Little Things

Though I'd clean up the front end little. Notice on a lot of picts how connection to radiator on left front were silver steel and stood out. small paint brush and little black paint made a big improvement. j

Good job! That's right, I never liked how you can see the metal behind the grille. Was it hard to take off the grille and bumper?

I don't think he's active on the forum, might not even have his Patriot anymore. The bits of metal back there never bothered me that much...reminds me that there's a machine that needs maintenance under there, ya know? But, if you really wanna do it, you would need a heat resistant paint such as is used for engine and exhaust accents, otherwise it'll peel off with just a few hours of engine use.
