OK, so I got the T-Rex Billet Grille

here she is before


During


After




I kind of liked the Krom and its style and hated the SL grille, not any more on both accounts. I love this look. I also went looking for the stealth chrome bulbs I have seen before and no luck for now. I was also going to pull out the headlight buckets and separate the lens from the bucket and pop out the little amber lens and add an amber 194 instead so my lights looked JDM. I got most of the bucket out and could not find a few bolts. I had the wheel wells out, most of the lower fascia and clips galore. No dice! I will have to look at the manual and try again later.



Keep modding those cubes :yes:

Bye All

That is sweet C! I am jealous. I too would like a crack at the stocker you have. I want to customize my ugly grill, and would like a stock in there while the transformation takes place...

I PM'd her and no response. :( :no: Maybe 550 posts and you're out. or She is really a CIA agent and has to go deep cover or She is in the Witness Protection Program and had to relocate???? Somebody start a poll with some imaginative options and we'll decide by vote what happened. :yes:

Christine,

Say what? You’re leaving, why? How can the one Cube owner that I know who also has a Titan leave? I hope this is not true!

I really like the new look especially the upper section between the headlights.

OK so if I have truly bad news like cancer or something you all will be there like this for me right :p

I am good all, just was exploring other options. Had I known :-\

You all are great! 8)

SO I ordered the 7507 bulbs from Stealthauto to get rid of the egg yokes, now to figure out how to get the darn headlight bucket out to remove the amber lens.

You wanted to see this too:



There are 4 clips at the bottom that you have to feel for, once you pop them the grille comes right out.

I don't know what I am going to do with the stocker grille.

Christine,

Whats behind this grill to hold it in place? Or is this just poped in the frame behind it?

Look at the above post where the grille is missing. You will see 2 posts in the middle. Those have 2 pop clips, then at the bottom the 4 slots.

That is it, nothing to complicated at all. I was amazed. Adding the new grill you add to compression fittings and 2 screws, add the pop clips back and you are done.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, boy was I wrong!

I got an email from T-Rex (A real email not some autoreply) and they are going to use my Cube pics on their site and for the product image, how cool is that? 8)

Wow, congratulations, that is nice to be able to look at an advertisement and say hey That’s My Car! ;D

I’m guessing you were one of the first to install that grill.

In the box was a slip of paper asking for you to submit pictures of your car, so I did. I might not be the first to install but maybe the first or near it to submit to their request.

I was taking pictures for NCL so sending to them was a no brainer. :D
