    05 limited grill

    I have a 04 DHS fully loaded but I LOVE the look of that 05 grill and thats the only thing missing. I've seen from previous threads that this grill is nearly impossible to come by. Searched ebay with no luck and called the dealership with no luck (discontinued)....!

    So my question is this.... has anyone modified their grill to look like the limited grill? Such as wrapped it in that chrome sticker material? Thats all our chrome frames are wrapped in... just curious because that may be what I'll resort to but may be difficult with all the curves.

    The "chrome" grille surround is stainless, and the limited grille is chromed plastic. Both are a mirror finish. "Chrome" vinyl has an orange peel surface, it would look odd IMHO.

    It's pretty difficult to find a place that can chrome plastic, and it's EXPENSIVE. I'd say just keep an eye out in Ebay for a limited one, at least for a while.

    Yeah your right... I like the limited one with the big emblem way better than getting my stock one chromed anyway. Well hopefully one sales soon! There were about 3 on there too when I first bought my car but I couldn't afford it and thought they were on there regularly like the e&g grilles.

    Have you checked the local Men's Mall or one of the online recyclers like LKQ or Yancey?

    Depends on your tastes. I like the limited grille. So many aftermarket mesh grills are just flat stock mesh, screwed to a very angular frame. They'd look better if both the frame and mesh were contoured.

    Nah... don't get me wrong the mesh is ok. I actually use to love the look of it at first but more and more it started to look kinda cheesy 2 me... BUT thats jus IMO. But its also what look your going for too as Moist put it. I tried attaching this dts with it but my app won't let me says its 2 large.

    It's not the app, it's the site. Just upload your pictures to www.photobucket.com, and post the IMG codes here.
