Thanks for your honesty, Ratso. I'm definitely interested in a nicer option, even if it turns out to be more expensive. As was pointed out in a thread about a year ago, a difficulty in sprucing up the Pilot grill with just a little chrome is that it will just look like a CRV grille. Look forward to what you come up with, ratso.Ratso said:This mod isn't turning out as nice as I would like. I sent a set to drm1111 (hesitantly) and he agreed that the design is not quite up to snuff. I am meeting with a metal fab shop on Tuesday to discuss a real metal application for the horizontal grill bars like these.
