i personally haven't looked at a ph1 grille properly to see how or the shape behind it, but i imagine it would be fairly easy using repair mesh and body filler, or if you want it to be a little tougher using fibreglass. as long as you take you're careful and dont rush it you shouldnt have any problems.

I wouldn't know where to start!

This is what I want, 0137537517de1.jpg

im not sure that is a standard ph1 grille thats been modified.

your best bet for where to start is to take it off and have a look at it from the back, as long as you are left with something to work from to retain the shape of the central bar you can try.

i cant really advise on procedures to do it since i haven't had a look myself and i dont really want to give duff advice, if i find anything on the subject i will post it here though

Cheers. That definitely is a phase 1 with the badge cut out. Thing is, I can't find anything even similar. All I know is people have had them on their cars, but have since taken them off. Don't know whether it's because they don't last very long?? The middle bar is very thin, and right at the front of the car...

Cheers Jordan, I'm got paid today so I'm a member now. I'll check it out in a bit.

the best grill imo is the reiger one but thats personal preference

I love Reiger Grilles too, but at the moment I have no money, and I think Jordan's grille, and Marts grille (the other pic) look so much better than anything you can buy prefabricated!
