Looks sweet, and just in time for our meet today :D

Mmm, and look at that beautiful Michigan weather behind him. 72 degrees, no clouds, light breeze, ahh, it's such a perfect day for this meet.

Very sharp though.

real easy to do. All ya need is tin snips, a small drill and zip tie's.

I believe zip ties are one of mans greatest achievements. Screw going to the moon weve got zip ties........oh yeah dont forget about velcro which is an even greater achievement.

duct tape = bad news

cant forget duct tape when your talking about velcro and zip ties ;)
When it comes to vehicle modification, duct tape should be taken out of the equation.

Lets see what duct tape has done for the car industry:
1, Body kits that don't fit
2, Mirrors and Plates that have fallen off
3, Numbers on cars
4, Antennas
5, Spoilers, misc applications here
6, Headliners
7, Boost gauges (very important on NA cars)
And under the hood
7, Boost gauge (MAP) sensors (I used 7 twice)
8, radiators
9, intakes, esp. to fit an intake not designed for your car
10, to hold worn spark plug wires to the coil pack (i have seen it with my own eyes)

yeah, around the house, it is the 8th wonder of the world... around the car, it just makes everyone else look good.

That looks crazy cool. How did you cut out the fog light inserts? dremel? I really want to do mine, but I might black matte it, but the crome/galvinized look is pimp too.

I just trimmed the mesh to fit over the plastic mesh. I drilled a couple of holes through the plastic mesh and used zip ties to fasten it. I didnt feel like cutting any holes either so I didnt bother. Ill post some close ups in a few min.

Did you get it from custom car grills? Does it come in that silver color or did you have to paint it? Looks awesome btw...
