I bought a stock OEM 300 grill off Ebay for $40.00,waiting for it to arrive.
I am thinking to modify it the following way.Either paint out ,
or remove completely, the vertical bars of the grill (see below picture),
and then add Diamond mesh behind the Horizontal bars.
Would be a different look,huh?
Any input,or thoughts on this ingenius idea??
lol :D

Temporary. . . .

This is not a definite,but if I did install this grill,it would be
only till I get the T-Rex-chrome edition.
That's my favorite.
Thanks

Unless you are a masochist, don't fool with a temp change if you know the T Rex is going to be the end all. Those 4 lower bolts are pita to remove and you run the risk of scratching your paint with each grille removal. Save your energy for the trex, re list the stock grille on ebay for a profit, unless of course you think this will obviate the need for the T rex, just my .02

I like it.
Emphasizes the "redness" of the car and is an original concept.
Done right, you'll end up with a winner.
Good luck!
(Make sure you post an "after" photo).
PS - Red pillar posts might go well with such a "redder-than-red" theme. Yours would be the first.

Nope... 1 is enough for me,thanks anyway.

After some input,and looking at some pictures,I have decided
NOT to have the Polished Stainless Steel in the background.
I may have some Black or DLR painted mesh.
Not real sure..just thinking..hmm..scary :eek:

I had a similar idea to put mesh behind the the OEM grill painted to match the car. It would be subtle (some would say completely worthless) but would add more depth behind the grill. I like the "heavier" grills because they look more substantial and add "weight" to the front end. I think adding a mesh behind OEM would achieve similar gains, cheaply and be unique from all the aftermarket grills that EVERYONE has.
