    (As there is not a general 'vendors' board, I put the thread here)

    Do you know of anyone that makes grille inserts? I am wondering if a thin mesh grille to house the horned emblem plus an insert could work to produce something like this:

    I am guessing that if something like a Satoshi grille can be installed, a two-layered system could be done in lieu. Problem is, I have seen inserts for Dodges and Fords, but none for the Toyotas...I see no reason why the rust buckets should have all the fun, after all, we made the wiser purchase [​IMG]

    Thank you for any leads that might result in scaring people at night on the highway.
