Any Ideas For A Custom Front Grille For An AU1?

Gday guys,

Im sorta getting the urge to do a custome front end for my AU instead of going down the same road as everyone else, wanna make it stand out a bit. Does anyone have any ideas for a cool custom front grille and/or front bumper. Im after something nice looking but different to what everyone else has like the Hawk or C2R grille.

Cheers guys,
Brad

C2R grille price is ridiculous in my book, $450 unpainted. Surely there has to be something i can do that is custom and will look good

Re: Any Ideas For A Custom Front Grille For An AU1?

with an AU is a bit touchy though, cos it can be done so right, or done so wrong. there's a fine line...

which is why AU1 forte is uglier than my arse hair, but the T3 is as hot as my girlfriend.

yeah it is, unless you convert to a fairmont style front end and put the mesh in yourself.

yes, it is

While your at getting the body repairs done BlueAU shell out for a series2 bonnet and TE front bar/grille combo... An AU2 bonnet is $200'ish and SSV have the TE fronts for $625 unpainted... So for $1000 ballpark the car will look completely different
