I've been waiting to see what the black chrome grill looks like. Think I will opt for the bottom section only. Thanks for posting.

Really? Even if it's Plasti-dip smoke? I've seen the blachrome finish in person. Too bland, it doesn't pop or look clean...

havent seen plasti dip smoke, but I know i love black chrome

my car is silver, im not a huge fan of blacking out all the chrome its nice to see something different


I just looked at a pic of plastidip smoke- looks gray/anthracite looking to me

----------

I wanted some engine parts done in black chrome, no one would do them. THe rim services are basically a plastic coating and they will only do rims.

so I did myself. I loved it.

I like black chrome myself. But not on mesh. It doesn't show well. Too much shine, I guess. If it's got shine, it looks too close to straight chrome. It's why I went with a straight black when powdercoating my V1 steel mesh grilles. Gloss black would've been hard to decipher with the eyes...

I am waiting to see what the part number / Luke's price is. They told us this would be available shortly, 9 months ago.

Luke is a parts guy from Lindsay Cadillac (see the ad cubes on the right ... I've got an ad cube there too)

Here's my best price on the Black Chrome grille kit
#22901748
$799.00 - list price
$671.16 - forum price

the discount on accessories doesn't seem like much compared to service parts because the normal markup to the list price is way less on accessories than it is for normal service parts
