Posted 20 November 2004 - 10:12 PM
they look like this..
I cut out the emblem with about 2in of the slat on each side
then form another 2dr grill i cut out the middle slat big enough to sill the opening.
it's my first time trying this, so i got alot of gap to fill...

About time! I found 2 Coupes at the Yard today and i was going to swipe their grills so I could modify them. But I didnt Just takes too much time and that bondo messes me up!
Hmmmm maybe I just don't know all the details, but couldn't you just use a plastic welder? I haven't done anything with grills, but I have repaired plastic fairings for motorcycles (last one was from my '01 ZX9r .. 900 ninja) with a very in-expensive welder I bought at harbor freight. I sold some of these fairings on ebay for a good price. I would think over time that the vibration would cause bondo to crack since it doesn't expand and shrink at the same rate as the plastic under it?
Either way, that grill looks great!
I can't wait to be able to get pics of my custom bumper up when I have my own computer on-line again ... especially once I have the Brat painted
