I was going to get this, but unfortunately this is high-priced unobtainium here in the States... :(

If companies put an email address on their Websites then they should be prepared to maintain it to the best of their ability, ignoring potential customers emails can be bad advertising as word of mouth spreads faster than a bushfire.

I surmise that nobody here will deal Cheam Motors after BlueDevils experience.

Thanks for that Griffo

Having seen the picture I think the standard grill that I've already got looks better.

Or do what I did and buy a near new OEM grill from Ebay (a few around from people buying the sports grill.

I am now going to dremel out the crossbars and install a mesh to the frame.

I can then keep my stock one if I get tired of the modded one

I sure wish GrillCraft would make a fitment for Foresters. I had one of their grilles on my STi, and it was great. Looked good, kept bugs (not to mention gravel) out of the radiator fins, and was rock solid. Well worth the cost. HPH

Umm.. I'm embarrassed to say I used a super cheapy and now and then give it a touchup. Heat isn't an issue . A good quality spraycan would no doubt be a bit more durable but up to you really.

Cheers :icon_cool:

Wonder if eventually it will all flake off. Sounds like it will given the prep (or lackof) and the touchups needed.

One reason why I got a 2nd hand spare one to play with.

However, whatever makes you happy

With that extra grill, that allows you to be much less worried. fourXTer's grill still looks great blacked out. years back, I used a semi-gloss clear red spray on my rear taillights, to make the yellow portion go away. It looked great for a year or 2... then started to lose its gloss.. by year 4.. Specks of it started coming off, until the yellow signal of the taillight started to become visible. I had applied 2-3 coats of the spray.
