Upper grill on Veilside bumper
Where can I find a grill to put in the upper hole on the VS bumper? I need one where the little holes are smaller..
Anywhere except GrillCraft..too expensive.

any tunning shop shold be able to hook you up, if all else fails, you can go to Home Depot and buy some from there. I think WW/Kaminari sell grills, I dunno, I'll have to double check, unless you wanna do it grin

you can take it to an autosport shop and they can do it.

also, as mentioned..you can do it yourself with wire mesh or honeycomb aluminum from an arts & crafts store.

for the install guide for a STOCK front grille, you can find it in this link below. obviously the install will be very different, but the basics of the install are the same so you can see how to mount & bend the mesh/honeycomb correctly thumbsup

go to your local hardware store...find a grill mess you like...have it cut the right size and attached from behind.

speaking of grills in veilside bumpers , there is the big hole in the VS1 rear bumper .When you put the rear bumper on you have to take the styrofoam "bumper" out and all that is left is a big silver bar that lines up with that opening. i have a silver grill in there and my car is silver , that opening doesnt really STICK OUT that much . has anyone painted the body under the bumper a contrasting color to make the opening show more ? everyone will have the same problem B/C the body under the bumper will always be the same color as the bumper. pictures would be nice smile
