Anyone have a link or know the name of the mod done to move grille from the hood and install it on the bumper/radiator support?
I just need to see some pics of how the latching/release works.
Thanks!

I know Chris "SWT SS" did that mod on his SS. But unless it has been done or rewritten since September 09 you are SOL. The server crashed on the big board in August 09, and all info prior to that was lost. Links to the threads are there, just no threads.

I've looked into it before, I dont think there is a write up left of it. If there is, I could not find it.

My understanding is that it is all "custom" brackets you can make with parts from the hardware store, I'm still considering it, but it's not high on my list at this point due to a lack of info on it.

^I've never even thought of anyone trying that. At first you think it would be a pointless mod, but then the car almost looks more "right" with the hood opening independently of the grille shell. I like that!

All I needed was the pic of the L bracket that releases the hook! I'll rig up something...
I wanna lose the grille, headlights and corners on the wagon. But to do so the grill needs to stay with the car.
