Default custom grill for 06 cruiser

I would like to put a custom grill on my 06 cruiser, but all the really great looking grills only go to 05. Does anyone know of anyone making one for 06 and up cruisers. I have been playing around with the idea of making my own. Thanks in advance for your help.

Cool Re: custom grill for 06 cruiser

If you don't have the metal strips already embedded on your grille, you can get the same chrome grille overlay as I did.


I have the upper, lower, and fog light inserts.

If you're rolling in dough, I'd go with PTeazer!

If you read some of the other threads you'll find that there's plenty of stuff for the newer cruisers. Here's a link courtesy of SlayerDarkCross.....

Thanks for the idea's, but it looks like a home made grill for me. I already have a sheet of aluminum.

Looks like I found the same 'APA PT Cruiser Polished Billet Grille' on Ebay for ~$185 shipped.

Has anyone ever ordered one of these? I'm more afraid of rust than anything else..

Only way you'll beat that price is by buying a used one.
I've bought 1 new and 2 used - NO RUST - they are aluminum.
Bought one new for my '02, moved it to my '05 - it was fine until a deer kissed it, and that probably saved my radiator.
Bought a used replacement and another for my daughter's GT.

One tip - the bottom can be a PITA to put on - get black zip ties and zip tie it to the plastic grill that's there - the vertical bars should be black and you won't see the zip ties unless you're about 2 feet away.
