Bugeye custom alloy grilles coming soon. Limited stock!

Postby bugeye1600 » Thu Dec 13, 2012 4:36 pm

You may recall some time ago I mentioned that I had some custom alloy grilles made to suit a Bugeye and that I had sold all of them.
I also said I would go to the foundry and make enquiries about getting more made.
Well, I have been crazy busy since but recently seized the opportunity to make the 120 mile round trip and have ordered 5 more.
They are ready to collect, but I still have to make the return trip to pick them up!
At $A120 each, plus postage, they represent very good value compared to original style repro grilles.

The image shows a finished grille in my car and an as cast grille in the foreground.
The grilles are offered as cast and will need finishing to your requirements. I etch primed and painted my grille then ran a belt sander over it and polished the leading edge.
If you are interested, get in touch to reserve one as these will not last long and I cannot imagine when I will get the chance to get to the foundry again.

Very neat...do they have pins on the back, or how do they attach? Really like the look of that grille!

Installation of the grille is via self tapping screws. Firstly, place the grille against the grille opening and mark where the mounting holes are located. Then, carefully drill pilot holes. Place the grille back into place and secure with screws. You may wish to use a little silicone for extra adhesion. I would recommend clear (having used black!)

I forgot to mention, I made the long journey to the foundry yesterday and have the grilles. Act now to avoid disappointment!

I just re-read what I wrote about the installation and, it seems, I forgot an important point. For the record, the screws go in from the back!

Love this grille. Any left? Or how about the pattern? We happen to have a foundry at work.
