I think you did a great job of setting yourself apart from all the other 'Bu's on the road. Looks good and just remember the mistakes you make as far as paint and perfect lines, most don't notice except you. It's kind of a good don't say anything and no one will notice type deal. Good job!

Anybody else have a better way please let us know!
I have tried this and can't seem to get anything up under the bowtie without damaging the chrome. Any suggestions?

I have a iphone and changed the screen a few times. The screen came with this really small skinny screwdriver. I used that.

Go to a store that sells tools and they should have one.

How is the white holding up with driving and road debree? I think I want to do this. I really like the white upper and lower grilles compared to the LTZ silver uppers and black lowers..

Actually it's holding up pretty good besides the little nic on the Bowtie. But I think this was because I was following behind one of them oversized loads on the freeway carrying a bulldozer thingy. Little rocks started to fall off and hit my car. So I think that's what it's from. But other than that the grilles are great. I think you should do it. It's diff from all the other malibus I seen. And people tell me that all the time!
