Default Anybody tried this?

Hey all, I'm interested in getting this kit, however I wonder if anyone has used it?

01-05 PT Cruiser Retro Style Billet Grille - Unpainted.

However, this is closer to what I want to build:

This one has a different bumper of some kind, but I'm not sure if its a kit (beneath the added bumper), or if its a custom part. Would anyone have information on fitting it to a 2001?

Can I please get info?

The PT in the photo appear to be using a custom grill similar to this one:




Beyond that, the car in your photo has heavily customized from fenders that may take the place of the front bumper fascia all together. And then they've mounted a real bumper off of an older car. It may be an early VW bumper that's been slightly modified. But may be off something else.

Does PTeazer offer a smoothie bumper for the 2001 that works with that grille? And does that grille fit the 01? The website isn't very helpful on that note. . .

IMHO This would be a question directed to PTeazer.

Somewhere on the forum is a similar pic, I think it was of a Taxi.

Personally, I think that thing is fugly. But that's just me. I'd rather see you take the money that all of that would cost and get yourself a nice GT!
