As some of you know. I'm a terrible driver. I rear ended my dads giant 4x4 Chevy on vacation last year in PCB '12. Well its February 2013 and after much duck tape, zip ties, and embarrassment with friends and family, I got her fixed with all my extra saved money.

The process started last week and has ended today. My wallet is very light yet I'm a happy man. This is all aftermarket parts except the rock guard as I call it and the radiator cover. The driver headlight also is aftermarket. If you want a smoked headlight look get them. If not get oem for the chrome. Here are my pictures in mostly order from accident to product.

The paint job is a 2010 (I think) patriot boss that sold for auction with a matching 1969 at Barrett Jackson. There is only one of one of these cars and mine is a clone. The paint cost $1,000 the first time and about her $250 for my body guy to fix the first guys mistakes and that sexy pin stripe. A few shots of the rear and sides too. Next step is the fog light wire and a boss lower valence.

I think the grill surround needs to be black, makes it more sinister.

I got the shop to paint it white. So that way if I wanted I can dip it later. I like the California special look. Patriot also had it color matched.

So can I post in the GT and boss section now without getting flack?

I'm glad y'all like it. I'm too scared to even touch right now. That black is just like a mirror.

Looking good! If I can ever find a cheap GT front end, I would do that in a heart beat. I agree with some other posts though, I would plasti dip the black surround...

In a matter of fact, that's on my list to do this Spring!

My issue is the body-color surround screams V6. All the nicer looking GTs I've seen have a black surround of some kind. I kinda wish I had that option available for my '13 to have the front grill area black from side to side, but I don't.

The GT/ CS and boss are body color my boy. Plus the patriot is body colored.

Also American muscle sells that piece you're talking of now. MMD puts it out.

I had to go look and I'm not quite sure it works with the '13+ bumper profile...

Yeah it looks like a cheesy bug deflector. You could dip it but it looking a piece of the hood does throw it off
