Well some of the ohio/pa guys know that I started to do a custom grille towards the end of last summer. Well I finally got it back from my painter today to prefit the mesh.

Click to make pic's bigger.

I started out with a Chrome GMC grill from ebay....



This is what the grille looks like after you cut the center out. Notice missing sections on the sides where the gmc grille bars used to be..... *pic below stolen from for20 thanks



After I cut the center of the grille out with a dremel. I had my local body man fill in those missing sections for me and prep the chrome for paint.









2 1/2 inchs of depth......woot


I also had him fill in the little vent thing that is built into the ends of all 355 grills.


Here's a pic with the black poweder coated mesh grill laying behind the grill that I need to mount.


I will post a few more pics of the grill once I mount the mesh and test fit the grille on my truck. Once thats done I will have him paint it to match my truck.

Looks tight man. I think it was also smarter to start out with the gmc grille instead of the rado grille like codered did.

I like it...Alot. I'm just warning you about the mesh being so " see through" I'm still wanting to paint my rad support and what not black so it doesn't look as dumb.

I hope you dont care that I used one of your pics. I forgot to take a pic of it after I cut the center out lol. If I wouldnt have posted your pic but I dont know if anyone would have figured out what I did to the grille.

I know what your saying about being able to see the core support Ill probley paint it black :salute:

I used l brackets welded to the mesh. Then mount the l brakets to the grill in certain places. Ill take some more detailed pics. Sorry for stealing the thread. Post up how you mounted yours brewer.
