If you really didn't want them, you could probably shave them off.

In the 70'*, 80'* possibly the 90'*, you could ORDER a car without the Rear Defroster. This was particularly true for cars delivered to the Deep South and Southern California where there was no need for this feature. But today ALL cars have a rear defroster grid.

Kinda what I was thinking.... If I ever get that far in my project I will just remove the grid by hand.
