I'm glad you gave the finished project a fresh thread. It's one of the two best looking grille blocks I've seen here. Great work!

With Ziptie Plugs you can remove the block without any tools.

Front paged.

I've seen a lot of negative comments in regular gearhead forums about ecomodders' cars looking like junk because of cardboard, coroplast and duct tape. (I'm guilty of that for sure, but I also don't really care what the car looks like.)

Mods like this can be held up as examples for people who want to have their nice-looking cake and save gas with it too.

What's the reason for the pop-out edge there? Something to cover up aero-wise? Other than that, I dig it.
