    Still looking good. Because i didn't remove the lower grill, the chrome surround has peeled in a few spots because it doesn't extend below the body work and i assume the bodywork is scraping against it a little. Eventually i will get around to pull out the lower one and re painting it but you can tell unless you are up close.

    One of my headlights is doing the flicker thing. When I pull my front bumper to swap the bulb I'll use that as an excuse to pull the grilles and P-dip mine black as well.

    Your lower grille is upside down. Look at the radius.

    Lol. Oops I wondered why it fit so weird! Oh well looks like it is living that way until I take them both out again. Thanks for the heads up.

    Woah woah woah you plast-dipped your whole car? The rims? What about your radiator there? Now I'm confused. Looks good though.

    Uhhh.. If this is indeed what the picture shows, I would have most definitely NOT plasti-dipped the radiator... There's absolutely no way that spraying plastic type coating on your cooling fins is going to help things...

    For me, all that rat's nest of hardware, wiring and plumbing in the background kill the black grill look.

    No guys. I sprayed the crap behind the radiator with flat black. This really helps from being able to look right through the mesh and see all the crap behind it.

    Yeah me too that is why I sprayed it flat black and it is blending in much better to date.

    I got a small chip on my upper grille. But that was from my installer scraping it on something when he had to take it off to do my cam. tape it off real quick, sprayed two coats. wala; like new again

    How are the wheels doing? My stockers are pretty scraped from the previous owner and I don't feel like powder coating or anything. I like stupid easy projects that are reversible so that looks like fun.
