                  Try out a chrome grill, you might not like it. I put my spare grill on to see what its like and I hated the chrome, I thought I was sick of the black though. Definately staying black.

                    Yeah, I think on some colors I can deal with chrome (reds, blacks) but silvers definitely look better with that black contrast.

                    Car is coming along nicely man, it's going to look like whole new car with fresh paint.

                            the supplies. i'm doing it myself. makeshift paintbooth in the barn, paint gun, power sander, etc. paint and materials should end up being roughly $250-300. (already have the paint gun and power sander from a friend, who is helping with paint). i need to weld in a new rear valence cuz mine is pretty messed up.
