Decided to take the grill off today. I noticed that a few of the ribs had a split at the centre so I filled the backs with Tiger Seal to stop them getting any worse. While I had it on the bench I Plasticoted the ribs as wasn’t a fan of all the chrome.

First things first. Sorry about the spelling and will never do such a thing again. Never thought about proofreading a forum post . Yes on the colour but it’s an Executive GT that had lots of chrome on the front. Plus the Trident just blended in. Now it stands out more. Before picture.

All the S came with chrome grille. 4.2 had black like yours is now and gts had the concave grille. I liked mine being chrome but as it was in a mess I picked up a gts version for less than the s version.

I looked out for a gts but only new ones at huge cost. Still looking for a used one as I prefer the concave look.

I'll be selling mine eventually... but I doubt you'd want it as I repaired it, only to find that my repairs didn't withstand :( I have resolved to purchasing a new one... eventually.
