Yeah I know what you mean about the lip getting beat up. I'm a fan of the badge on the mkvs myself. opcorn:Reason why lip isn't painted is because it will get scraped etc, I kinda like it, but I'm not sure. I was thinking of putting factory Gil lip back on.
I'm still deciding on the grille. I like Big Meech's front end. I think I'd lke chrome face and mirrors. Or Wolfe grills with badge.
I'll see how much $$$ it is o fill the notch though.
