I had my chrome grill plasti-dipped by the previous owner. I want to re-do it and leave the center chrome piece exposed. I was just playing around today and actually could not find how to detach and then disassemble all of the grill.

Can someone either point me in the right direction or give me a heads up as to how to go about this.

Drop the front bumper shell. Everything is easily accessible from behind. I can remove the front bumper in about 20 minutes, so it's not that hard.

not a fan of just the center chrome piece..... the chrome exterior and black middle strip doesnt look half bad, so i would either do that or just keep it all black. but hey, it's your car.

You have to excuse the Toyota plate surround. That's where i bought her, some idiot traded this beauty in for a Solara. It had 50,000 on it, and it was immaculate. I paid 10,000. All I gotta say is " Suckaaaa, enjoy that Solara, and thanks for my nocturne vert " Lol.

it looks green in this pic, but if that green was an option, i might consider trade for it.:lol:
Yeah, that's what i like about the nocturne blue. It changes with the daylight, and looks pitch black at night. I see a few 9-3's around my neighborhood but no nocturne ones. It's rare, and it's sharp. But that green would be cool.

It almost looks like a photoshopped '03-'07 bumper top half, with an '08-'11 lower half grafted onto it. But it does look cool.
correct ^, but real bumper. search "08 bumper on a 03 9-3", there was a whole thread on it. that is where the pictures are from

edit: that won't pop up in the search function on here, so i googled it for you. here is the thread I'm talking about....
