Black billet grilles installed

Probably common practice for the 10-14's by now but I still love the way these grilles look. I moved the fog lights inward with my own bracket and made the tinted covers for the lower parts of the bumper to match the headlight covers. I didn't really like that you could see the honeycomb through the lower grille so I removed the lower, masked off the area behind it and plasti-dipped it before attaching the billet grille. Maybe a little overkill but I like it

Aaaand after the install, realized that I needed to tint the sidemarker lights to match.

love the fogs behind the grill like that. Is that the way the grill is or did you have to do that yourself?

The fog lights actually mount in a bracket behind the grille. I could have left them in the stock position but I just flipped them over and used two of the three existing mounting holes and a bracket to secure them together.

I'm not sure how different the 10-12's are from the 13-14's but I bet the mounting would be very similar.

Can you elaborate on how you did the side portions. I have the CDC grille and trying to figure what I am going to do with the lower grille and sides now.

Sorry man. I'm not sure what you mean by "side portions"? Do you have pics of yours?

Here is the section on your I was referring to. I would do flat when I do it but just wondered how you did this so not the ribbed look like stock.

Looks good man! Love mine too. I figured it would be a common look, but so far I havent seen anybody else around my area with them, so I feel special still : )

So, the honeycomb lower grille is that noticeable behind the layover? I've got the same grille as you just haven't installed it yet and I'm wondering what to do about the lower.

I looked at customer pics on the American Muscle site before I bought mine and you can seed the honeycomb behind it. The lower is made top attach to the existing so you'll have to get a little creative. I've seen some people cut the honeycomb part out of the stock grille and use that to attach the new one.

Yeah I was planning on cutting out everything I didn't need to attach it and only leaving just enough. Can you explain what you did?

I actually just made some brackets, painted them black and used existing bumper holes to attach the mounting hardware.
