No, but I was about to... I still may since I haven't gotten it off yet. The 5 that I have gotten in have made a world of difference. A few of the wires had rust on the coil posts. Also, did the SSEi come with factory iridiums? There'* AC/Delco ones in there now(IDT4 or IDR4 or something like that on it). I'm not sure how old they are and wondering if I should put the TR55'* in that I bought.

Here'* another thing I did yesterday. I used Duplicolor Chrome spray paint. Turned out pretty good I think.

Gonna let the sun come up before I go out and pull the hoist bracket and tackle #6. I'm gonna wait to put in the grille inserts since the paint seems a lil soft yet.

I just realized it'* raining out, and I dont have a garage...

Those grilles look good. I just did the same with my Brother'* grilles for his GP GT (along with the grille and hubcaps of my Structo truck, the paint shelf I have, my brother'* old exhaust, and the garden trailer I just bought my dad... I got a little carried away)

Did you do anything to prep the grilles, or just paint them?

Just washed them good with extreme green, rinsed them well, dried completely, then painted. It was still a little soft this mornin so I'm periodically hitting it with a hair dryer to dry it up.

Got the hoist bracket removed, 30 seconds later plug wire 6 was removed, most of it anyway, the retainer held onto the plug and the guts of the wire were spilling out. Got the TR55'* completely in now as well. Put my grille inserts back in too...
