I personally found it easier to put the chrome strips on with the grill off the car. I just brought it inside and set it on the table and did all my work there. Much more organized too.

Would be neat, but no idea where you'd find one for our grill.

You could always do the chrome grill mod and then lay wiremesh behind it and glue it on....

what sucks is that i hate chrome...

I wanna black out the grille and get rid of all the other chrome on the car lol help

Am considering putting this:


Onto the Riv grill. Will buy one from a junkyard, cut off all the teeth and use adhesive after cutting the grill insert to fit on the back of the grill - most likely will have to cut off the R logo for it to work. The inspiration:

Jaguar XKR
