man. not lately though cause we've had 4+ feet of snow here in ct. cause of that, the grill was ripped off, and the paint came right off the front face and licence plate cover and rear valance. so looks like i have lots to do come spring time. for the compliment though. we'll see how it goes.

I like the grille insert material. How solid is it vs things coming off the road?

its held up ok. i only had to replace it once. this is gonna be twice cause of all the snow we've had. but it all depends on the reinforcing on the bottom, in my case with the ghetto rigging, i used zip ties and 1/4" brake tubing. i only did that cause the spoiler was kicked in by punks. but heres what i was going for, even though the billet is $$$ i used mesh...

Nice GP! The billet grille looks good, but so did yours. The more often the grilles fall off, the more practice you get!

thanx guys! it needs a good cleaning as i live here in the northeast and this winter literally beat the bloody **** out of it. thats where id like to find a lifted k5 blazer with some mattrax.

@danthurs:nice bonnie! the ws6 with the little tips of the hood are very unique! tell me about the name change to ssexi? cause if i had money i was going to do the same thing to my gp with the set up i have now plus a ws6 hood, twincharged l67, custom one off targa roof, and all that good stuff, and i was going to call it a gtx/r.
