: 2010-2012 Lower Grille Mod $25

06-05-13, 02:22 PM
Could not find a lower grille chrome overlay by it self. Only ones available I could find were for upper and lower grilles. I had already purchased a 2013 grille and just wanted a chrome overlay. I read the forum and saw a chrome plastic overlay solution from Autozone but was looking for something a little nicer. Well at least nicer in my opinion. So I went with a Chrome wrap.

I purchased enough chrome to wrap the lower portion of the grille. Lightly sanded all parts I would be applying the wrap to and then cleaned using rubbing alcohol to make sure it adhered well. I used an X-acto blade to trim the pieces. Then used the Heat gun to make sure it wrapped all curves nicely.

I added some before and after pictures. Hope this helps someone. I am happy with the results. About 1 hour from start to finish. I probably took longer than most people will just being very careful.

OK, couldn't find any showtrenz.com. I believe the correct vendor is www.showtrix.com. They have the lower trim piece for $89.95 as stated. Also, have a bunch of other chrome stuff, if you are interested.
