....or the mesh near the driving lights?

i've seen a few aftermarket grilles that i like, but is there one that matches the pattern exactly?

never hurts to ask.

i like that grille. is it also possible to buy that mesh for the hood scoop so it all matches perfectly?

the way it mounts... can a few washers be used to make it recessed back a little?

Grillcraft looks very nice!

It can't be recessed, it fits tight and flush. At least not the way it comes. There are four tabs that are used to secure it to the plastic flange.

the "stock" grillcraft is the closest thing. If you want to do the recessed grill mod you do the hood, grill's, and triangles. You can also buy the mesh from grill craft in a sheet for cheap if you want to try and retrofit it.

No, can't recess it, at least not without cutting it up. As someone mentioned, I guess you can buy a sheet of the material from grillcraft and make your own for the hood scoop. I don't really know for sure tho.
