    My grille on my 81 was looking a lil rough around the edges,so I decided to play with the stock one for a lil while while waiting on my new billet grille to get here. I cut the braces out of each section so it gives it a lil different look and also made it easier to prep for paint .Then I painted the grille black and the inside of the bowtie blue to match the truck and break up all of that black.I also painted the headlight bezels and removed the bumper guards .I still have to pick up 2 more bumper bolts ,they only had 2 in stock at advance.Heres a before and after pic.
