    Should I white out my STS Grille ?

    Hi guys,


    I am looking to possibly white out my cadillac grill to match the picture shown below, what do you guys think?

    Should I, or should I just leave it the way it is? Currently I have the non platinum upper grill. I like both styles, the only reason I was thinking about possibly whiting it all out is that my lower grill is platinum and my upper grill is not. So I was thinking might as well white it all out, it might look better, and also match. The colour of my cadillac is also diamond white, same as the picture below.
    Thoughts?

    Sometimes a little contrast is a good thing (my vote is not to), but if you like the look, then the answer for you is yes. An aside (to the picture above); if the front license plate is not a state requirement (in your area), the one shown in the picture would be gone (if it were mine).

    I have a 2007 sts 4 V6 white diamond color exterior and have been thinking about painting my front grill to match the paint on thr car too. The grey is all marked up and faded. Not sure if i wnat to take the grill off myself and paint it or take it to a body shop and let them do spray it. Seems like a easy paint job once you take the grill off the car.

    I actually think this would be a tasteful modification. Definitely if you're going to do it, spend the money and do it right.

    i'd say white out the "fins" not the mesh.

    white out the chrome trim, and the grids/fan... not the mesh tho. If you did the chrome trim and the plastic grids/fins it would look very nice... with that said, the picture you posted in this thread doesnt look bad at all tho. One question tho... will rick ross be riding around with you? HAHA

    Hahah. Actually I like the idea of leaving the chrome surrounding the grille as is. I also like the way this grille in the pic with everything but the surrounding chrome is white but leaving the inserts black might be pretty nice too.
