And a close up with FLASH on full ball.

Thats why you can see the radiator and **** behind it.
I might put some black mesh or something behind it to cover up the radiator etc.

Looks cool mate, definitly looks better than the regular XD style vertical grill fitted the the AU2.

Good stuff. Should take a piccie of the whole car so we can see the full effect.

Re: I like.....

THE DOCTOR said:
top stuff J looks good. what was involved...:rocking:
basically I cut some alloy woven mesh to size, screwed in place of the existing AUII bars on the grille.

Then I put some silicone ulong the edges on the back to re-inforce the mesh to the surround.

Then I brought some chrome strip with a small black lip on the edge. I placed the black lip around the mesh to help hold in place and also to cover the jagged edges. and stuck it down.

Looks great jaytyn!:nuts:
Now I'll just have to get going and do it to mine. I've been saying that since Blown AU done it to his.:rolleyes:
Did you get the mesh from the same crowd as Zeus?

Jaytyn,

That looks very nice and classy. Your car looks like it can pass as the series III AU. IF i had an AU i'd follow suite. IMO i reckon it looks good how it is, i don' tthink you need to cover the back of the mesh.

Definitly changed the look of the front and gives the grill a much better definition.
