The grille has a hole in it and some of the pieces that hold the grille on are broken off (but still attached to the hood). I was gonna take it off and glue or w/e the pieces back on so its a whole piece again and then I figured I would cut out all the mesh part and replace it with the same wire mesh Im gonna use in the SC cover. Has anyone done this? Anyone have any pics? Does this sound like it might look pretty good?

EDIT: I figured itd be a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a new grille plus if worse comes to worse I could always paint the new wire mesh white like the car

Mine is black and I was looking at it today while getting the oil changed.
I was thinking it would be cool if I could get it gold plated like the emblem.

Do you see in the pic how it just disappears?
I would like it to contrast more and thought the gold plating would do it.
Who plates plastics?
