    Nice work so far. Should look very sharp when it's all back together.

    Has anyone painted the chrome horizontal bar that goes through the grill? I've been thinking it might look good body matched.

    I'm trying to get the chrome stuff off of my grill right now and then I'm going to do a black & white grill and then when I buy a new bow tie it will be white.
