    ok so i got a replacement chrome one from a TW member , it was in better shape than my old, so it's on the truck now.
    I just cut off the chrome piece and washed it all up. I'll be ordering some silver mica pray paint along with prep accessories and decide what to do. Im thinking get the little triangles covered on the chrome piece then colormatch that. Not sure if im going to cut out the center or paint it... teaser pics included
    more to come

    oh and some douche bag bee stung my finger when I went to pick up the chrome part!!!!:eek:. didn't get me that good, not full release of poison lol

    added pic of the center cut out
    tabs in the center have been removed,I will cut out filler pieces for the sides from the old center section I removed..... ready for plastic welding???

    Sucks about the bee sting. Was the grill hard to take apart? Did you melt the tabs or cut them off. I'm thinking of doing the same thing.

    making a little progress... plastic welder and paint need to be ordered.

    I traced the missing spots, cut out filler pieces from the leftover part I cut out.
