I hate the chrome fender grille thingies on my EXT! I think they look pretty bad. I thought I had found an improvement for it by purchasing platinum ones that are mostly body color, but it looks like you still have to paint the things anyway!Anyone paint their stock ones black or know of aftermarket body color that arent blinged out? Better yet, any platinum owners with black ones decide they want more bling and want to sell me their stockers??? Any ideas, plastidip is looking like a cheap option!!! HAHA-n8

^ Oh gotcha, thanks for the heads up! Been away from the caddy forums for a while and lost track of the various models!

That's just the the factory premium vents. My truck is a premium so that's just the way it came, but the look of them is a big part of why I prefer that package.

if you hate the side vent grills you could all ways remove your fender and install a yukons fender will fit perfectly and wont have side vents

I'm going to switch to the Platinum's or find a way to paint them and the under the mirror chrome which I don't like. I'm still looking for the best way to do this as well, so interested in this thread as well...

^ My plan is to vistit some of the GREAT auto body places here and tell them to let me know when they have a black caddy in the shop, and perhaps I can drop by and have mine sprayed at the same time. The mirrors and ugly fender grill should be able to be sprayed with ease, but it does not bother me enough to worry about it too much.... but if I could find a deal I would do it!

When I went a close by body shop they said the paint won't hold well on these plastic pieces, so basically they told me they can't do it?
