Bonnie hass really seriously pissed me off.............

Tropical storm Bonnie has the weather here all screwed up. I can't get a damn thing done outside like clean the pool, repair the fence etc., and the humidity and rain are not helping toward painting my bottom grill either. Ugh..................

Is it just me or does the Chevy badge point downwards with the heritage grilles?

Well, the angle is different. The emblem is actually NOT symetrical. The two protruding sides are bent to the same direction. It just looked like crap to me to have them bent upward. So I put it this way.

I guess they do this because of the angel it sits on the original grill.

something aint right with that red grille part, it should match the hood or vise versa, hood part looks more peach in the pics.

Id also carry the color into the back somehow, maybe paint the fenders gills that color.

He is going to get the spears painted on to match the grill. The vinyle or how ever you spell it has faded on the spears.

I wonder how it would have looked had you painted the grill to match the upper grill/spears instead of black...

No doubt. I always knew Bonnie would cause Mobile problems.

It would be easier to match the OEM IOM. Than try to match and aftermarket flat vinyl.


But I think Bonnie may be gone now. Thank goodness. She was driving me freaking crazy.

Are you sure the spears are a different shade than the grill or the light is on the spears and not as much on the grille?
