You just bought a 25000 dollar car and are afraid of commitment? No comment.

To answer your question, I do not make the spoilers, sorry.

well........ yeah. sounds funny when you say it (and it was more than 25) it was one of the quickest decisions i've made. wife said go ahead and i said yes before she changed her mind!

thinking of going badgeless on the black

the silver has that (sorry to those of you that have it don't hate me it's just one mans opinion) ugly godshead thing on the grill. still not sure what to do about it. maybe tear up a center cap and see how that looks if it's the right size. i havent even looked into it yet.


so....i need to send you two grills and a hundred bucks to go badgeless correct? you can only get one badgless out of a donor?

FYI the center cap is not large enough to cover the Mercury wave on the front of the car. Others have used the center cap to mod the front grill but its not 100%.

The center cap works way better on the trunk badge, it will cover it 100%

Lastly, go badgeless or nothing :-)

Silver birch grills are pricey because the center section will need to be re-painted, unless you find a donor silver grill.
I have some extra bars laying around and can set you up.

These grilles look fantastic!
They won't fit my car, though lol. I did make a custom grille for my car, all I did was what the 50s custom guys used to do. It's subtle but noticeable, I like it.
But these things are really well made, well worth whatever they cost IMHO.

Thanks everyone.

Thank you for your reply, do they both need to be OEM or can one of them be an after market replacement and what is a "ballpark" turn around time?

Hey Alec, remember you get what you pay for. The quality of the aftermarket isn't as good as OEM.

Zack has the grill market on lock and his quality is well worth the wait.

Since OEM isnt available, just use whats available.

Turnaround time is 1-3 business days tops.

OEM is no longer available so unless you alreday have them, aftermarket is the only option.

The color/chrome grills I havent mae in years. the paint just does not stick well to the chrome shell, no matter how it has been prepped.
Can I still make them, sure. Gonna be $400 just to walk through that door.
I'v had real good luck sanding the chrome then using a product called Bulldog adhesion promoter. I haven't done this to a grill but I have used it on a lot of other chrome, brass and aluminum parts that spend lots of time in the Florida sunshine.

Zack,
I'm buying a used silver birch grill from musclemerc, as soon as I get my 04 birch back from Reinharts I will remove the grill from it and send them to you.
Thanks,
Alec
