If this does well, Im in the works for some other new stuff. I am waiting on the cost of molds now.
How about a headlight conversion for the Scorpio? The euro headlights for that are also very hard to come by for those cars.

Thats awsome i've been trying to figure out a headlight conversion also but you did a great job! so how about the grill with out brackets or lights how much could you part with that for.
T3/T4 turbo, Stinger Performance manifold, FMIC, Knock off Greedy type s bov, T-5 trans, Steeda Short shifter, Stage 1 clutch, OBX FMU, adj Fuel pressur regulator, MBC, external wastegate, and a few problems. But i still love it WHY?

I might do something for the Scorpio. There have been a few requests, I dont have a Scorpio to work from though.

As far as selling a Grill with no brackets!! Not really sure what good it would be, as its very specific to those lights. But if you really want one Let me fill the orders for the first 5 then I will work something out.

Thanks again everyone, I will be working on some other stuff soon.

If anyone has suggestions let me know and if there is enough need I will build it. :wink:

Is this going to be a one time production or are you doing more?

I would also like to hear an answer to this. I have no doubt that a lot of work has been put into Outcast's grill, though, if possible, pics of the mounting bracket would be appreciated.

No wiggles or shakes. The bracket resembles the Chevy bracket and screws tight to the core support. Once the Grill is in place it stays where it belongs. No pics of the production bracket, I have to pick up the Stainless and hardware and just have not had time yet.

Hah!. Rob (Outcast....) lives in Annapolis; NYC is ~ 3 hours up I-95.

Not that Rob is an NYC kind of guy (neither am I), but his SO, Brandi, might be, I'll wager. :lol:

Still going to bat for us "West Coast"-ers, saddled, as we are, with a Regional system that fails to address reality; if I were to attend the Bellevue thing, e.g., I literally would have to drive "for days." Meanwhile, the East is broken up into so many "Regions" that are only hours apart. :poke

Bitch, bitch, moan, bitch, complain, bitch, kvetch, bitch....

You've got all the charms of Snottsdale--sun, weather (no snow/cold), historic sites, amazing scenery, glamorous women, high society, outdoor recreation in abundance, etc., and you STILL want more consideration and attention? :P BTW, as you know so well, East coasters (and a few Canadians masquerading as East Coasters) sopped up most of the supply of Merks as they came off the boats; and we're sorry in retrospect more of us didn't sign deals on the rest and and keep them them ALL here. :P :lol:

I read that and thought, "is that true?" So I searched and found all in about 15 seconds:

No worries. I'm stoked for the grill, so the more that I know about it, the happier that I am.
