Default Argent Bar Grille Insert for 03

Hey does anyone have one of these lying around that they would want to sell. Or, maybe point me in the right direction of somewhere on the net that would have one cheap. I just want the grille, not the grille and surround. Mine is gray (I assume from the sun) and I would like to replace it. I have had the surround pulled off and tried removing the grille but have been unsuccessful two times.

Most people will jsut respray the grille with some spray paint. Cheaper. Other than that, check ebay and junkyards.

I've got one. It was once grey but was painted a Satin Black using Krylon Fusion by me. Was sanded, primed, sanded, tack clothed, then on went the color. Here's a pic:





Really don't know what the going rate are for these.....Make offer.



Seperating the inner grille from the grille shell is a little difficult. But with patience and with forceably gentle work with small screw drivers and pliers, it can be done. I've done it like 5 or 6 times now I wanna say.

So I finally got around to pulling my grille apart. But, the only other question I have is what grit sandpaper should I be using. What do I need to use for primary sanding and what to use after priming?
