Still a good thread. Most of the previous threads are on 90-91 grills. Not too many 92-93 grill DIY's.

He's probably one those Seppo's who had a Sense of Humour Bypass after 9/11.

I notice he's deleted that comment from the Leafblower thread!!

I didn't, someone else did. Oh well, what can you do. I guess everyone has their own opinion of what "useful info" really is. Didn't mean to step on anyones toes anyhow......

I started this today. got the 'wings' out, but decided to keep the "H" in the center. just for kicks, i sanded the chrome with 220 grit paper and made a brushed aluminium look. I need to put some mesh behind it but it looks okay. going to live with it for a week and see if i like it.

did you have the chrome covering? is that part paintable? without the chrome housing, the thing looks like crap so i know i have to keep it. i'll take a pic tomorrow and post it.

I just scuffed everything up with 200 grit sandpaper before I went wild with the flat black.....chrome and all. Also, wiped everything down with some paint thinner to degrease before coating.

Ha....no I have not, I guess that you could. I really perfer the clear-coated OE paint, it's a bit more durable than rattle can. If you want the bumper black, just pick up a new OE cover....the fresh black Eurathane has a great look unpainted, and there's no paint to chip!!

i might look at a new bumper. i have to replace the lip that was stolen a while back. dont ask me why but someone stole my front lip. they used a hacksaw or something cause there were little half screws in my driveway...fact is thats really what made me notice that the lip was gone. good times. i cut out the bumper wings also and decided that the H had to go.

Hey since I don't want to create a new thread on things that have already been covered I will ask here: guru

What kind of paint are you using??? I used Krylon exterior trim paint and it is flaky... my grill looks like crap with a bunch of paint chips. Yeah I sanded it and washed it first.

Just prepped everything well, and used good 'ol Krylon. I plan on color-matching the grill (except the wire) when the car is repainted.....

You should try www.rockauto.com CAPA certified bumper covers decient price. I got a rear bumper cover from them. Shiping is a little high though.

Believe it or not, it's a galvanized gutter-guard from The Home Depot / Lowes. They are about $3 each for a guard that measures about 5-6"x48".
