I did the conversion on this grille about 6-7 years ago and the other day I get text asking if I can fix it. So 16 hours later, it’s better. The hit stretched the aluminum and you can’t shrink it back to original like you can metal. This is good as it’s gonna get.

I’m not, just fixed it for my buddy. Someone back into his car and the grille along with his fiberglass bumper got damaged.

I used a metallic silver when I did my fiberglass bumpers. They looked pretty good.

yep that's correct. i have a wrap guy i work with on big rigs and coaches and looks good and no kind of seams etc. but again every shape is different so i'm thinking of just trying one and see how it looks. if not happy peel and paint like you said. also looks like you got a good build going to happen good luck with it.
