I'm looking for some black plastic grille mesh, like what comes with the Nismo bumper. I'll be attaching it to my new Aerosync front bumper, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Z1Auto carries them, but they're out of stock.

I prefer it to be plastic mesh, but the Z1 grille was powdercoated aluminum which would work fine. I included some pics to give an idea of what I'm looking for. :thumbsup:

:drool: Just seeing that pic got me excited about my new bumper!

Sorry the pic is so big. I'd resize it, but I want to give the full resolution so you guys would know what I'm looking for.

Thanks for the help in advance. :wavey:

Buddy,

I found a few options for the grill material. They are available through McMaster-Carr. I have attached links. Let me know how you make out with the new front bumper. I am considering the same bumper for my car.

That link works for me. :thumbsup:

Anyone know about what size I should go for? Keep the small rocks out and the good air coming through. :cheers:

Not the same thing, he wants it to go behind the grille....I have that street scenes grille, be careful installing, the clips tend to rust and I ended up w/ rust spots on mine, gotta powder coat it and reinstall, I am thinking plastic clips or even zip ties :lol:

I e-mailed Sung at KbodyShop Buddy...will let you know what material he uses, assuming it's not a closely guarded secret.

Thanks K. :yourock:

Z1Auto carries what I need, but they've been telling me about an order they placed that still hasn't come in. I'm running out of time. :doh:

That's on an OEM bumper. They are just chrome door trim protector strips that I cut to fit over the stock grille.

I have an aftermarket bumper now though, so I need something to fit behind my new grille.
