So many people upgrade to the mesh grill, I'd bet the stock ones can be had cheap. I wonder if its possible to chrome the plastic (like poly-styrene models). That would be too 'flash' for my my tastes but would stand out!
is your car color white diamond or pearl, i have a white diamond sts and am seriously thinking of doing this? thanksHere is a pic of my painted grill.
Did it myself, removed the grill, then removed the emblem in the middle and the chrome trim.
Local auto body supplier puts actual colors in spray cans. Used white primer, then several coats of white diamond, then several coats of clear coat.
Color does not match perfectly, as I didn't have the luxury of re-mixing to match, but the slight contrast actually makes the grill stand out a bit.
My grill was a bit scratched and faded, so I am very pleased with what I got out of two days time and $65.00 investment.
Interestingly, the 1955 Chrysler Imperial had a grill that would remind you of the 2005-2007 Cadillac STS.NO ! Not that kind of dating, Year dating.
There used to be a Luxury car by Chrysler, called the Imperial.
It Was the flagship of Chrysler, and in the 50's it was really chromed,
loads of dress up stuff, Mainly Pure Luxury.I think a President,not sure,
which one, rode in one.anywho,the grille it had was similar to the STS,
I remember it well, as i followed customized cars, and a very close friend,
of mine , took a 55 chevy, used an Imperial grille, Merc wagon tailights,
which fit in the hole, and looked great,he did other stuff, and entered,
it in a contest, and won one of them, but never the big one.
anywho, Imperial never made it the color of the car,as back then,
grilles were chrome, or shiny stuff of some sort.....
I think dark colors would LOOK great,
but lighter colors would NOT show up as well .Just my opinion.
Thought I would mention it :halo:
