The more I look at your grill inserts, the more I like it.

It really does brighten it up with a nice contrast.

now for the cover? Hmmmm I'll have to see it in person.
Lol! I thought of you when picking out the paint. I remember you saying, "girl, you gotta paint your cova" (New England accent on cover). Of course, you meant black, but I like to be different...

Lol...its funny though, sometimes they're embarrased by me, other times they think its cool. I guess that'* the way it is with kids and parents no matter what they are like. My folks stopped over today in the middle of my project...they just shook their head and walked away wondering what happend their their "little girl". I told them I had been bitten by the BC Mod Bug

i really like it. it does a lot to brighten up the engine bay. and most importantly: IT MATCHES. its not some off-the-wall color. it matches and it does what you want it to do.

i may have to do that. once i decide whether or not im leaving it on.

[quote="singscountry1967"]Techy Ted - In person, the color is identical to my banner and nose badge. I'll take pics outside when the weather clears a bit to try to get a better looksee of the grilles. /quote]

I'll bet it looks great. Looking at the pictures again only the straight on shots look too bright, probably light from the flash reflecting back. The honeycomb pattern really shows up now. Well done.

It’* a little early to post in the meet section but how’* a WNY mini-meet at Letchworth sound? It was thinking of a picnic type meet when the leaves change color.
