I was hoping someone in the paint/body world could help me with a problem. I have to have my grill and driverside headlight replaced, as some jerk-off hit my dime. It's a 2000 ext.cab. I took it to the body shop and they said that they could get me a paintable grill. So i ask to get it color matched to my truck they say no problem. The dude just calls me and says they can't get the "paintable" grill to fit(?) Are they not a body shop? and it's from the GM dealership(oem). So the guy goes to me "i can get you the non-paintable one instead" I ask him if it's paintable and he's all hums and haws and is like i will try to see what i can do. Can they be painted is my question, because there are lots of them done in members pics...and what about the "paintable one not fitting?...is this common?
