Default shaved grille

One good thing about being in a body shop is parts. I got a grille shell from a 2013. I was thinking about shaving the emblem and filling the hole for it. I did this on a tahoe grille I had.

Anyone done this? Ill have to melt some of it where its flared out around the emblem. I need a grille shell any way. might as well make it a one off.


Also scored a radiator support with just a headlight tab broken off.

Ill try to post a "how to" if any of you guys would like to try it.

Done.............. took me about 15 mins. Its not what I pictured in my head. I was going to melt the corners flat. Not going to happened. I may move my R/T emblem to the center.



It had been painted 3 times at the factory. someone was having a bad day.

I think the center looks like a STOP sign. I was worried about that. It may be trash can material.

I think it's fine. Have you thought of using a custom emblem? There are plenty of people out there making them.

I have a chrome grill, bumpers and door handles they make me want to hurl. As soon as I get a little money together I'm going to try to get them painted to match the truck (if it doesn't cost me an arm and leg)

Yeah that don't look too hot. Sorry. Must be the new 2013 grill, because the earlier 4th gen looks better
