Looks great!

My plastic grille shell was a P.I.T.A too. I actually stabbed my self in the finger with a screw driver trying to get the darn thing off.

It will last a while! Do the bottom and don't worry about it not lasting!!! It will.

haha... the last piece down there was auto zone mesh, lost it while running down highway 231 ~65mph...

Oh... I did another thing... I hated how the turn signal sockets turned brown, so I hit them white white satin paint and they look like brand new...

I'm inbetween, maybe if the whole grill was the same mesh I would look ok but I don't think it looks too good being two different meshes.

I think billet just looks to plain IMO. I've always wondered how it would look with the stock emblem in the middle.

Buy one and paint it yourself if you can't find one, as long as you prep it good you'll never be able to tell the difference.

I like your grill with the gutter guard, but the billet grill looks like poo.

IMO it would look good on the valance too, it looks kinda weird with just a big hole there with nothing in it.
