I would just like to reiterate, I'm glad I don't have this chrome.

On that grille, I would sand it with 1500 or 2000 grit. Prime it with Self Etching Primer and then Trim Black or white

If you're going to tint the heads definitely don't go white. It would look better in black with that

well this is what my bestie & a friend on the monte carlo forum "combo" photoshopped for me bout a week ago (they forgot the windshield visor lol)...still iffy on a few things but i just see that white grill totally being outta place. i think just like a flat/matte black would look a lot better then random chrome.

probably. they just didn't do it lol ryan also did a back shot of the tinted tails but didnt do the stripes so i'm either gonna have to learn really quick on how to do them or beg someone to do them for me lol ryan originally had the stripes skinny but i had brock expand them bcuz i thought it may look better since the bonne is soo wide & all.
this is what the original was like

I would paint the chrome part of the grill white and keep the honey comb part of the grill black. That would be the best look, IMO.
