What have people done in the way fo custom grills, or even just the standard grills?

I will be getting rid of my bloody chrome bubble grill off the lane shortly, and thinking of something a bit out of the ordinary. So i was wondering what people have done.

If people could post a picture of there grills, it would be appreciated.

Dunno if theres much you can do apart from fit a NF fairlane grille which looks better than the NL type, or mesh a EF Fairmont grille and add chrome strip around the edge of the mesh to tidy it up.

PM 'low ghia' he will tell you how he did his :)

Yeah i really dont know what they were thinking with the NL grill, it is just way out there and looks cheap and nasty!

I dunno, ive been thinking of something custom (as in getting a shop to make one up form scratch), but i really dont know where to start with designing one. I really dont mind where the design comes from, as long as it looks goo on the e series shape.

chrome when u look at it straight on and it changes to gold the more of a angle you move to, or if your in the shade

straight on-- hard to get a pic cos of the mirrored backing behind the mesh

That would look stupid why would you ruin a sexy front end liek that with lights all over it?

That bar is history now and i think the car is for sale?

How much did that cost you mate?
What would you sell a grill liek that for? eg if i sent mine up and you chromed it and added the grill?
It looks awsome but will go good with the EL Fairmont moulds rather that the EF ones IMO

costs are paint stripper, few sheets sandpaper, autosol, acrylic clear, mesh. As for how much would i charge, prolly heaps lol.....your better off having a go at it yourself mate, its not too hard :)

Ive got it on the car now, and it looks nice but needs more chrome in the front bar to help it blend in more

EL chrome moulds look ugly in my opinion...... dunno what to do really?
