No worries! 1 is not enough at all - way too thin. That's barely a coverage coat to shadow the metal.

Glad you found the receipt too - sounds like somebody skimped on the paint!

I'm from the Richmond VA area and I have a factory grille that you can use until you get your problem fixed.

Hub said he wants to take pics with his meter in the grill for proof..


thanks for everyones grill offers.. I have a friend here that has offered me his but for now, my mind set is that if I take this one off, it very well could be permanent.

No matter how great a product is if they have horrible customer service I refuse to purchase with them.. learned that very quickly. A company should stand behind there product regardless. See how they would feel put in your shoes.

Hope all gets fixed.

DJ grill

i had the same problem just after 6 months, no salt, car is a weekend driver, stays undercover during the week. hand washed only with adams product and recommendations.
i took it off to repaint but it really needs to be blasted and powder coated to last, IMO, sanding is not going to work in the mesh area, IMO.
i purchased from a great vendor on camaro5, but when i sent the pics he said he would contact his DJ rep, yet to hear from him again, (9 month ago)
The pics are of the lower grill, since these pic where taken, the top has also started to do it:(

i really love the grill and the looks, so until i remove and powder coat it (my dime) i will do brush touch ups.

i can say this, the grill itself is made extremely well, it will outlast the car.... now with at least the OP and myself, a better paint job would go a long way
i am keeping this grill on my ride because i think its killer looking IMO

oohh I like the red!! Looks sharp! I love the look as well, but I am still on the fence. Am thinking of upgrading to a 1LE and hubby has said he will powder coat the grille to match my rims if I want.

I am sorry boys and girls, but if Lupe says the paint is garbage, it is!! Why wouldn't they make this thing out of aluminum anyway...for $1100 I would think it would be and it would be lighter. Since they are steel, they should be powedercoated for that price anyway!

Guys, this is the 2nd product I heard that was bought through Phastek that ended up with an issue. I bought a rear spoiler from them that wouldn't fit my 2011 Camaro. Had to supply photo's from the body shop to prove the point, but after 2 months of going round and round with them they finally took it back, confirmed the issue and gave me a complete refund. I also have the same DJ grille (bought mine from someone else 2 years ago and it still looks perfect) and it's my understanding it's aluminum with shouldn't rust. My 2 cents, the pictures indicate to me the prep work on the grille that preceeded the paint could be the root cause. I own a test lab one of the tests I run is the evaluation of plating systems for the electronic industry and I have seen conditions similar to that on copper based electronic products and when that has occured it was the prep of the base metal that caused the issue. I understand the grille is not copper, but the failure mode is very similar. I read a thread indicating conterfit products out there and this may be case as my DJ Phantom Grille appears to look "a little" different. Regardless, stay relentless with Phastek. They came around for me and hopefully will do the same for you. Good luck.

I can understand your frustration, but almost no VENDOR will send you an advance replacement of any product , especially after a year of having the product.

I spoke with Dan over the weekend, and he's moved to larger facility and needs a a couple of days to match shipments, etc.
