I just completely covered the grill on my Shadow with duct tape. Then I spray painted it to match.

The whole car is Rustoleum Metallic Blue anyways, so the color matches perfect.

No problems what-so-ever with that. When I stuck some coroplast down the front, I DID have to cut some slots in it to keep the car at the right temperature.

Now if only there is something I could do about the crappy 3-speed automatic transmission.
