also, if anyone knows where to get the chrome trident emblem that is placed on the C pillar of the newer models. I assume those I can get at any dealer, the mesh grille is a different story. I think the grille size is larger in the newer models so the std ones won't fit my 02
I have a 2003 Coupe GT, In the attached photos you can see the car with the original grill. The dealer replaced the grill under warranty ( bad chrome ) and only had the wire mesh grill in stock ( see close up photo ). The chrome trident emblem was from the parts department. I had the dealer stick them on. I think they fill the empty space on the C pillars nicely.
If you want the full chrome grille and chrome surround, ala 02\03 vintage package, you're looking at about $2200-2400 if I remember right. (We had to replace one for someone that had the Trident stolen by vandals, but it was a while ago)
Otherwise you can DIY with chrome mesh, or there are a couple of companies around that will chrome plate the current plastic you've got. The old company I used to work with on that has folded, but I've got a couple possibilities. Last I heard they were running 250-350 to chrome a plastic grille. (Almost works like a powdercoat)
The C-Pillar tridents come in two flavors - standard full silver, and the sport gt style with red bars. I think they run in the $20 neighborhood, and my parts department should have some in stock if you want to order some.
