A different take on the STX grill?

well Scott stopped over at my house last night with a little present... a purdy STX insert
I dont have many pictures yet but heres a couple cell pics at work



I think it looks tons better but im torn on painting the surround. I kinda like the chrome surround.

I say paint the grill surround and take the lights out from behind the grill, it really takes away from the clean look of the STX Grill.

Personally I don't like that grille but having the lights behind it I definately think it looks better than the one in your avatar.

I like the chrome, it's different.

Here's what it would look like color-matched:
