My Grill Work.... I give myself a B+






final pic soon still have 2 - 3 more coats and some sanding before remount... LOL... let me know what you think... Might try again cut the wire a tad bit too short in some areas.... easier than i thought.. hardest part is removing all that plastic and crap!

Oh yeah i also sanded the chrome crap with 3 different grits.. 80 160 and 220 i think... i have 400 that i'll use between sanding paint. I am using flat black. The spray can sucks ***

I like it, good job. I think you're selling yourself short. Unless there are some really bad spots, I'd say B+ at the very least.

the paint turned out fine.. i just cut the grill short in a few area's not noticeable far away but looking close you can see them. primarily the center grill.

looks pretty good, roll that thing outside and take a pic of the whole truck so we can get a better idea :thumbsup:

Love it. I want the same thing without painting the chrome. I wish Active Tuning would make grilles for our trucks like they do for the Altimas and others.

Looks awesome! I did mine with some stainless steel expanded metal. I really like the all black tho. Maybe I'll paint mine.

I liked how it looked with the brushed chrome look also.


Here is a pic link of the Titan Guy i followed to do this.

looks good by itself but a little out of place on the truck imo, need more stuff matching it imo

I agree... I might color match it to see also.. Might just order a new one from courtseyparts and try again.

I like it! I want to do something similar to my truck since its pretty much the same color. I got the chrome bumpers mirrors and door handles though. I want to color match all of them. I am wanting to go the route of a black billet grill that goes from headlight to headlight but no one makes one for the 2010 yet so may be a one off and pricey. Really wanna do the projector headlight conversion but may just paint the inside of the headlight instead (black out the headlight). The lower valence would get gloss black paint along with gloss black nerf bars and roof rack. Still deciding on the rims. I like the factory 18's so may gloss black them too.
