Looks killer. Did you ever look into the Monte Carlo bezels you were talking about?

You could also probably just use the existing bezels as templates for some new polished aluminum ones, then use a good strong double sided tape or even hook and loop on the back side to attach them. Machine shop should should be able to whip you some up fast and cheap since they're flat and fairly simple.

I literally use them for everything. No more stripped holes anywhere on my van!

I did, I looked at them and I am hoping to find some this weekend at the swap because I'll see about getting some way to attach them. Right now I want to get this grille cleaned up and put together so I can try and get down to where the van is stored on Sunday to mount it up.

What brand do you use? I've seen all sorts from eBay and Amazon, but would rather buy a quality setup if I can find one.

Good luck, hope you find some.

Cleaned it up a bit more and got it put together. It will need a bit of work but I hope to have it installed for Sunday.

Today I ditched my old clogged cat, single pipe & crappy muffler for true duals w/ 18" Magnaflow glasspacks.
