Default Ever Wonder What A Grille Guard Would Look On A Bonneville?

Hey,
DISCLAIMER: Sorry no pics, because it'* an idea

Okay, anyone have Cop Impalas in their community? The W-body Impalas? I have several and I've seen the grille guard they have, black upside U shaped thing. I alway thought that would look cool on a Bonneville. Call me weird but I like the idea. It would be a functional item as it would protect your front bumper from those idiots that can't gauge the distance between your and their bumpers, reduce the damage from hitting a deer. And it would help move the ricers a bit faster. Okay, it could be used to help move cars that are stuck.

Anyone like this idea? I want to do it but I can't find one cheap

Anyone want to take a stab at photoshop. If someone does, I'll worship you for a year.

Interested?

That'* definitely interesting. I like it actually . I was thinking along the lines of this.

It'* not huge but a good size and we don't want to add even more weight to the front. I like that but I would have it in silver or chrome

Hey Jack, didn't you just say you didn't have photoshop? Then how did you do this? I'm assuming you got photoshop.

I don't have photoshop, just hacked that on with Paint and a couple other programs.

Those are some cool sites for crash bars, the ones you picked out look cool but I like a more rounded look.

Now about that worshipping................
