    I believe it will be the same as the Chevy, Argent Silver, I might be mistaken.

    Apparently GMC grills are not Argent... I'm trying to find out what the color is also. Supposedly it is a more flat color, not metallic.:shrug:

    If your original is in great shape then of course restore it.. it will be better quality than a repop. If it’s brittle and cracked/broken ? There are some good reproduction pieces. I’ve restored a few grilles with excellent results.
    Here’s an ‘84 GMC restored 036CAC34-00ED-498D-85FB-2BB34ACE90E8.jpeg
