    SS Scoop Grills

    I have an "Afterthoughts" auto chrome plastic scoop grill that is starting to fade. I see a lot of nicer ones out there and I have a billet grill that I would like
    to somewhat match. Does anyone know of a good source for SS hood scoop grills either polished chrome or Stainless?

    Thanks

    I didnt know there was anything made besides the $60 billet ones.
    I thought about trying just to pry mine off and paint it silver.

    It looks fine on your car, but mine has a billet grill that I want to match.

    Thanks Maro, That is exactly what I was looking for. Too bad they don't have a good picture showing the SS emblem, I have no idea what that looks like. Thanks again.... Tossing my cheap plastic chrome plated one....

    Never had any problems. Once in a while, I blow it out with my air compressor. Don't think I have any pics right now.

    There are 4 little tabs that hold it in the scoop. Take a small flat blade screwdriver and very carefully pull down and out on one side of the top of the grille. Then do the other side and it will fall out. I cleaned out the inside of the scoop as far as I could reach, then masked the area and painted the inside semi gloss black.

    OK I got the new grill with the SS emblem. I really like it except there is no way
    to mount it that I can figure out. It comes with two screws and two nuts but
    as you know, the stock one clips in, and so do the other replacements that I have seen. Whats up with this? Anyone buy one of these? How did you mount it?
    I'm sending it back because I don't want to punch a couple of holes in my scoop
    as is obviously required....

    Those are the directions that emblem pros gave me to0. Fasten it to the old
    grill. So I removed the old grill, Painted it red, and attached the new grill to it.
    I am not sure if I like the red or not, I will have to take it out driving and check it out. If not, I think I will paint it black, and do it over. I will post some pics.
