SL front grill

My 1995 SL320 has front grill slats that look like stainless steel and they look terrible.I looked up the original car and low and behold the slats were black chrome! Does anyone know how to clean the slats up or how to have them black chromed again at a reasonable price.

RE: SL front grill

ive never hear of "black chrome". do you mean they were gloss black? if so you could buy some all weather gloss black paint, or flat black and clearcoat it. cant look any worse than they do now, right?

Since you (and many others) didn't state where you are located the best i can suggest is the following:

1) Check to see that the stainless steel slats are not stuck on, ontop of your original ones.(it's a common practice nowdays)

2) Contact your local Mercedes Benz Dealer and order a new set (there are 2 types - earlier ones had 7 slats and later ones had 6)

3) Fill out your details a bit clearer (Location) so a member in your area can possibly help you out.

Good Luck[8D]
