    Custom NAV Front Grill

    Hi all,
    This past weekend I made a custom mesh grill for my NAV. Theres a few small things left to do but it's installed and about 90% done. If anyone is interested in seeing some pics let me know.

    Very interested. Make sure you detail what materials you used. Did you make it from scratch? Or based on the stock one but with mesh inserts/replaced pieces? Mine has damage from a rock (fist-sized @ 60mph) so I need to either fix the damage or replace the chrome strip.

    Alright so basically I removed the black part of the grill under the "buck tooth" and after that I removed just the chrome trim. I ordered perforated hex mesh from custom car grills and made a template of the chrome trim with bristol board. I cut the mesh to fit on the back of the chrome trim based on my template and installed the trim to the car using JB Weld. I attached the mesh using wire and more JB Weld. If you want more detail ill do a full write up when I get time. Ill upload the picture I took as soon as it uploads to my computer from my phone.

    Don't need an essay but pictures would be great. Curious to see what it looks like.

    Cheers
