I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find (if it exist) a real looking "see-through" grill to put on a 1968 Charger (the middle section) ? ....... Custom parts websites or else .....



Cause all the 1/18 I've seen, even on ERTL Authentics are solid and not see-through like on the real car.


This would be for my next custom job ... or if anyone has an idea on how to replicate one?

I thought about using mesh but it would'nt look the same :

Hi. I've thinking about this thing for a long time and just got Greenlight Bullitt Charger, so I'm gonna try to make my version.

I've planned to make parts by etching and assemble them into the grill. It's so tiny patrs that I don't how it will looks like in the end...

Ooh yeah, now we're talking. Stuff like this is what I see for DXs future, detail will be amazing if you can do it.

That would be really cool if you could pull that off!  I have a 1968 Charger by AutoWorld that I want to add as much detail to as possible since the 1968 model is the #1 car I'd have in my 1/1 collection if I could afford to collect 1/1 cars!
