Default Custom Grill?

I was thinking about customizing my front grill. Do you know how expensive that'd be to take out the old grill and the pontiac sign in the middle and replace it with for ex.: a chrome grill for that and the bottom opening? I've seen a pic or two of bonne'* that have done that, and I think it looks very nice.

What year is your car? I'd have to do some cutting to remove the pontiac logo. I probably wouldn't go that route, anyway, I'm running the 1/2 bra.

Changing a grill is minor for any able bodied body man! Just pic a design to fit the hole & dish out a fistfull of cash to get it done!

Default i'm gonna do it.

I went to AutoZone today to look at their grills. What they have is a big rectangular grill for 40$. What you do is cut out what you need. A guy at autozone gave me a bit of advice on how to get the old grill out and the pontiac emblum. I'm gonna give it a shot, hopefully i do well! lol
