Thanks Matt.

If anyone is going to do this make sure you get the 1/8 chrome stripping not the 1/4 or 5/16. The 1/8 fits pretty much prefectly so it won't peel off.

it looks good on your dark blue, but it may be too light and bright for my white. i just did a quick photochop to get an idea.

I also think the black goes best with our white cars. Just personal preference of course.

Wind and bugs hard on the paint?? I don't think so. As mentioned, I'd also clear-coat over the black, and bugs aren't much of an issue where I drive.

The 1/4" will be too big I think.

And I like the 3M adhesive everything I have used by them has been very strong.

Who makes that one?

I think this would be a good project come showtime at the autoshow. I put the venti's on and everyone loves'em. They look a little off to me cause the front needs more chrome. And your project popped in my head.

When they painted my Riv the kinda went hogwild and sprayed some pieces that are visiable when you look through my grill. I bet the chrome will divert the attentions.

Thanks for the product name I'll check it out.

I went to autozone today and that is the package.

Andy you should give it a try. It really looks great in person and only took me about an hour and $11.99. If you don't like the way it looks just peel them off won't do any damage and you only spent $12 on it. Can't hurt eh? wink

Goodluck with the install. Get a sharp pair of scissors to cut the strips. You will need tweezers to put the middle pieces by the "R" in there.

Just take it from them. They can't do anything do anything after you've already got the pics up. And just let them know you were drunk at the prom and dropped it. You will use it sober this time. beer

PostSubject: I Freaking Love My Custom Chrome Grill......   Tue May 08, 2007 2:50 pm

Lately I've Been seeing alot of 9th Generation Rivs in my area.......its wierd because before I got my car I never saw any, but now there all over the place.......but anyway.......Theres alot of Riv's in my area but I'm the only one with the Chrome Grill king

I saw a man driving a green riv yesterday, he was comming the opposite direction......we both hit a stop sign and he was just staring my grill down........

The Grill was an excellent idea (Thanks SpaceBar)

Now All I gotta do is get my 20" rims and I'll be all good.....

(I'll post pics of my grill when i get the chance)
