New post Look, up in the sky!! It's Obsessive Compulsive Man!!!
Ah, I made mention of this wackyness in my lip post, and a few of you have already heard the tale. But for the rest of you, here goes.

So, on my .:R the left air vent comes filled in from the factory. Observe.

(sorry for the crappy photos, all of these were taken with my camera phone while I was at work)

Image

So, the idea was to cut out this vent to match the other two which are open. Armed with an exacto knife and way too much time on my hands, I began the work.

Here you can see my progress after one hour. I'm really moving along!

Image

And now after two hours. Jeez, I'm really getting good at this.

Image

And finally, after two hours, 53 minutes victory was mine! Or so I thought. DA DA DA DUM!!!! :-|

Image

But, alas, I was wrong :cry:

You can see the problem in this photo. You see, I was trying to match this grille with the other two, but the right grille has a solid half/filled thing going on around the edge. And a wacky lone ranger spot in the middle. :-?

Image

So to work I went. This one only took me just under an hour. I'm like a professional by now! :mrgreen:

Image

But that's not all folks! There's more! :eek: Of course, the center vent has the same damn half fill thing going down on it as well. Obviously this is not going to get by Obsessive Compulsive Man!!! :mrgreen:

Image

Good thing I've got a lot of free time at work!

Image

And, of course, you have to REMOVE THE ENTIRE FRONT FASCIA to reinstall the center section.

But in the end, the villagers rejoiced, their town had been saved, the mayors daughters honor restored, and the front of my car was fashionably uniform. All was right with the world, and Obsessive Compulsive Man could drift off to a restless sleep. Until next time.... :thumbsup:

Your stories are so funny. I am going to move this and the other one to the Technical/DIY section and make some DIY's for them.

That took so long! I can't imagine sitting there and doing that.

Looks good again. Just a thought, maybe where you can see the silver behind the grills, you could break out the old black rattle can and spray them so it is just smooth looking behind them. Just a thought!

Eh, I kinda like being to see the silver bits, at least you know it's a functional grille. At first I wasn't sure if I was crazy about it, but now I'm digging on it.
