06/04 grill conversion

Ok, ive found a guy on ebay that can modify an XL black plastic 06 grill to fit an 04, my plan is then to bondo the entire grill for a smooth finish, then shoot it gloss black, ive also found a billet insert that is made to fit the PLASTIC type grill. the whole thing should cost about $240 inc. shipping.

Then im going to paint my chrome 04 bumber Black for an all black front end.
Also clear corner lights or a one piece headlight is an option (06's lights are too $$$ for me )
Any suggestions/ideas to help make this work?

Paul

you can modify the grill yourself just talk to some people. I think you only have to cut some off the bottom of it to get it to fit. Someone on here had a black 05 grill (sport) and was only wanting 60.00 plus shipping on it. Then you could just cut the bottom of it to make it fit correctly

The one in that truck is an 04 just like the one in the pic. There is a grill almost identical to this on ebay also. The only thing that I see different is that fact that it doesn't have a FORD logo in the center of it. Actually there is 2 but I am wanting one of them so try not to run the bid against me if you dont mind. :Thumbup: Bid on this one here. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEBI%3AIT

That video is of a 2004 Solid Black Harley. That is the same grill/front end as the 04 2/Tone one above.
