    Go buy one. They are only $850 New and painted. and then another $250 to buy two new fog lights....and another $350 for a lower CTS V grille....and $70 for new wheel liners. lol

    When I got my CTS about a month ago, I searched the entire nation on craigslist for a V bumper and I found one....AND it was the color I needed and it was in excellent condition. It took 47 emails to convince the lady to ship it to me. $350 total including shipping for the bumper. I retrofitted my original fog lights last night and capped off the caliper cooling port and today I am forming a grille out of some crap I got from tractor supply company. lol $350 and I got a a complete V grille setup.

    In other words, im da man. and you are going to have to get some extreme patience in order to get one at a good price. pics will be posted tomorrow when its finished. I am almost out of mods to do now and am satisfied with my cts. Stock silver grille, v bumper sexiness comin soon!

    My Chicken Wire / V Bumper / Stock Grille / hay bailer belt mod is done! YEehAw! haters are jealous. This is where its at!

    Notice that I also classed the car up by plugging the caliper cooling ports with bulk hay bailer belt from tractor supply company. $10 vs. $250 for new fog ligths. Im putting that money I saved towards some V side skirts.

    This is all I can post until I wax the bitch up tomorrow.

    @ dvlvs8... that chicken wire doesnt look all that bad considering the cost savings! pretty nice work.

    is the chrome strip above your grill painted, or is it just the picture that makes it look like that.

    @manoogia, nice car, nice rims, very clean mods. the rotors/calipers aren't that bad looking... some black calipers would look good tho IMO

    @dvlvs8, for the amount of money you did spend, it came out real nice!

    Thanks, I didnt paint the chrome strip. Its just dirty from vacation and dark out.
    The chicken wire (actuall, expanded metal) is actually two pieces. I couldnt find a long enough one yesterday at any of the local hardware stores. So I got impatient and used two pieces to make the grille. It shows up most in pictures, but still you can barely tell. I will eventually make a new one when I get a bigger piece of chicken wire.

    FYI - The chicken wire is NOT bare metal. So it wont rust. It is primed with etching primer, then coated with Duplicolor "chrome" paint, and then clear coated and baked in the oven. Should hold up well.

    WARNING. Do NOT buy universal grille mesh from the grilleking on ebay. It is so flimsy that the wind would bend it. Seriously! What he is selling is crap you can buy in home depot for a tenth of a price. It is a scam! The mesh is also so thin that it is barely visible on a car.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    Ok, here it is. I kinda want the real lower grille though now. What I have now sort of looks too aftermarkety. My last thing that i will do will either be the real lower grille or V side skirts. hmmmm???

    Mods:
    V Exhaust
    V Bumper
    Nav unit
    Volant CIA
    Painted calipers with Cadillac Emblem













    Heres how my rigged up fog lights look. I used epoxy for plastic. You can also see the hay bailer belt plugging up the caliper cooling ports. FYI the bailer belt has multiple layers of epoxy on them to hold them in place.

    you really need to make that wire one piece lol you can tell that it looks weird. you car looks good though.. kinda hate you for how cheap you got that bumper.. i paid like almost $1500 for everything. paint, lower grill, clear fogs...

    also once you find that full mesh piece, if it isn't expensive you should dip it in chrome.. or find chrome looking paint or something.. my 2 cents

    Thanks for the input. Yeah, I'm still looking for a solid piece of the mesh. FYI I painted it with chrome paint. Chrome paint sucks. Getting it dipped in chrome doesn't sound half bad, but then I should probably just go buy a V lower grille for that price, I would think.
