Check Out My New Grille!

I got bored so i wanted to see what i could do without spending $350 for a nice mesh grille... so i went up to my local hardware store, bought a sheet of 1/4inch chicken wire, a pair of hobby scissors, and devoted 4 hours of my night last night, let me know how you all like it, or dislike it!

Re: Check Out My New Grille!

Looks good to me. If this is what your budget allows then I think it's great.

Re: Check Out My New Grille!

hah i used black zip ties from the back side of the grille to hold them in place... and as for the budget, i made these like 2 months ago and at the time the $30 ebay ones werent even out (THEY STOLE MY IDEA haha) and the mopar version was $600 from my dealer, and there was no way i was going to remove that historic 7 slotted grille for a mesh 300C E&G grille!

Hmmm... I wonder if anyone has tried the $30+10 s/h ebay ones yet. I'd like to see how they're attached.

Re: Check Out My New Grille!

It looks pretty good for homemade. I'd paint it black though.
