Here's my shot at a custom radiator grille. Got tired of the stock p.o.s. plastic one. It's t6061 aluminum 3/16" flat bar with 3/8" dia. vertical aluminum rods, pieces and welded together on the lower/back side.

I was planning on getting it chromed but the local chromer advised that where the vertical rods pass through each plate, the nickel would not coat properly so I got out the metal polish and you can see the results.

I'm happy with it, mission accomplished.





This is like the stock grille clip, hooks onto the c channel.


Right side has a seperate piece that bolts onto c channel.


Hole are oblonged to allow bars to be parallel to ground.

:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup: Very Nice.

I tried to go the cheap route (chrome plastic), but ripped the stuff off before I left the garage. BU

That looks great. Just a thought. If it won't chrome could you anodize it. That would give you lots of color choices over the polished surface. Also Powder coat. They have some now that mimic chrome pretty close. But really great job on that.

That looks awesome

That grille looks great, but I was wondering about those forward controls. Where did you get those from and how much would they be. Also, do those extend forward a couple of inches if necessary?
