As some of you know, there is a MAJOR local show on Saturday that I am scheduled to participate in. So I decided to play around with some paint that I had left over and painted a spare grill body color. I decided to "black out" the word Buick to set it apart. Now I don't know what to do. Which grill should I compete with? Keep in mind that for the judging, the hood will be open, but will be closed after judging (1pm) until after the concert (11 PM).


So, without further adieu, here is the question in pictorial form for those of us that are visually perverted:p

Stock...... we all know what it looks like.



Both grills side by side



Close up (to help in the decision process)



The "new" grill



Yuck! Bad lighting



Better lighting.....



and the close up of the completed project




So, what should I do? Keep the stock grill, or show it with the painted grill, or "Crovo" the fins?

At least tomorrow will be spent buffing, polishing, waxing, and cleaning.... God I hate showing daily drivers;)

I agree with Jay. If you do use the body color one black out the "background" again. Also, it looks like your license plate bracket hardware is kinda brown. I know you love details...

how was the show?
The show went pretty good. Missed you though.......

Decided on the stock grill with body colored letters..





Was parked next to a guy named Adam (forgot his screen name:eek:. I detailed his car too


He said that he is NEVER going to another one of these because my wagon was getting more looks and comments than his SS


From an advertising standpoint, it was a bust. Rained for 3 days so the fairgrounds were "slushy" so it was moved to an abandoned parking lot
. Instead of having 35,000 people walk by, I had, maybe, 200.

Anyway, still had fun. Here are a couple more pics....




My wifey and daughter:
