    Has anyone done a DIY grill before? I dislike the look of my bugeye without the lower grill, and the fact that rocks are probably smashing into my rad and what not.

    I don't really see many AEM grills for sale, unless I just don't know where to look. Would like to also replace the upper one since I'm not a fan of the large honeycomb wagon grill.

    Just looking for suggestions and to see what others have done.

    I found a diy I copied for the honeycomb grill. Basically I used a rotozip to cut out all the honeycomb, sanded it smooth, then wrapped some mesh over the back. It looks good. You could use the mesh on the lower grill portion too. I'll try to find the diy

    Most of the ones I've seen have been under the hood. I would think, on the WRX, that the radiator and A/C core would make it difficult to put a grill in the lower part of the bumper. But anything is possible. auto_grill.jpg mini1.jpg bed7072639c04432726850a1a8515c37.jpg f2a008097ace8e9cb44b4d72b784b87a.jpg

    It's more of a Porsche / mid-rear engine car thing, but if you have a WRX wagon you could make it work. img.gawkerassets.com-15753-1366732430.1.jpg _31_20170216_1316655047.jpg
