Challenger Grill Trim

Ive been looking around, i have a 2010 SE black Dodge Challenger. I would love to put a red or yellow heritage hockey stick strip along the side, and change the chrome trim on my grill to red or yellow. Any thoughts about this? And also where might i be able to find the trim for the grill? This challenger in the picture has the trim on the grill im talking about. http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challenger_Blacktop6.jpg

Pretty sure that Challenger belongs to a forum member... so hopefully he'll see the thread and let you know.

I agree that it looks awesome!

It looks like it's just painted. It sounds stupid but the best way to paint those are to leave it on. just tape off and cover everything you don't want paint on.

To remove that grill trim, you need to jack the front of the car up, remove both front tires, release ABS brake connector, remove inner tire lining, undo all the fastens for the front fascia, undo bolts under the car, remove the front fascia, then pry the clips on that trim to release it, they are so tough and brittle you'll probably break a clip even if your careful, I tried while installing a new grill on my car and ended up leaving it on to paint it.

How do you access these tabs? Do you get to them from inside under the hood or right in front of the grill?
