Default grill question

Did the Honeycomb grill only come with SE'* and chrome trim like this? I'd like to find one without chrome trim so i could paint it.

SE and SSE are NOT interchangeable. You must get a 92-95 SSE/i. GM still has painted ones for about $70-80.

Huh, I must have a replacement grill in mine, or something of that sort. Mine is definately an SE, but has the honeycomb grill....

Check your RPO codes. It may be an SLE package.

Checked the code, and no H4U to be had. checked the VIN to make sure, and the spare cover matches the window VIN. My car is just a freak i guess.
\Apologies for the threadjack

I'm guessing a front-ender before you owned the car.
