Default Black grille no more!

Finally I painted it. i could not stand the black on it, so I painted it white to match the 93+ SSE/Eis.

Before -


After! -



Gives it a more aggressive stance, IMO.

Looks good.

Can you post an after photo from the same angle as the before?
(Just for better comparison purposes)

Definitely an improvement!! I never even noticed it was black before! IDK why they didn't do it white to begin with.

looks nice the after picture looks neat, the new paint job matches better with the overall white color of the car.

Nice!! I painted mine silver for the same reason you wanted the white - to make it stand out more. Good work, but more pics please!!

Here we go. I had to push her back further to take the pics, as there is no supercharger on it at the time... stupid ND bearings....

I think 94-95 actually did come bodycolor. Could be wrong though.

Looks good t'me!

Nice pics. The plate holder matching the body color is a BIG plus too.

I agree that the color match looks much better. Especially on the white vehicles.
