I think it looks cool and is definitely unique.

But I fear for that radiator's longevity.

Ever been behind a truck with one of the trailer tires exploded?

Or gravel flying down the highway..

It is most definitely unique. I don't know how I feel about that upper grill being open. It just looks like something is missing.

I've been looking for that as well. Looks awesome. Is there any modification needed to install it. I've taken off the lower grille and there are the plastic inserts on the sides.

Thanks,
Yes you will have to cut-out the outline of the hole and there are metal brackets that support the grille. It took me about 4 hours (cutting, sanding, etc). All and all not that bad, I took my time with it (also fun for me, but some people don’t like these kind of projects, to me it’s half the fun).
I just got the parts no instructions or anything but after 10min of looking at it you will figure it out. I took Pics of the install, when I have a sec I will post them

This. I LOVE the look of this grille but at the same time it does look like something is missing.

It looks great!
What protects the radiator from debri damaging the radiator!?
My 08 GT/CS had an open lower grill which allowed lower damage to my radiator until I bought an after market lower grill from AM.
