Have a look at links below. This will help determine if this is something you can do on your own. If this mod appears a bit daunting do as Larry suggests and find a good indy in your area. Can also save some $$ ordering a piece of mesh from [url]http://www.customcargrills.com[/url and let your indy cut to shape http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/9...91-diys-2.html STG has suggested while FBC off, clean and tape surrounding areas, and lightly spray the three radiators black. More here: https://rennlist.com/forums/991/842093-g-g-4.html (posts 76,79,81,84,85,86&89). T

Keep in mind, Rennline's are bend/molded around the edges for strength. Powder coated after too. If you bend them after, risk chipping off finish. Worth the extra $$ to have them all set to go trust me.

Center radiators are already painted black. Side ones are silver. Like Tony mentioned, nice to paint them so they look stealth and don't shine through mesh.

thats a good idea im sure they can figure it out. if i can get the right price for the actual labor i wont mind going to rennline, would cut down on the time in a big way im sure.

do they just spray paint the radiators? think my center is definitely silver too

Yes spray paint. A very light dusting.

I bought my center radiator after the fact and came black as an OEM part. Maybe the ones that come on the car as part of the build are silver? Could be.

As asked but unanswered on this and other similar threads, ONCE YOU HAVE INSTALLED THE RENNLIST MESH, HOW DO YOU CLEAN THE DEBRIS THAT HAVE BYPASSED THE MESH AND COLLECTED IN THE RADIATORS? IS THE ONLY ROUTE REMOVING THE FRONT BUMPER? AS I HAVE MENTIONED IN ANOTHER THREAD, I HAVE NO MESH. I USE MY CRAFTSMAN VACUUM AND MY MASTER BLASTER WHILE I AM DRYING THE CAR TO REMOVE DEBRIS. I DO NOT BELIEVE EITHER WOULD BE EFFECTIVE WITH THE MESH IN PLACE. ANY KIND, UNOFFENSIVE SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATED.
