: Going to install a E&G Classic Style Grille

03-19-13, 02:12 AM
I just purchased a E&G Classic Style Grille (Part# 1986-0101-06) for my 2008 Cadillac DTS. I've already looked-over the installation instructions and it doesn't look that difficult, but I wanted see if anyone has installed one of these grilles and if anyone has any tips for installation. Thanks.

I guess I'm on my own with this grille. Oh well, wish me luck members.

Well you are not exactly alone...just I've never done anything like that. I see the different grills advertised and wonder how
it would actually turn out. I hope you post a few pics of your finished product, I'd really like to see them. I do wish you luck!

I'm going to get the mesh grille on my car

which is better mesh or the bars? I hate how at night teh headlights shine thru to the rad. which grill will give you the most coverage to prevent that?

03-25-13, 08:21 PM
I must admit I've never seen this type of grille: I always associated the E&G grille with the mesh one. This one kinda makes the car look like a Lincoln with its "waterfall" look...

Today I installed the E&G Classic Style Grille and it was a mini-headache. The grille looks awesome, but E&G's instructions were lacking.

I'm going to be in San Diego next week and I'll be looking out for this - interesting!

Looks good I really like that over my mesh e and g

Looks good. I installed a replacement grill on mine a while back without instructions and can vouch that it is a bit of a headache. Luckily, it's much, much easier than changing a headlight.

That looks very nice! Wonder if people will ask you if it's a new model?

@hazcaddy: Yeah, I'll be around town. Gonna try and install my 22" wheels.
@big greg: Thanks, I like it better than the mesh too.
@RubirosaGGatsby: You're brave with no instructions, I heard that headlight is a nightmare.
@Asguard726: Thanks. That new CTS looks sweet!

I luv the look of the bar grill at night cuz you can't see thru it. can you see thru your mesh at night? can we see a night pic of yours?

I can't believe my phone won't post pics I even crop them and there still to big sigh

@big greg: Try photobucket. It usually re-sizes the pictures automatically.

In the spirit of Animal House, you need to spray-paint "EAT ME" on your radiator for anyone crass enough to inspect your grille at night.

03-31-13, 09:25 PM
I'd buy the mesh grille once you get it off.

Heres the pic at night. Sorry it took so long.

That's a real nice grille, and a nice set of wheels that you have. Looks good in white diamond.

04-11-13, 08:58 PM
wow !! i am so torn lol the mesh and the bars both look so good, not sure which one to go for, the night
pick of the mesh looks great, doesn't look like you can see thru it when lights shine on it. hmmmmmmmm this is a tough one lol

Haha what a dilemma

05-02-13, 09:28 PM
My issue is I love the classic bar grill but I can't install one on my b/c I have ACC and they only make mesh grilles for ACC equip Cadillacs.

05-03-13, 09:45 AM
I wish they had a black mesh. Then I'd be sold.

05-03-13, 12:24 PM
Have it painted.
