New OBS Grilles

Ford F-150 1992-1996 RC1CG | 1992-1996
Found this company lastnight. A more expensive option but it's something different to the old billet bar grille. It would probably look similar to this....

I won't be buying one but it is better than when RBP did a group buy and was going to make them and charge $800. If somebody wants to pay that kind of money for a grille, go right ahead. Your truck and your money. I'm gonna attempt to make one using my grille shell and either mesh or billit.

I don't understand the fascination with these grilles. The mesh portion looks good, but the border/rivets or bolts just makes it look like something thrown together at some backwater body shop.

I'm not the best photo editor but here's what I had in mind. I like the looks of the mesh as well but not really fond of the studs or bolts needed to attach it. Plus if I don't get my marks precise and my holes are offset they would look even worse. Any idea on attaching mesh without drilling holes all around the grill shell? Also how would I attach the billet?

I like the first option best. There is a company out there that makes a billet grille that is designed to fit in a stock grille with the center cut out... If I can find a stock grille for my new truck (which has a billet grille in it) I might see about doing something similar.

Yeah I can't think of the company right off hand but they're around $180! That may be cheaper than buying another stock grill and the billit grill but that still sounds expensive when you can get the full replacement for $120 tops
