Re: custom grille build thread

I bought some gutter covers from home depot for about $4 each (2 total). I cut them down into individual strips and plasti dipped them.

Re: custom grille build thread

I was able to fasten the covers to the back of the grille by snapping them into place utilizing the plastic pegs that were left over from the original grille strips.

Re: custom grille build thread

Pics of the final product. All in All it took me about 3 hours with dry time and fiddling with securing the vents but I'm pretty happy with the look and the price was not bad at only $8 bucks since I had the vht and pd already.
