I dont know if it saves me from tickets or not but I have had cops wave to me.
its mounted with double sided pads that you use to hang mirrors. Its been on for 9 months and hasnt budged.

if were talking about the grille, it looks great.. if were talking about the front plate, it seems out of place to me.. but to each his own.. good job nonetheless

What's the deal with the blue stripe? Does it mean you have family or are yourself in the force?

did u clear coat it or anything? how many coats did u do??
ALSO did you do only the top part or the whole outter part?

i repainted mine only the top part and used gloss clear coat *on accident* and now it has a glossy look to it, looks kinda wierd cuz the rest is the stock flat type look... owell

Looks great and enjoyable...I have always liked that grill better than the game grill. Might have to choose one up someday...
