I'm thinking put the lower grill back on... the chrome accents match up with the chrome on the wheels and pulls it all together.

The day pics look really good. The night pics were tricky 'cause they overexposed the grille and made it look ricey, which it really isn't.

Keep it. Fits your personality and Bonnie's wild hair...

Like this:



Personally, I like the stock grill better with the Heritage grill. I think it's a better match.

BAH!! I'm an idiot...

I agree with Mlee and Gtavit -- it looks better when it's on, imo.

And, dude -- I missed the whole painted heritage grille thing! Looks GREAT!

Now that I look again... I think you should paint the Heritage Grill to match the hood spears not visa versa...

Actually, I am having the spears painted on to match the grill. It would cost too much and be a pita to paint the grill to match the flat vinyl stripes.

But I have decided to put the lower grill back on and paint it black.

The lower grille should look good painted black.

I'd like to see a black grille, but with a chrome ring around it like the 69 RS grille had. I think your car would look much meaner without any orange on the exterior. Black and chrome only. I wonder if one of those chrome plating companies can make your grille look like this, maybe even a light shade over the headlights too.

PQ-
I got my car back today. The TPMS sensors I bought from the dealer (GM sensors) are in my wheels now and working great. They stayed paired with the system the whole way home from the shop (about 40 miles). With the other sensors, the signal was lost after about 15 minutes.

Too late for that. But I maybe my next set of wheels will have a little orange in them.

Cool. I'll have to get some. Once I find my vibration, I may have different wheels to put them on. So I'm not worrying about it at the moment.
