z28 grill on 1LE w/ RS question

Does anyone know if the z28 grill will fit on a 1LE with the RS package? I was wondering if the removal of the chrome lining will leave some visible holes.

The link to the grill is here: http://www.shopchevyparts.com/exteri...-92282051.html


Also, if anyone has added the z28 grill to their 1LE, please post pictures.


thx in advance for the help.

There are some who have done it, you will lose the chrome strip above the grille, but the strips above the headlights stay.

There is some discussion on this on page 2 of my Flowtie write up. I have pics on that post:

there is a pic from xTOXICxDEATHx on the Z/28 parts list thread:

Removing the chrome lining around each headlight will leave visible holes, but you can leave those 2 chrome pieces in place with the Z/28 grille

Are the holes really all that visible or are they slightly hidden from view when casualy looking at the front of the car?

Wow, I was hoping it was just a screw hole. Guess it's staying on.

Someone on the FB 1LE page removed the entire chrome strip and used JB weld (sanded smooth) and vinyl graphics to cover the hole.

I'm satisfied with the OEM RS grille, so I'll just leave it as-is for now.

From the above pic you posted above, is it just that rectangular hole, one on each side?

You can't really tell in person. Looks worse in photos.

Funny that the Z28 grill is the thing everyone wants.

Coming from the Mustang world, the 2010-2014s came stock with a "honeycomb" style grill that was a PITA to keep clean and looked somewhat generic. One of the first things everyone did was upgrade to an aftermarket that was simpler and sleeker.

Going from SS to Z28 grill seems the opposite to me. I guess it comes down to the Z28 allure . . .
