    Hello , my "winter projet" is having my front grill restored and the surround rechromed as well

    I'll post some pics of the evolution during the coming months

    I'm also looking for a better Buick trishield crest for the grill if you have one ....

    I probably like to paint it black like GS's keeping the silver grey in flat surround area .... what would be the correct grey color code ??? And is the black code "flat black" ??


    Thank you

    Keep us posted on the cost to rechrome the bar. I always thought about having mine redone

    The more i see , the more i like ! I'll probably go that way and mask it like that .

    Now what color for the gray ?
