Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

Ouch, wouldn't expect that to happen even with a pressure washer! Did you get the grille from eBay or is it the Mopar/Jeep one? Could see an aftermarket grille doing that but not an original - if it was a Mopar/Jeep part I'd take it back to get a replacement as that's poor...

Although I do like the color-coded grille a lot!

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

It was from the factory. I tried taking it back but they said they only warranty parts for 1 year and the fact that i cut the inner part up for the mesh grill wouldn't really go over well. I really didnt expect it from a factory part as well. It was very frustrating.

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

Damn, that sucks man. I had a chrome grille for mine and although it pitted really easy I never had any issues like that even with the pressure washer...

At least you have a spare though!

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

I purchased the mesh at Lowes. Its a sheet of lathe (i think thats what it is called) that only was $4. I primed, painted and cleared it and put it on!

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

Why don't you swap out the black mesh with chrome mesh? That way you have both chrome, with the white I think the white grille's better but if you miss a little of the chrome you could always re-mesh

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

True. After having it on there for a week or so now, I really like the look of the white better. I want to have the side moldings painted white as well as the lower moldings below the doors and the front bumper.
