Since my has no inner guts and is all broken out, it is kinda hard to tell if the grille is evenly spaced all the way across. I measured each end(up and down) and came up with approximently 5 1/8 inch spacing. I am trying to customize my grille and like to know if you other duster person's could measure yours to see if I am correct with that spacing. Measure in the middle of your grille too, since mine has no inner guts the grille flexes, making it vary in size. I don't know if the grille vary's or stays straight all the way across at 5 1/8 inch.

Swany I have thought about this in the past.Customizing a grill without making it look tacky.I would try putting fins in it sort of like the sharkstooth grill .Take a peice of cardboard and shape a nice fin out of it maybe a couple of different sizes like a smaller fin over the signal lights and then to a bigger fin through the middle of the grill to give you this effect ___/""""""\___ if that makes sense .Push the cardboards on to a wire to get the desired effect for spacing and looks.Approx 30 peices is what a sharkstooth has and this would look similar.then get some puck board or plexi glass 1/8 or smaller .Transfer all your cutouts to the choosen material .If you try to make it like a sharkstooth 20 of one size about 10 of the other . Then glue them in place using crazy glue and baking soda .A couple of day job but I think that you could do a good job if you took your time .And would look much better than a stainless or metal mesh in my opinion.
Just a idea to think about.
