Re: Paint-matched Grille & Tow-Hook Install
I unfortunatly hit a deer (or the deer hit me!) which broke my front grille, scratched the hood, broke the right headlight housing, and broke my front fender. $5500 damage. Deer was dead!!!
So I told the body shop I wanted the SRT 8 grille. It does not fit the Overland. So I told him to paint the grille. He says you can't paint chromed plastic... the paint basically melts it away. They have outlawed oil based paints in Canada now, so its a water based paint they now use. So the only grille that would meet my requirements and fit was the Altitude black grille with chrome mesh. He had to paint it brilliant black cause it only came in the different black. I got the black tailgate trim coming from an Altitude to replace my Overland's chrome strip. The Altitude grille painted my colour was cheaper than the chrome one. Chrome was over $800 from Chrysler. There was no cost to me.
