Nose job done… for now.

well, I mentioned in a previous post that I had a surprise for the nose and here it is.  It’s a custom aluminum grille I had cut on a water jet.  I also had a cool AMX badge cut as well.  Currently the grille is just spray painted black but ultimately I would like to powder coat it.  This grille eliminates the circular openings for the turn signals.  The stock turn signal lenses are domed and wouldn’t fit behind this grille.  the solution was to go to my local plastics place and get some amber colored clear plastic.  I then cut correctly sized circles out of it and drilled the screw holes and voila, flat lenses.  However, I was concerned that the flat lenses put the plastic too close to the normal filament bulbs so I swapped them for some LED bulbs.  Now, this turn signal setup is actually just temporary as my ultimate goal is to have an LED strip on each side of the grille sitting in between the two middle  slats.   I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
