The OEM Core guard was painted about 2 years ago, but the paint didn't last long because the rust was not removed properly and the surface preparation was not good enough. I thought about repainting it, but I thought it would rust again after a while, so I decided to replace it.
At first, I was thinking of Plain ones without Logoetc., but I chose A-TECH because of its low price.
Regarding the product, although it was unexpectedly thin, the finish was good and favorable. The precision was good and the mounting holes were Exactly. It is also finer than OEM, so it will be more effective in protecting the Radiator. I was concerned about the chatter sound, so I thought about using the anti-vibration material that came with the product, but the upper hook is folded back to the point where the core guard is effectively attached to the radiator. However, the upper Hook was folded back so that the Core guard was almost stuck to the Radiator, and the attached anti-vibration material did not seem to fit in the almost no gap. I ran a test run and did not feel any chattering sound, so I decided to use it as it was. Then, in the Instruction Manual, it says [Color] It says to clear paint it, but I'm thinking of using it as is for the time being, and then doing it together when I have a chance to paint something else.
I thought it would be better without the logo, but when I installed it, I feel that A-TECH's logo is a good accent. I guess there are people who like this kind of thing, but for me, I like it.
