What you can do, which will improve the look of it completely, is to color-code the grill. It may not be a fix, but sure does look a lot neater.

See here, for what i mean: http://lg.fordforums.com/images/27-02-05/DSC00999.jpg

Otherwise you can get a C2R Grill, or make up your own mesh for it.

As above a C2R grill (i was quoted from a C2R distributor $400 for the grill painted and the mesh), or put some mesh in the one you have or get a fairmont one.[/img]

The c2r grill only fits the front skirt they make, doesn't it. It looks like i'll have to try and make my own i guess. Any pics of other peoples mods would help?

Does any one know of someone who could make me a custom one or can do it themselves. What would be the approximate price to would be good.

Cheers

Pull your existing grille out and check how hard it'd be to make one. I've pulled ours apart and it would be a lot of work to get the grille looking right..
