I seem to remember expressing interest in an SG grille, but that seems like it was sometime last year...Oh yeah- it was!

I think im gettin gone. It looks mesh with the Subaru sign in the middle right...I think I have a pic..



I want this one....

Will it fit ours? Cheammotors.co.uk can pretty much get us anything we want. They are doing alot of group buys through the legacy boards

This was the first grille I made. It is on VSB XT's ride now. I have since made one that is Aspen White for my XT, and one in Java Black for kastle's XT. Let me find pictures of those ones...

It could be as cheap as $15 if you go ghetto style with gutter guard and a reasonably close spray paint. When I build one I am in it for around $75 with the real grill material, color matched paint, and consumables (sandpaper, fiberglass, etc.) It just takes quite a bit of time. Now that I have done three I can do one in about 1/3rd of the time as the first one took, but it still is time consuming.

$150 GBP before paint and shipping is a ton of money in my opinion...

Here is my Aspen White one... (V2 as I call it) I went with the pink F Badge for some JDM goodness ;)



Here is the Java Black one (V3), no pictures on the car yet sorry. Went with the Pink F Badge again, and filled the top holes for a cleaner look when the hood is open...

I had a buddy in Japan source them for me. Was a royal PITA. They are pricey though. With the badge, bracket, retaining clips, and shipping from Japan...

I think kastleskorner.com is going to be offering them in the future as a special order item...

Aaron,
I don't suppose you know the part no.? do you?
I will have to look, not sure if I ever got them... I sent a picture to my Japan contact and he did the legwork.

Can you order JDM part numbers from the UK dealers? In the US they can't :(

But what about the clips that were in those holes which helped secure the grill onto the car?
How do you unclip them now
