Finally did the grille mod

EDIT
I will now be using this thread to update anything i do to the Mada. Figured just put it all on one thread than make a new one everytime.

So i finally did the grill mod today but instead of using the expanded metal i found this clover pattern aluminum sheet. What do you guys think? i was thinking about painting it white but kinda like the shiny look.

NEW PICS:





AIRAID!!!

Thanks Junior714, It was really simple and didn't take that long. the only thing is that the aluminum is a little flimsy so if it doesn't last i will switch it out for the expanded metal

That turned out real nice opm! I want to do just that to my White Horse. I will probably rhino line mine to make it a little stiffer. Where did you get the material?

Very nice. I would do this, but I fear the salt will kill the look after a winter.

Also, I saw you signature, are you really getting 16.2 MPG on your Armada? That is awesome you must do a lot of highway driving.
