I basically got rid of the top and middle chrome grilles and replaced them with the cooper s body color grilles since they look a lot better. I then took out the lower grille and spray painted it a flat black with a couple of satin clear coats.

Been through some changes eh?

The black S grill is an interesting idea. I never thought of that. Is that flat black? I don't really like the Aero grill but the stock grill is just so... stock.

Nice pics.

yeah, that one liked to change looks every couple of weeks, wether it be decals, lights, wheels, whatever, it just like to change

I painted it with a bumper paint, which is kinda like a very smooth undercoating, it has some rubber in it. so it holds up real well to stone chips and doesnt flake.

in contrast, i'll be doing my new S chrome in a textured undercoating. i already have the gascap done, it looks kinda like hammered paint, but all one solid color.

i'll post pics of it all when i'm done

This is an s-grill (used to be red) painted flat black and satin coats...

I was one of the first in the US to black out my grill (rick copied me :p ), and now it seems to be HUGE over on NAM.

I'm now thinking about doing my chrome bits body color. I want a carbon fiber scoop and I think that with a black grill would be too much black. I'll have to hunt down some pics and see if anyone already has this done on a DS/B.

Looks great with the red

I wish I could brush my chrome, but a lot of it is plastic.

you can always get the middle slats wrapped in carbon fiber to match the scoop
