Im looking at buying a black grille off ebay comes with the grille and both headlight bezels looks like its made by a company called autosdepo. Anyone else have any experience with this item as far as fitment and quality goes?
Also has anyone painted there windshield trim, wondering the best way to go about that?

Thanks, Jared

avoid any grills on ebay, alot of them are just cheap chinese crap. i bought a "billet" off there and it was 100% plastic and broke just being shipped. sent the pieces back and filed a claim through paypal to get my money back.

if you're going to paint it and your grilles chrome then make sure you sand it real well of its not gonna stick
i painted just the gray part of my grille flat black and it looks real good

GRILL GRILLE ford F350 F-350 92-96 truck grill black 95..7789 : eBay Motors (item 170452342559 end time Mar-06-10 16:23:40 PST)

for $35 bux


BEZELS http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php search for part numbers
57895L, and 57895R,

for $10 bux each,

disclaimer...these arent installed yet, but sitting on my workbench...
so I dont know about fit...but the finish is just black plastic ready for prime and paint.
Sweet, thanks for the links and numbers, i wonder how well the plastic will hold up if i installed it bare with no paint. i dont want it chipping and lookin like crap. but thats basically the same grille and bezels id like to put on, let me know how the fit is please, do you plan on installing them soon??

Clouse, looks good, if you painted the windshiled trim it would go together nicely i think, im not a fan of that trim it stands out so badly esp. on my truck being black and all

I wouldnt run that without painting it....its black, but not "finish" quality

currently waiting on smoked headlights, to match it all
I dont want to tear it all down until I have all the parts....
