I just am experimenting with new grill bar looks (looks to Honda like for me), this was my first try so no crticizing the application, just give an opinion of the general look and Idea...
I used some Carbon fiber look vinyl...

Stick with the chrome it highlights the base color. This looks like you are trying to go stealth which is probably impossible iin a Sky! But if thats what makes you happy then it's OK with me.

I see where you are going -- I am too much a purist -- Personally I'd leave it alone. But - it adds punch to the logo (if that is what you are looking for) and plays down the glitz.

I think it would look better on a lighter color car... yellow, white, etc. It just blends in a bit too much on your car. Doesn't look bad, but makes the car a little more understated... of course, if that is your goal, then it may be just what you want!

We're probably so used to seeing the chrome that we're thinking it's "off" without it.
You have to stand back a bit to see it with fresh eyes, and it gives it a new good look.
Maybe mask off the top of the Saturn logo part to square off that region?
That may be throwing it off a bit. Don't know. Lotta personal preference in here.

I agree that lighter color cars would look best with that. SkyBaby-07

I like chrome too, but I just can't get over the HONDA look of the grillbar....
that is the only thing i want to change, if someone would make an insert to replace the plastic grill part that has the mesh all the way up, then i would put it and a small Chrome outline of the opening...

I agree about the Honda thing. I don't like what you have so far, but I think your on the right track. I had thought about removing the bar alltogether. But I kind of like the saturn logo. Keep working on it. Maybe we'll come up with an idea.

Awhile ago I was playing around with the idea of painting the chrome to match the car. 1st pic.

2nd pic, removing the chrome with only the Saturn badge remaining.

What is it?

"Awhile ago I was playing around with the idea of painting the chrome to match the car. 1st pic.

Just my opinion... 1st pic looks more Honda - 2nd pic more like Mustang.
Most people still don't recognize the Sky when they see it now. This would really leave them quessing...:jester: :jester:
