Grill Fabricating Help Needed

I need suggestions for a grill for my project. I don't want the look of a factory grill and I have not been able to find a "Phantom" grill for this. It's a 1989 S10. I was thinking maybe I could make a grill using aluminum flatbar but would like other suggestions too. The problem I see here is I need to use something that I can form to the fenders where the marker lights use to be. This is a compound bend and tahts why I was thinking flatbar would be fairly easy. Any help would be appreciated. Other than the grill, this project is DONE!!!


Here are some pictures of the hood scoop I built and molded to the cowl hood. I had never built a scoop before but I am pleased at the way it came out. It only took me 7 days to build it and paint it.

You did a nice job on the scoop so why cannot you do some 'fender corners" Should be doable from sheet metal but will take some time on the beating bag..then do a rolled pan with a straight bar grille..On the fender corners maybe the back bed corners may have close to the right curves??

Just kicking an idea or 2..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
