Ok, so out of curiosity...
You recently bought a $25,000-$30,000+ car, right? Exactly how many of you would have no problem installing an unpainted grill on your car and just driving around like that? We're talking about a grill that's NOT prepared at all--and most likely a powdery grey or charcoal-like primer color? Don't forget that when RAW FIBERGLASS is exposed to everyday road conditions, it'll get dinged and pockmarked from small pebbles, dirt, road salts, etc.

Here are some unpainted grills that should help you understand what you could put on your brand new car....

I ran w/o a grille for several months while ARK was replacing my original I got from them with a new better fitting mold. So if it was temporary, sure...why not. But eventually I would have to get it painted or it would drive me nuts.

I'm guessing someone ordered an unpainted grill from you and installed it as is. That person is now complaining that it isn't holding up?

why stop at grill, why not a unpainted bumper...
I mean, its only temporary ;)

I'm sure every civic owner rocking the full unpainted body kit was thinking the same thing. :D

ugh reminds me of those civics with half primered half raw fiberglass jobs while sporting the red fenders on a green car.

But why the question though? personally I wouldn't... I mean if you already put down the money for a part, why not go spend few more bucks to complete it instead of leaving it half ass....
