don't expect the front to stay like that, changes to the grill are my current plan


Hmmm, anything along the lines of what I had planned? (chromed outer surround?)

Or you mean a different grill entirely? (quite a selection)

Nah my cars got no chrome on it, don't plan on adding any.
one idea for the grill is to completely fill it in.
ignore the bars, i photoshopped them for someone else, then the other person filled in the grill.. i kinda like it :)

i know its not to everyones liking, but i'm gunna give it a try anyway, but i'll do it to a spare grill so if i don't like it i can change it easy enough.

other would simply be a modified 'grill', not sure how i'll go about it yet.

Yeah. If you like it then go for it, but it looks like an EF GLi front but worse (not that there is anything wrong with an EF front, s**t they are one of the sexiest four doors on the planet IMO)...

I dunno. I love the EF monty front you've got now.

Well my car is an EF GLi, and i have a soft spot for the no grill look.
but as i said, i'll have 2 grills, so i can choose what i like best and go between them :)

no chance of buying an FBT grill, i'd make something up if i was to do anything.
i'd also be hesitant to go FBT grill in that its chrome mesh, i'd prefer black mesh. with the chrome outer rim, see what eventuates.
