Eggcrate Grille Paint Question
« on: March 14, 2021, 03:18:27 PM »
I had the grille off to replace the transmission cooler hoses and most of the plastic clips fell apart on me. While repairing them I realized that most of the paint has been weathered off. I want to repaint it but I can't find a good picture showing which parts were originally painted matte black and which areas were silver/fake chrome. Does anyone have a good picture or a really good condition grille they want to share info on?
