How do you guys think a black grille would look on a Redline?

Chrome!

Black wouldn't hide the intercooler

For black car's the black but the bezel needs to be done also (see Chef's bad a$$ ride)

For Thunder Gray I prefer the chrome to the black but I am looking into color matching. The Bezel's will be done also.

I prefer Chrome, but the one thing I like about the black is that it hides the huge gap between the hood and the grill if you look at the two pictures closely. On the Chrome one, it seems like there is a huge gap between the hood and the grill, and with the black grill you can only see the gap between the outer edge of the grill and the headlights, and it *almost* looks like a styling exercise. On the chrome one, it looks like really shoddy workmanship and bad quality control. :-)
That gap always pisses me off when I'm washing my car because water sits in there and you have to pop the hood to dry it off.

I was on the fence between Jon's and yours. This picture won me over. Now to see how the paint holds up.

I do think Jon's looks great, too.

The powdercoated grill will hold up fine, the frames are plastic and will chip over time. Make sure you take photos as soon as you get the mod completed.

I'll get a pic one of these days. Imagine yours with the factory hood. That's it!

Nice.

Hood is extreme composites or Spectre?

Rob,
I think your question is for me, Extreme Composites from GB on Forum.
Not sure if they still offer it.

Black on black paint. Chrome on silver paint. Those other paint colors can just flip a coin.

Yeah, but the Sport Grill with multi-color neon is the shizzle!

I like the black grill if the trim is blacked out as well.

I personally like the look of the black, but selected "Chrome" only 'cuz the V really stands apart with it's signature grille... ('cept for all the wannabe's)

My vote does NOT mean that I don't like the black... in fact... I think it looks bad ass... but... Chrome has a slight edge...
