Is this better? I kinda like it. This one is just made from 18ga steel as I didn't want to waste my good alum on a prototype.....and I can already tell I'm going to have to add a 3rd vertical support in the center to keep it from vibrating at speed, but I think the horizontal slats worked out pretty nicely. What are your thoughts?

I like it far better than the first one. Powdercoated and with a third vertical support, they'd look really nice on a gen 2. I'd definitely get one... eventually.

I think the grill looks good as is. Great job man. On a side note that new gel coat on the gen 2 looks like it is a lot better than the first gen.

Digging it, how will these install Shane, are they press fit and clip in?
They will be the same basic design as the Gen I Grille. The vertical supports are slotted as well as the back side of the horizontal slats so they fit together. I use panelbonding adhesive on the bottom side of the slats to bond them to the vertical supports. The vertical supports have long tabs at the top and bottom that extend forward and get bonded to the rough side of the hood opening.

I will try to get the drawing modified for that third support in the next couple of days. Price will be the same as the Gen I Front Grille.....$78. Slats are shorter, but there are more of them, so they take up about the same amount of material.

Thanks guys!
