New grill installed

Finally got my color matched grill installed. Painted the emblem to match and added plasti dip to the rams head. Now all I have to do is get the bumper and cover installed.

Took the emblem off, took it apart and color matched the shield and plasti-dipped the rams head. Thanks for the compliments. I can't wait to get the bumper and cover on it. Not a lot of free time between two boys and basketball games/practices.
