Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

So I took the truck by the car-wash to rinse it off. While I was washing it, i ran over the front grill and BAM a huge chunk of chrome peeled off the grille. I was so pissed. I wasnt that close with the high pressure and there was nothing on the grill that I could even see that could have caused it. Just my bad luck again I guess!!!!

Anyway it was a good excuse to put my white grill back on and put the black mesh in. I like the look with the stock one back on but I think the chrome looks good on white as well.



White with Black Mesh



sorry for the shotty pics, they are from my cell phone.

Re: Car Wash the other day= ruined chrome grille

yea dont pressure wash it at all if there are any rock chips in it i guess. The grille itself cheap plastic with a chrome film over it so i guess if you have any small chips, dirt can get under it and then lift the film off.
