aAain i had to much time on my hands, and how board can a fordmodder get well i will show you how board i can get at times.

I had an idea a wile back to do the mesh in the grill and when i spoke to a few people Paulc said i have some left over mesh you can have.

So with half an hour last night i got to doing what you see below, all i need to do now is paint the rivets white to hide them.

it gets rid of only seeing black behind the grill.

Huh,,, that looks just like mine, except I folded my grill so instead of it being all the way in the back, it's most of the way to the front.. then I stuck a ford badge in the middle ALA ED/ED and it looks mint.. (because I'd already filled and painted the EA badge location.

I'll take a photo of mine sometime..

I was going to put it up the back initially too, but decided you'd hardly notice it and I wouldn't be able to put the badge in..

ITs trickier to get it near the front as you have to fold and shape the grill, but the end result is much more eye catching.

i like subtle changes like that , in not much of in un ya fase top of modder.

i like the mods you need to look at the car to see them not ones that stand out more than the car.

Top job BuNtEr. Looks great. Wish I had more time on my hands these days. Aren't enough hours in the day. But then again the more time on spend on the car, the more jealous the missus get's, so I can't win.
