No Heritage grill info yet however...........

I wanted to do something really custom and one off for mine. I have a connection for parts and phoned up for a replacement stocker to mess around with. $161.00 Canadian, 130bucks my cost lol. Very cheap so if you feel creative and you own a dremel they are really well priced and he said next day so no backorder. On a side note his computer mentioned chrome when I gave him the heritage grill part number. He said theres no price for one but there was another one not yet released for $410 dollars???? More than the heritage grill is so maybe theres a chrome one coming out?

I am already working on one based of the stocker. Stay tuned should have photos to post by the weekend.


I also can chrome the piece but its going to cost a fortune to chrome the grill my way. I dont like the cheap methods. I have a source that electroplates copper and nickle/chrome to plastics. Price $$$$$$$$

Post up a pic of this Herritage style you guys mention.

I am deleting the bowtie and also doing a few other things.

Now here is the deal if GM or any aftermarket company makes a chromed grill it wont be real chrome. it will be a PVD coating or Vacuum Metalized.

Mass produced parts have to be done this way for cost.

The method I mention is not cheap and we use this method on 250K Bentleys to chrome the lower grills and other parts.

We have a special product imported from France that gets sprayed onto the substate. It has a special blend of metal powder which conducts electricity for the electroplate process. Once its cured I send to my custom show chrome plater and he puts a few mils of copper, buffs to a flawless finish and then it gets finished off in the process.

When you get the grill back its almost double the weight and feels cold to the tough like a piece of metal.

I will try and get a price soon for the chrome but its a big piece and lots of undercuts to polish.

The regular french fry cuttter grill is available. The heritage is not yet. I deal with these guys all the time and he put an alert on the computer that basically will notify him the first second it becomes available.

Actually the parent Co. is based in the U.S...who farmed the job out to a Chinese "source", NOT to their Oakville subsidiary... Sorry, Thumper, to send you dumpster-diving...
