Default SLP Grille

Hi Everyone, this is my first post on the forums. Im having a very difficult time finding an SLP grille for my monte. It's like they never existed I've checked everywhere I can think of but nothing is turning up. If anyone can help me locate one that would be awesome or if anyone here is selling one let me know!

about a month ago I saw some one had one on Facebook on a Monte Carlo site. I am sure it is gone by now but it might be something to check on.
The are rare now when they were fairly common they were reasonable also. Good luck.

Thanks man, yeah it seems like even in 2012/13 they were pretty easy to find, now they're nowhere haha. Good idea about the Facebook group, I'll look into that.

You need to be vigilant, they rarely show up for sale. The grille has been brought up a few times in the last couple of months and it is always the same, none to be had. Looked into having some 3D printed and the cost per item was seemingly astronomical. $20,000 for a mold.

yeah I've seen some of the other posts, including yours. Btw I love your car man! Watched all your YouTube videos about it and showed other people too. Your car mods look wise are about exactly what i want my car to look like. Do you mind telling me about the sparco seats and your custom louvers? Like how you got them to fit and how you got the louvers made?

That's because they've been discontinued, so the only thing you can buy is leftover stock or someone selling used.

I have a new unused SLP grille I bought a few years back for my 2003 but never installed it. It has the LSX badge and a red SS badge I bought separately. Not sure if I want to use it on my Dale Jr. as that would take away from the collectibility I think. What are they going for now? I might list it on eBay.

Will do. Would rather sell it to someone on here but don't want to give it away either, just looking to get a fair market value price.

Fair market price, what ever happened to the Monte Carlo forum buddy deals.

I think a fair price is in the $100 range...
