I had some free time tonight to do some more rough cutting/sanding and test fitting.
I've been adding a coat of black paint to the mesh each night this week, so that should be good - here it is installed
Here you can see where the mesh sits in relation to the bumper
Even though it is not what I originally set out to do, I think I am going to leave the grille like this with the badge centered instead of moving it down.
Since I am not a body shop guy, I just know that adhering the badge to the bottom of the grille and adding body filler around it to make it look like the Prodrive grille will either (a) take me a year and a day which I don't have or (b) look like dogcrap.
So here are the grille and mesh installed together
So my plan was to still paint the grille WRB - does anyone think I should paint it flat black instead? Would anyone be willing to photoshop the grille WRB so I can see what it might look like?
Thanks for checking in.
