Hi,

I'm thinking to try to make my own mesh grille. I'm pretty much know what I'm going to do but still need some food for thought. Can someone post good pictures of mesh grilles? Any other types of custom grilles are welcome as well. Perhaps except OEM grille painted - I know how it looks like. Any recommendations on material to use (Steel vs. Aluminum?) appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Kirill

Re: Steel Mesh Grille Close-up Pictures Request (Papa_Kirlo)

Bought an XC like, solid black grill from eBay for $100. Just got around to painting the outer edge of it yesterday to match the gold trim on the rest of my car.

I know that the high mileage badge is suppose to go on the slash but it looks odd there. Actually I may remove it. It looks strange really anywhere.

MIJ, did he ASK for a pic of an XC grill?
No, he asked for a MESH grill

It's cheaper to just buy one and modify it the way you choose

Someone over on Volvospeed ran a thread like this and there were tons of pictures up. I'll see if I can find a link and post it back.

So THIS is what you're up to with the grille! I'd be curious to see your results ...

Cheers!



Teaser for now... It's mine. Yours is in much better condition and it's on the car now.



Cheers!
