    Affordable OEM-style chrome/stainless grille replacements?

    I'm searching for replacements for my stock grilles (upper and lower), as well as the lip on the hood. I really like the OEM style, and I'd like to stick to the same look.
    My plan is to attempt a black chrome paintjob using Duplicolor Shadow paint. However, I don't want to paint my original parts.

    I've found a number of grilles on ebay, amazon, and some of the larger websites. I can't tell what's good and what's not, though... and it seems the grille combo alone is going to run about $300 (I haven't found the hood lip anywhere yet.)

    So, I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction of parts that look at least close to OEM, that won't break the bank! If I like the looks of my paintjob, I can always upgrade to a higher quality piece. I don't want to spend more than I have to for an experiment!



    If anyone knows of any black chrome stuff (not totally black, mind you), that would be good to know as well!

    I just ordered this one because it said "Made by OEM approved & ISO certified manufacturers in materials that meet or exceed strict OEM requirements"
    Whatever that means LOL should be in this week, I'll let you know how it looks when it does!
    I'm planning to black out the mesh portion using the new craze plastidip. The black chrome shadow has me thinking though...

    Re: Affordable OEM-style chrome/stainless grille replacements?

    Just an update: received the grill today and I'm not a fan. The badge is oversized, looks like the size of an Escalade badge and will look out of place I think on the car. On the plus side, it seems like the quality is decent, wire mesh for the grill and plastic for the rest. I'm in the process of returning and will order a different grill- hopefully.

    Additionally, as I stated I was planning to paint/plastidip the grill and it came with the oversized wreath already mounted...
