Default Gutter guard grill

I made a set of gutter guard grills today. I'm only holding them in with zip ties for right now to see if I like them. I may just paint the stock ones. I think the "gutter" ones will restrict air flow.

doesn't look bad at all, if you don't want them I may have use for them so toss me some numbers if you ever want to get rid of them.

I like that look and can appreciate the work you put into making them, but personally I think you'll get the same effect and look if you just paint your original stock ones silver. I have done it, and so has Singscountry1967. Check her COTM posts for pics and you'll see what I mean. But again nice job though!

they look good... BUT... They won't last.

My dad used some Gutter Guard on a truck of his and when it gets cold a rock will go right through it. doesn't take much. so you'll probibly be replacing it offten.

Did that to my 2000 Acura TL. Looked good an no rock could get through it but the paint will come off especially if you wash the car often.

I used the gutter guard method also to determine if i liked the look. Then I decided to paint the originals. It'* been over a year and the paint still looks good, although they need some minor touch up.
