Dino coupe 2000 front grill finish

Post by bhiggins2 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 8:12 pm

My 1967 Dino coupe front grill is painted black. It is pitted and needs refinishing. I've seen photos of both black and chrome finishes. Is either one correct for the model, or does it vary by body color? My car is dark red [now], original color may have been lilac, then silver. Thanks, Ben.

I have never seen a 2.0 grill with any paint on and I have seen a great many cars.

That photo looks like it is all shiny metal, inside and out. If you have pitting in the pot metal surface, can it even be re-polished?

Dinoparts won't have it, but you can buy such spray-on dirt in dedicated SUV stores :lol:
