Default any ideas on where I would go??

I'm looking to have a custom grill made/fitted on my '06 TE...anyone have any ideas on who to contact? I'm looking for completely custom. If anyone has any ideas let me know and I'll explain it a bit better to you so you have an idea of what I'm talking about.

You haven't filled out your profile so I can't tell where you live but most major cities have custom auto shops that would fabricate or install parts for your cruiser. Best thing for a job like that is to attend some local cruise-ins and ask around for good body/paint shops that do custom work.

I've had custom fabrication and paint work done at a place where you wouldn't think to go...my local KIA dealer. The body shop/paint guy turned out to be a car customizer and I struck a deal with the shop foreman for the guy to do work on my car when he wasn't busy fixing/painting KIA's.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

I think Volkswagon tried something like that, it didn't sell too well.

That was a joke, although they do sell those front ends for the bug. Hopefully yours will be very tasteful and aerodynamically pleasing to the eye.

Basically, the Caddy grill your talking about is chrome squares not a whole lot different from the chrome grill you can buy for the cruiser now except your square holes will be larger.

ahh ok...any idea on how much larger that grill would be? Would it even be possible to customize it to fit? I guess I will most likely just have to buy the grill and go to town but I'd rather not waste the $75-$100 for nothing.

I'm no customizer but that grill looks bigger than the front grill of our cruisers. I'd take a few measurements, take a picture and find someone who knows more about doing that kind of job to see what they say. The Escalade is about twice the size of our cruiser.

If your talking about a horizonal billet bar grille, contact 'Grille4You.com', they are great, and can do anything!
