As was mentioned, it is a direct Bolton, although GM only made them in Black, Cherry metallic and green/gray. So not sure how black grill will look on your white car but nothing a little paint won't fix. I've added many Impala parts over the years and a black grill/red bow tie is one of them.
4DoorSS, thanks for the response. I'm not sure how the black grille on the white Caprice will look either, but I think it *might* look awesome. Kinda like on my CVPI I'm about to sell (the old DD), it is white with the police package and no appearance pkg so it has the black police grille. Looks pretty cool I think. And since the SS grille is a bolt-on and completely replaces the chrome Caprice grille...maybe it will also look really cool? So I'm trying that first, will ofc have to post pics of it once I get it.
But then if it's not quite what I'm thinking or looks weird, then yep I will get it painted white and I think *that* will look super sweet no matter what.
However, if your car is a low option vehicle like mine was, adding things like power seats, power mirrors, two-light sentinel, auto-dim mirror, map lights, etc, etc will not have the harnesses in place. To do these type of mods will require some electrical work. There is so much you can do, you could be busy for years, but modding is what makes this fun and your car unique.
It's on my to-do list to make a new thread about the options on my car, as according to my cousin who has been into these B-bodies much longer than I (he has 2 atm, a DGGM 9C1 and a red wire-wheeled 9C1 that is I think 1 of 8), he told me after seeing my decoded VIN that my car is 1 of 162 out of the 94,600 Caprices made in '96. Something about it has the B4U pkg and blue interior but not the deluxe one...I will have to find out how/where he gets his figures as I like to nerd out on that stuff too.
But anyways yeah my car has power mirrors, but no power seat. Hmm...*that* might be cool if that's addable...then again this car is already fricken heavy enough, lol. It also does have the auto-dimming mirror, first car I've ever had that has it, that is a cool feature.
What's a two-light sentinel? And where would the map lights be? Overhead in the headliner? Unless you mean the switches on the rear view mirror, in that case I have those too.
In your other post, I linked you to some manuals that will give you lots of ideas....be careful and hold on to your wallet.
Hmm...I'm sure I must be missing something but I can't seem to find your links anywhere. ?
