Badgeless Grill

Postby eyebrows » Wed Oct 14, 2009 7:38 pm

Well i hope this helps anyone who is interested in making a badgeless grill. Unfortunatly during the process i forgot to take a couple of pics but its easy enough :-bd

My origional idea was just to take the badge out and cut the right lengths to fit where it went. But you could see the back plate and i didn't want this.
Image

So i decided to cut this section out
Image

Then i used the first top bit again when finally fitting this bit i packed loads of fiberglass between it and the top part of the grill to hold it.
Image

Then i masked the lower sections and marked them up. As you can see i used a piece with the support in so this will act as the new middle support for the grill.
Image

Image

I then trimmed/cut to size. Better to cut a bit big and file the last bit :-bd

Image

Image

I forgot to take any pics of this bit!

Happy with the fit i put 3Tonnes of fiberglass on the back of the grill. I covered both bottom slats on the back and joined the small fin i left at the top of the pic below to the top section of the grill. Any fiberglass visable from the front i filed down when it was dry.
Image

Then i filled and sanded until i was happy and then filled and sanded till i was a bit more happy.

Then i cheated a bit i used PLASTIC FILLER PRIMER. I did this to make sure i had filled it all properly!
Image

Then i sanded it again and gave it another coat
Image

Then i gave it a light sanding and a couple of top coats
Image

Image

I was supplied with cellulose spray paint which i dont nomally get so the colour isn't exact if get offered this again i won't be getting it :-q

Very good how to, looks much easier to do than my attempt with the 206 grille. It's in 2 parts and far too flimsy as it's quite long when joint together so it cracked in the centre :( Just bought an ecosse grille and now I dont know whether to fit it or not :) )

Only problem I've found with the debadged grill is that the front end can look like a Mk3 Escort from some angles when at a distance...

Other than that, nice write-up!
