    Default Custom XC70 Grill

    I have wanted to do this for the longest time, and now I am finally getting down to doing my own custom black mesh grill for my XC.

    Here is what I got done today.









    More to come tomorrow!

    Living on Andrews AFB for the foreseeable future until the housing turns to junk or I decide I want more than a 5 minute commute each day...

    That doesn't look like an 05 grille, is that an 01~04 grille you are working with?

    Yeah, It is a 2001 Grille. However I was under the impression that it would mount up just fine with my 2005. Am I incorrect on this? Now I have to go out and look at how mine mounts...

    I finished it tonight. Sorry for the dark pictures, I will try to take some lighter ones in the morning...

    I am really, really, really happy with how it turned out. What do you guys think??

    Excellent job..... what type of mesh did you use and the source?

    Btw, how did you put the emblem in place without the screws? glue?
