It depends on the quality and the price, but it's something I would buy.

i dont have any pictures yet because its still in the making but just imagine the grill we have now without the "H" and with the mesh in the back. its just like the civic mugen grill but with the dip we have from our "H"

When you say mesh, are you thinking of a grill like the Grill-tech/craft grills?

I would rather have it done w/o H dip... It sure would cost more but it isn't really hard job for a bodyshop so... I dunno.

not really because it'll be plastic exactly like the mugen grills for the civic

here is an example: http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/238440

the only reason why i am not doing it without the dip is because then you would have to change your whole bumper and i dont think anyone would remake a oem bumper

^^^ There probably won't be a company remaking oem bumper for just that little part, that is why I mentioned a custom work at a bodyshop. Many aftermarket bumper-replacing kits removed the wing but haven't seen any for my taste...

Wonder how this one would turn out. If price range is right, I might get one.

It might look good actually, with the dip. Someone should PS a pic, then we'll know for sure. A mesh in the opening would top it off nicely.

great job customacord, im sure alot more people will be interested, once you have the final product and with pictures. Who wouldn't want an aftermarket upper grill? Keep us updated with the finish product.

If it fits the coupe and it is half decent, correctly priced. I'll BUY!

For those of you whose want to get some custom patch work done on your front bumper to fill in the "dip" in the middle. this is what it would look like with the "wing" removed, "H" removed, and the "dip" filled in:


IMO, this would look really CLEAN!! on a coupe OR sedan.

* if you have it done properly by a pro

customcord just saved me a lot of work!

for that little dip, custom could make the grille with a bit of plastic on the bottom of it that will fill in the dip smoothly. then we could paint them ourselves before putting them in!

hmm.. not a bad idea.. just get someone to do a quick fiberglass and paint it over..

but prob not just the dip.. but the entire grill lower side to make it look flat and one-piece..

you still have to have somebody with skills using bondo or fiberglass or whatever to fill in the gap between the bumper and the filler piece that's attached to the grill otherwise there's still going to be a very clear and noticable indication of the dip. It will only look real clean if you have it joined to make it look like it's apart of the bumper otherwise it would look strange.

who ever is having this done, PLEASE post pics when it's finished because im sure there would be a TON of other members interested in doing the same

well, if the gap was really small, i wouldn't mind at all. i'd rather have the process removable in case i ever want to go back... like when i'm selling that car. it's not worth making it permanent if it can be close enough and removable, i think.

making it a permanemt part of the bumper would probably draw more positive attention since it probably wouldnt be too noticable to a normal buyer. they'd probably like it too.
