    As much as I would hate to paint over a NOS grille I think on your car it may look nice without the red/orange. Maybe photoshop it first. If your car was completely original then I would leave it as is. Otherwise go for it.

    I'm leaving it red (orange?), being an NOS grille and when I REALLY thought about it and pictured it in my mind with silver, the car would look too plain.

    My car is an Aspen Sunrise, not an R/T but what the heck, it's far (really far) from stock original so having an R/T grille and spoiler (from a '76 R/T) is the way it's going to be. In case some didn't know, the 1/4 window louvers were part of the Sunrise package and are the same ones the car was born with.

    Just to add some perspective, I paid a whole $5 for the spoiler at a scrap yard in 1989. Thing that make you go DAMN, when I had the "incident" that shortened the car about a foot in 1989, a brand new grille assy from Dodge was a whopping $120, the fender end trim was less than $10 each and the hood trim was about $40, all brand new. Man, if a guy had only known........................LOL
