Well i just got my ss grill and will be putting on soon with other mods waiting in the wing. My problem is im painting the grill summit white to match the body color but as for a color for the bowtie i want to paint it a color but not the norm that will look good instead of black or white. Any help will be appreciated.

At first, I would say white. But you don't want white, black, or gold, so I vote chrome. It will match the wheels.

I would say a silver color, or billet style color.. or since yours is white.. red is a popular color, along with painting your calipers red to match as well.. I've seen that in person and dug it!

Okay I also had this in mind, I would like to powdercoat the wheels a charcoal grey, red calipers, the center of the hood + grill + center of bumper ( like the z-71 avalanche silverados tahoes & suburbans ) a black or dark grey. Maybe flowing down the center if the roof. Paint the saab 9-7x rails I have summit white......

Yea I think it would... there was a photoshop thread on here, where someone photoshops your pic to your thinkings/liking.. I would search for that, submit you pic, and see what someone can photoshop for you to give you an idea..

Mind if I ask what you paid for that grille? Those are pretty tough to find.

So are you leaving the LT bumper? I always wondered how that would look. *tame my modding dreams*
