Grill recommendations

Can anyone reccomend a grill and or where to purchase a black mesh grill preferrable one with the rivet look? I want a cheaper one not like an RBP. That stuff is crazy overpriced. What about some cheap smoked tail lights too . Thanks.

How did you attach the mesh to the grill surround?

Screws. Creating the correct shape is the hard part, but well worth it in the end.

customcargrills.com. I've bought from him a couple times and he's awesome to do business with. I recommend buying the sample pack so you can see the different styles in person. IIRC, it's only $5 and it comes with a $5 off coupon for your next order.

Bonose,

How big is the sheet you used for the grill? I like the ways yours turned out. I am leaning that way.

You can see the sheet in the pic, don't remember the size. 18 x 48 inches I think. The hood latch is tricky, check the pics in my sig build. I made mine out of an old license plate.
