Yes, a different material, even plumbing pipe insulation slipped onto the horizontal fins in the lower grill, will be less obtrusive, more stealthy. It's too bad we aren't all close enough to do meets and share skills and materials. I have a ton of that insukation and extra coroplast and the flat black plastic I used on my grill blocks.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
