and was very suprised at how much I actually liked it after I put it on. The top metal piece was a little bent when I recieved it and a couple of scracthes on the face of the grill but I was able to bend the top metal piece back into place and I was happy for only spending 60 bucks.

Install only took 15 minutes. Next step is to find out if I can powder coat this grill black.

Has anybody done this yet?
Does anybody know where I can get this done, I live in West Phoenix?

check the size of your photo's that seems to be the most common reason. try getting them down to like 640x480.

Looks like reducing the resolution that much helped. Thanks

I got it off of ebay. If you go to ebay store and type autopartsgallery it will bring you to everything they have and then you can find the grill there. I just asked the seller if they had the bumper grill as well. I think it would be another great additon to the car without dropping too much money.... I will keep you posted on what they say.

Hope this helps

Hey AZblackpathfinder,

i just checked out the ebay store for autopartsgallery and saw that he still has some grills left. I'm thinking about buying one. I just wanted to know how does it fit on? do u have to zip tie it on or does it actually bolt/screw on?

Thanks

It bolts on over the existing part of the grill ( the black plastic mesh part). At first I was kinda worried about the grill falling off somehow at high speeds but after I put it on, it seems to be pretty secure. Hope this helps
