think i got the idea from the sport grill but not really sure, decided to drill a few holes in the grill and give it a shot of paint to mean it up a bit.

Re: grill mod

I used a textured black but it comes out more like graphite. It was kinda a dull gray that didnt really match anything.

I like the color you used. And your rig is infinitely cleaner than mine. :crybaby2:

what spacing (inches) did you go between holes? I was seriously considering buying one off ebay, but like it was said... LOT of money for some holes...

Did a similar job on mine.

Bit of patience on the marking out and drilling, some decent paint, job's a good un :thumb:

Cornishman-

What did you use to paint your bumpers? It looks smooth, while my standard black bumpers have a texture to them. Did you sand them down? I like the bumpers, the grill is OK.

Factory colour coded, that's why it looks so good in comparison to my effort :lol:

Hi,

I´m thinking to do this too..

You measure and drill one by one or do you used another method? I´m asking because I´m thinking to get 1 of those steel sheet with holes to put over the grille and than drill the holes through the steel sheet, this way I hope to do a clean job and the holes will all be symmetric...

Regards,

I was setting up a network at a local engineering company and saw some stainless strap rods (I think they called them) which were drilled for lightness.
They measured 15mm wide and 3 metres long. The holes were already drilled at about the right spacing, bonus!
I managed to convince them to cut me a 1 metre length!!
Perfect for marking out the grill :thumb:

Would the next person to do this please use a center punch so that your holes aren't all over the place.
