Default Changing grills.........

Im sure this has been asked before.
Can you install a 96 grille on a 94 bonneville?
Even if you had to change the hood???

Not unless you change the headlights. But that will mean you have to change the fenders, too. Do a custom mesh job. Zeke and a couple others have.

Another way would be to do that, and reattach the pontiac back in.

Or only cover the black honeycomb with mesh.
not easy, but very sturdy.

Default The Mesh

OK thought you might NOT want to try what this guy has found to do with this mesh .It'* on a dodge seabring I think .All I'm looking at is these two super sport stripes this guy has over his hood and trunk.MADE WITH THIS MESH STUFF!!!Hay just bend over the edges and you've got some DUMB *** looking stripe.Then when you look under the mesh whats the paint going to look like. DUA.PLEASE DONT TRY THIS AT HOME!!
