And just to be clear the mesh grille is not wavy that's jut the way the photos was taken. It's 16 guage stainless no way it's warping

I would have put the metal behind the grille surround, but then again you're probably hiding a bunch of ugly cuts.. Get back to your head studs
Lmao! Yeah it started as an XL grille so plenty of cutting was involved, ugly? Not so much. I was going for an RBP style grille sooooo. I really should have done the studs today but I'm drinking beer watching the game instead, next weekend I guess.

Looks good! No the snaps are just my attempt at a rugged look I guess (RPB style)

Yeah I sanded an old emblem agjake gave me and color matched it. The original ford writing stuck out just enough for me to have some black vinyl writing made so I covered it with that.

Glad you guys like it. It was a pain in the ass to get everything lined up perfectly

Looks good but I'd went with a smaller more subdued bolt to attach it with, those are too big and detract from what you did there........nice custom and damn sure not $800 like another grill I know..........

So did you use the mesh bumper inserts off eBay and attach to close grille or what? If not where did you get your mesh and rectangular piece from that houses the mesh
