Are you looking for something more like this? (click to zoom for detail)

This is a Phantom Billet grill (phantom meaning it covers the headlights)
It is custom mounted with universal tabs.
The stock grill (and headlight bezels) are cut-out and the billet grill is fitting inside of it.
The factory grill is still retained, except the center part which is cut out and removed.

In this photo (of my custom radiator installation) you can see the tabs on the grill...

The tabs are attached to simple brackets... then the top part of the factory grill is attached as well. I've had it this way for 2 decades now.. works great.

The bottom is attached like this...

I bought this grill in the 90's.. I have no idea who makes it or where you can get one now.

That looks like a pretty good deal!

Some states a "phantom grill" (covering headlights) might be illegal.
Here in Florida they don''t bother you for anything..
(at least not the past 20 years)
