    I'm toying with the idea of having my grill shell painted on my 03. Not sure what I'd use to fill it after. Billet or homemade... I haven't gotten quotes yet on the paint or I'd probably know already.

    Thanks Tiger.

    Does anyone know if the 5 lug and 6 lug grill shells are the same on the 01-04s? If so, I'll hit up the junkyards and pick one up to have painted.

    Hmmmm...http://www2.partstrain.com/store/index.php?Ntt=Grille&N=1725+11782+4294963700+11921

    Ground shipping is $40, but it'd probably be easier to paint than a chrome grill shell

    Ebay has probably the same part for ~$80 shipped.

    I guess I'll call some body shops in the area for a price on paint... can the fender flares come off easy? I haven't tried, but it looks like they're just bolted to the inner fender. Are they also stuck with the 3m tape?
