    Re: Show us those GRILLS!!!

    I'm dyin' out here. My grill finally showed up all the way from London. Too bad it was for a Vauxhall Vectra. I have the Caddy badge waiting to go on but still no grille. The Vendor is Eurotuning Biz in the UK. This may have been a fluke considering their 100% satifaction eBay rating but just beware before handing over funds.

    the black grill makes the car look so much more agressive. I love it, especially cuz it only cost me about $10 and an hour or two of work.

    first took the grill off, then i wetsanded it with 800 grit sandpaper to roughen it up a little, taped off the caddilac emblem, and used a can of testors black spray followed by a couple layers of clear coat.

    Only one that I know of but it's one special Catera. The Lingenfelter Catera V.



    He made it by cutting a CTS-V grille to fit the Catera opening. I especially like how he recessed it.
