    New grille on my 1992 Burburban 454BB

    About a month ago I decided to get a rig to tow my VR4 to the NG and to some tracks in the area.

    I got a 1992 Suburban 2500, 2wd with a 454 - great shape, no rust, 117k. I practically stole it for a little over a grand.

    I quickly finished all the basic maintenance and turned my attention towards the flaking chrome grille. I was looking for a 94-98 GMC conversion, but after a day of junkyard scouring I settled on a good condition 92 GMC grille for $50.

    Without further adieu, the pictures:

    BEFORE


    The junkyard grille was a little cracked and beat, but 5 hours of prep work and I had it ready for paint.


    Couple coat of clear and voila!

    thanks guys! It's gunna look good with a matching red VR4 behind it. I'm hoping to have 33" BFG all terrains and a header back exhaust by the time NG rolls around.
