Going to paint the whole grill (except for the plastic chrome) body color later on

Work in progress... got to get some more paint.

were can I get some in a can that will match?? Going to do the exterior trim (shopping cart bumper)also

Plus I going to order some new California black/yellow plates as well.

We have a place locally (car quest) that can put your colour code into paint cans and spray cans. It's more than your average can but at least it matches.

Yeah I have one of them close by.

I did the v6 you just did not see it in the photo because of the angle


also Photoshopped image of what it will look like I used flash and yes it would actually look that bright since the newer ones will be reflective.

You own the license plate. I would imagine as long as the police can read the state and plate number, there shouldn't be a problem.

The op plans on ordering a special license plate he said so he wont be painting his.

But that is interesting if you can paint one if you want to.

I know around here they have the scanners on the trunks the runs the plate of all cars around the police car as he is driving. I wonder if paint would interfere with that or if its legal to do anything to your plates.

License plate's belong to the state of origin. Just b/c you paid for it doesn't mean you own it. Even repainting a license plate the same way/color is illegal. Very unlikely an office would realize or even say anything but, it is illegal.

To OP: Paint the plastic hood latch cover (in between crossmember and and grill). I did this a while back along with painting the crossmember (upper), braces, etc.

Also I would take a look at the lower radiator support. A very common place for rust problems. Save yourself the headaches in the future and take a wire brush and some rustoleum paint to it.

Yes the plates are custom order from the state fairly cheap and 100% legal to use and register. They are available to any car year.


also it's only $50 for a custom plate and custom tag#


Choices are yellow/black Black/yellow Blue/Yellow

custom or random tag # upto 7 digits.
