    If you roughed up the chrome to paint it black..... your SOL. Check craigslist or ebay, I think they would be your best bet.

    I will be selling my chrome grille in the next few weeks once I buy my new one. (Waiting on my cousin to get his satoshi grille in the mail so I can buy his stock one.) Would have to ship it from Louisiana, but if you can't find one closer/sooner I'm sure we can work out a deal on it.

    I can't take the credit for that.
    There was a thread a couple weeks ago when everyone jumped on that deal.
    I just saved the URL in case I wanted to buy one later.
