Default Please help find chrome trim for grill opening

Hi, has anybody seen chrome trim for sale that outlines the grill opening on a S197. If you take a look at the Parnelli Saleen S302 you will see what i'm looking for. It gives it a nice vintage look. Thank for your help, Tony

fkn gt - I used door edge trim to outling the edge of the black portion of the grill. It takes a little patience but you can lift up the edge of the grill and push on the door edge (chrome) guard all the way around. Just a thought, looks good on my 09 GT.

Got any pics of this? Theres a user, Digitalcos I think his name is, that has done this, sort of a V6 version of the Bullitt and it looks awesome. Chrome trim you can find at Autozone.

There were a few cars I remember seeing with the chrome door trim on the grille before I did it. I know odiaz had it well before I did.
If you can find the Saleen PJ chrome, you'll be paying hundreds for it, and according to Saleen, the rear deck chrome is only compatible with that rear faschia. I spent less than $25 for both the grille and the rear deck.

WOW! Thanks for the help and the great pics. Is this run of the mill u-grove door trim? How do you attach it to the rear?

Yep. The grille trim is just the run-of-the-mill U-groove stuff. It's a bit easier to install with the grille removed, but certainly not necessary.

The rear deck chrome is different. I talked about it in a couple recent threads:

That's why I'm also going to be going with the taillight bezels or painting.

If you're considering trying it, lemme give you some tips. Definitely go with the 1/8th inch, rather than the quarter inch. The wider stuff doesn't take the compound curves as well, and cut the chrome to allow a gap at the seam where the bumper meets the fender, looks much more OEM that way.
