Cool E&G Stainless Grille

The Couture - the way it was supposed to be.
(Like the pics on Chrysler's web site)

I've been looking at these for sometime, but I'm still not too sure if I like them or not. One of the guys in our group just got the E&G grill that has the slats. I think I like this one better though. It looks real good on your car

I'm like you, been staring at these for some time. One issue I've heard with the E&G grills is poor fitment. Sooner, any issues with your's?

Talking Re: E&G Stainless Grille

Thanks guys!
I got mine from Maggie at Race&Street.com.
I told Maggie that Cruiser Motor Sports had just lowered the price. So, she matched it.

No real big fitment problems.
1. Just be sure that as you allign and tie the lower chrome mesh, you look to see that the trim pieces holes match up with the soild triangles of plastic on the OEM plastic mesh.
2. Seemed like the passenger side chrome edge wanted to stick out a little (proper curvature issue); so, I did a little gentle bending over my knee.
3. Even with the shims supplied, the grill sits a little back from the edge of the hood. But, not nearly as bad a soonercruiser's PTeazer Roadstart grill.
(When I have more time, I may loosen the top bolts at the shim and try to pull the curvature out a little.

***But, as you can see from the following photo, it really does look great all together!

I'm one of the many that's been eyeing that too but haven't pulled the trigger. Looks nice! I still am interested in seeing the Q-Style Grille though.

Thanks for the write-up/feedback!

Here's the other version of the E&G grill that one of our members just got. This one reminds me too much of the cold air return vents in my house. Prefer the mesh one much better
