Yeah, but I can't seem to find just the grill inserts. Though it would be nice to replace the whole front bumper, I don't wanna go through that expense just now.

I used stuff from Wallyworld called "bumper chrome" by Plastikote, but it came out bright silver - works for me though

it seems like they would probally give them to you at a junk yard.
IMO I would put a grille like Gumball'* or mine in. It stands out alot more and is shinny so you can see it from a far.

I think Silverbullet looked up the price from GM....something rediculous like $50. Below is copied from my post back in June.

I went with silver on mine... and they are pretty bright! Be sure to chose a paint that will adhere to plastics, and chip resistant. I painted mine back in May... 400 miles each week and no chips whatsoever.

Recognize these? Okay…so they’re upside down…

They come out very easy…if you do it the right way… with the hood open, gently push up on the plastic front piece while pushing out the grill part. There’* two little tabs, one on each side. Be sure to push the grill OUT away from the engine bay…


There are three tabs on the bottom….

Default Easy does it...

Wow! That does look pretty easy and makes a big difference IMO. And $50 bucks from GM? Well, I guess I'll head to some junk yards instead. How they can justify $50 bucks for that is beyond me.
