Howdy,

thought I'd post a few pics of the custom grille that I just finished for my SF5 Forester GT.

I basically cut out the middle section of the grille, sanded, bogged and prepped the grille, painted, and affixed the mesh along with a Japanese-spec 'f' badge.

Looks awesome! Good job. BTW, what wheels are those...can't tell from the pics.
The rims are AU-Racing rims, part no. AU-229. Not sure if they are available outside of Australia under this brand. They are basically a Volk TE37 copy, but with a polished metal lip:




cheers
Pete

can you help me please?

Hi, Nice job on the grill mate!, I have been trying to think how to modify my grille like this for a while now, I've done it before on other cars and they look great as an added feature. The problem is I don't want to mess it up then it's to late going back after you start cutting out the middle original grille. Do you have any tips for me? or a video? or pictures? something to help me out? How did you manage to cut out the middle bit all around it? Anyway if you have the time to help me it would greatly appreciated, thanks, and again nice job!.
Cheers, Chis.
