    For those of us that are stuck with the chrome grill, I was thinking of a cheaper, easier way than painting the surrounds so I contacted one of the guys from another car forum that I belong to and he makes miracles with vinyl. I just want to know as to how many people would be interested in doing this? That way I can negotiate a price and maybe try to get some pictures of this done.

    Whats wrong with just painting it right the first time? LoL Masking tape works wonders when used properly :)

    Either that or put a feeler out for someone that wants a chrome grill, I'm sure theres a few!
