    976ECAF0-2E2F-45FE-A7F7-C5A5D91773FE.png Has anyone out there used this grill? It’s the look I’m going for but not sure about the quality.

    Yep, that's what I have. I then added an SHO emblem on the lower corner of the grill. There's some cutting to do and not "plug and play", but it turned out really nice. Definitely the look I was after.

    Did you follow the instructions on the video or was there something else you did differently to install?

    I followed the video. The instructions are very thorough. The only other thing I did was have the grill surround vinyl-wrapped in black. The result is a nice, menacing look.

    That's a super clean setup! The image in the post above is for a '10-'12 car though. Your car is a '13+. Do they offer both configurations?

    I have a 2011 and unfortunately there aren’t nearly as many options for aftermarket grills or grill inserts. Mine was originally chrome and I painted it black but all I did was make a crappy chrome grill into a crappy black grill.

    I know, but his pic from the vendor, shows a version for his MY. Should be very similar.

    Christain - great looking car. Do you have a side shot you could share? Looking to black the chrome and possibly add black wheels to my white platinum as well, but I am having a hard time visualizing the look.

    Thanks

    That is my car. I bought that mesh and cut the stock grille, installed it, for the time being I plasti dipped the grille black. Sent the pics to custom car grilles. He made it grille of the week. This was back in 2016. I posted a few months ago about this and how he uses my pic to sell the mesh lol. It's cool I don't mind although I would prefer that to be communicated lol!

    This was it. Saved in my email to him. Back then it was T-Rex which I though looked cheesy or a MobSteel grille for like $400+. Mine cost me about 100 and a pair of balls to chop up my one and only stock grille.

    I was going to do a pre cut one, but the patterns all sucked. So I did the same thing as 802SHO.

    Yea, that grill looks t*ts. Better looking and cheaper than the alternatives I’ve seen for the 10-12 models. And since I have just finished drilling and tapping the Ptu I feel bullet proof right now lol.

    Love them. Almost 2 years now and they still look absolutely like new. They haven't budged and are easy to keep clean. Every 6 months or so, I spray some Mothers QD to keep them shiny and protect them from the elements a bit.
