upper grill finished. lowers painted and put back but not meshed yet. still trying to figure out what i want to do with them... i think i might put the mesh behind in the centers so the "support posts" in the middle stand out. and mesh the front of the lower sides.

looks great so far. I kinda like not having those "bars" in the lower middle. I just think it should have been upside down with the shorter side on top

i will get pics up when my battery charges didnt know it was left on all night.... NOW FOR THE SHITTY PART!!! i put the grill frames back in to see what they look like and forgot to take them out. no biggie cause they snap back in with the clips right. right but since the center part of the grill no longer exists there is no center support so it bows. well since i forgot to take them back out, i was headed home from work not thinking about anything until i hear a noise from something hittin under the car and looked in my review mirrow and guess what it was the center lower grill that i spent so much time modding... there it went down the hightway to get run over by the semi behind me. so now i gotta find another one to redo. POS!!!
