Car looks awesome!!! How big of a pain was it to get those GM GFX chrome exhaust surrounds off? I have wanted to do black chrome on all my chrome parts, but those exhaust ports seemed like I would need to take either the bumper or the exhaust off to get to it. I also like how you did the mesh in the openings as too. How do you have those held in place?

The exhaust trim comes off pretty easily if you have a aftermarket exhaust. I've heard it can be a real pain if you have the stock mufflers still on. Also the mesh piece is welded into the trim piece from the inside. A guy at a muffler shop had them welded in nicely in 20 minutes, then I brought them in to get powdercoated. Overall, im pretty happy with how it came out. Should match well with my new wheels

Ive been thinking about maybe one, but worried about the fit and quality. Right now my maggie is actually rubbing slightly on the bottom of my hood and has worn some into the hood pad. Any comment on the fit/quality of yours? I like yours and a couple of others, decisions decisions, ha
