I was looking at pic's of that LS they made to race with I think had over 400 hp the other day and had a question.. What year is it? I thought it was like an 04, but that grill was different wasn't it? The inner was like a lt gray insted of black wasn't it???? Maybe there is hope for me to finaly have some kind of grill for my LS.....

Has anyone had any dealings w/that chrome paint stuff? I was thinking of trying to find a place that does that chrome paint and paint the inner part of my grill.. What do you think?????

The only thing I would like that would differ would be a 5 speed manual instead of the 4 speed auto. :steering:

Nothing special

It has either been painted or out of an LSE - grill color matches car, but not this one.

Not an LSE because that grill has inside chrome and outside color of the car, where as LS has inside black and outside chrome.
