Kaminari Kit - Does it come with grills?

Does the Kaminari front come with a grill already slapped on? Or, will I need to buy one?

nope. . you can buy it from kam though there is a thread on NC about the part number. it will run you about 140$ shipped to ur door for kam honeycomb mesh. . .

but there are other places to get honeycomb grills

Where essentially nobody really knows for sure if Kaminari sells the grill that is on their showcase car or not, I've finally got everything together and even a part #.

Always interesting, where one person calls Kaminari , and a representative at Kaminari says "just go to a hardware store and get some there".
Then another person will come onto the site and state "Yeah Kaminari sells it, just call them up".

My experience went like this:
I called Kaminari, I asked to purchase a grill for my yet to be installed Kaminari kit.
His response: We usually just have people go to a hardware store and pickup whatever they want there.
I then pushed him on the issue, i said, well I've heard that, but I've also heard that Kaminari sells a grill that is of better thickness and is just like the silver kaminari Celica on your website.
his response: Oh, well lemme go check in the back in the wharehouse to see if we have any... he then says , I'll call you back.
I waited a few days , got no call back so I called them and he had the full story for me.
him: we do sell it, here's the part number then go to this website , then call us with your cc #, you need 3 peices @ $40/pieces and it'll be $20 to ship.

So in summation:
1. Kaminari does sell the grill that you see on their car.
2. The part number is: K0GRILL (-the second character is a zero.)
3. Go to the order page on Kaminari's website, direct link: http://www.kaminari.com/order.htm Fill it out
4. You need 3 pieces if you have a full Kaminari kit
5. Each piece is $40, add $20 for shipping.
6. Call the number on the bottom of the order page to confirm it, and give them your credit card number.

Heres a pic of the stuff, I like it because it's a honeycomb mesh , rather than the diamond shaped stuff that people typically put on their cars.

i have a Fiberglass kaminari kit and it comes without the mesh. i got it from home depot. painted it and installed it myself. it looks pretty good to me. 140.00 is too much when you can have frint and back bumper taken care of for no more than 50.00( paint included).

I already bought the kit, its sitting in my garage right now. I guess I'm just going to buy some Gutter Guard and cut my own grills. Thanks for the help guys.

yeah that would be your best bet at this point. Make sure you get stainless or aluminum mesh.
