Picked up a BNIB EL Fairmont grill for $20 at a local auction so I reckoned it was cheap enough to mess with, I wouldn't mind colour coding it to the Navy Blue though - just matt black ATM
What do you guys reckon ?
Theres still some lip around the centre bar and outer plastic that I reckon needs to go but I was a bit nervous I'd screw it up... give it a week or two :-)

i like the way the mesh behind the grill there contrasts to the dark colour of your car tho.

go with whatever you prefer tho - as it is of course, your car!

Thanks guys... glad you like it, being brand new I had a hard time deciding whether to cut it up or just fit it like it was (would still have been an improvement over the old NL grill IMO)... glad its done now tho !

Its just a regular EL Fairmont grill mate, I picked it up locally still in the original box and pulled the black bars out, cut the tabs behind them and smoothed it over. Painted matt black and meshed it turned out not bad..
