    noob'e and some questions???

    Whats up all, noob here. Im active on several local forums and SyTy.net, was refered here by some SyTyer's....Just wanted to say what up......

    My first question for the board is this...............

    Ive got a 92 GmC Typhhon, White on grey, and im looking for some cosmetic changes, nothing drastic, just subtle changes....

    It currently sits slammed on 17x12 Zr1's on the rear and 17x10's on the front and the paint and cladding is clean (7 outa 10)...Now, im not a big fan of the "altezza" taillights so im leaving that alone, but I am however wanting to do something with the front grill...Ive done mad research on whats available for the Sy's and Ty's, but nothing is catchy, just same ol sheeit...SO, im was looking at swapping my front grill assembly from the one piece to a earlier 3 piece grill...I like the different billet setups you can get and I just like the way it looks. How hard would it be to convert back to the 3 piece as far as mounts, trim pieces, grill and bezel??? Considering the fronts of the things havent drasticly changed with-in that span of design, im assuming it wouldnt be difficult...

    Im looking for tips/tricks/suggestions/pics and advice on the topic


    Thanks in advance

    the older trucks with the 3 piece grille have a different rad support.

    So, could it be worked??? If the support is different, im assuming just the mounts for the lights would be off, and of coarse mounts for the grill.....Has anyone done this yet??? if so, can I get some pics........

    Yeah it could be done but most do the opposite of what you want plus on a typhoon that 3 piece is gonna look funny because it won't dip down where the bumper dips and you will have an ugly gap to worry about.

    I was actually looking at that problem already, and I think the trim piece that is there could be worked to fit the grill with no gaps......

    Any sites that would have a decent grill replacement for the Typhoon, I came up with nothing and thats why I was wanting to go the 3 piece route........
