Hey guys, would anyone happen to have any pictures of the mesh section of an 1998 NL FBT grille? Im looking to make one up as i'm not keen on forking out the $700 to purchace a genuine item (as nice as it would be, i just can't justify that pricetag). Im going to find an EF grille and utilise that to make something up to look like an FBT grille.

I actually have two genuine FBT grilles ... the one on my own FBT, and a "spare" one that is a bit bent that I acquired from someone who wrote off an fbt (after some front end damage.) So, I'm happy to take some photos of it from the front (and the back and inside of the bent one).

Only catch is, in 5 hours time I'm going interstate for a week, and I haven't had any sleep yet. So, you may have to wait till I get back! :)

Do you happen to know where you got the mesh from? It's like a stainless weave, that I haven't seen around too many places.

If i remember correctly, places like Metaland and OneSteel do a wire weave mesh :?

EDIT: Shanek, i just realised you have an FBT (lucky bastard :D ), any chance you can get a few up close pictures of your grille for me?

Neo_Nick's NL has a FBT grill.


Buy the whole car and you get the grill.
