So ugly, yet so beautiful. Nice work, now start cleaning it up!
Yup! LOL!!! Thanx.

I'm thinking about trying to find a big enough clear piece of plexiglass or lexan to make the whole thing out of it. That might be the "cleanest" look of all - allowing the stock front end to show, and maybe only noticable when reflections hit it and/or looking at it from a side angle. And instead of the single 6" diameter hole, making a row of smaller (2" or 2.5") holes along the bottom of the actual grille area. If I calculate the actual sq. inches, I could make it more than the single 6" hole, but cover some (starting on the outside) with that clear packing tape as needed. If summer comes & I find it's running hot, just start ripping tape off the holes to adjust....
