If you don't mind a highjack thats an old pic of Black Cherri. Here is her lates look.



Back on track thou when you have the lids finished don't just bondo the seam get the metal filler then bondo I did fiberglass filler then bondo and i have a few spots but not enought to redo the whole thing.

Thats the same advie I got from the shop, use metal filler. It's curing now - has a 12 hour drying time but will be good and strong. Also, I dont use bondo because of cracking problems I use urethane filler which has maintains some flexibility.

Today 07:33 AMBig D's 300CGlad somebody found a cheaper route. I've been looking for a welder that I can trust for the pass few weeks now and this thread is just what I needed. I'm near the lake, so there are boat shops galore around here. Thanks Tx Bandit. Today 07:33 AMBig D's 300CGlad somebody found a cheaper route.

Here is what the finished front end looks like with the mad-eyes:



Picked up a Grip grill to go with my Grip front end but not sure I am going to use it.
Went to Spring Fest 2010 and it seems like EVERY 300 had a Grip grill.
I think I am going to stick with my custom Bentley Continental grill and sell the Grip.
Or maybe keep them both and just alternate at the shows and keep the one that wins the awards. :saroll:

going to look way better once you get that grip fascia back on!


and yeah that is why i still have my mopar chrome mesh grill cause just about every other 300 has the grip now :pat:


but that is a good idea about alternating though! lol

That was a very good idea about the boat repair shops...that saved you $$$$

Im pretty sure it was a cake walk for them, I guarantee they have handled harder tasks than welding a straight line, lol.

how much did this cost you all in so far?
How much did what cost? The mad-eyes? The paint? Or the bumper, the bumper mod, the grill, the stainless mesh, the fogs, the halos, the custom badges, the washer nozzles delete? The front of the car, the back of the car, the interior, the engine compartment? LOL! I've saved a lot by doing as much of the work as I can as well as looking for bargains and help from members of DFWLX (can't say enough good things about that club!) As far as cost goes lets just say I added a rider to my insurance to cover the mods.

random Q....
did you get the whole hood repainted or just touched up?
I had the entire hood painted.
You can get just the eyelids blended in but you will still need to get the whole hood clear coated in order to have a seemless look.
