Think the AmericanAutoBlaBla company has started another business. Have you contacted them ? They might want to tell you where they got theirs ?

No luck searching for American Auto Co. My best bet would to find someone who bought a vertical billet grille that decided not to mount it and wants to sell it. Thanks anyway Red.

Old site:

New site:
https://billet-grilles.com/

You could try contacting them and ask where they used to get them from.

I faked it with some 4mm wide chrome strips from ebay. It's holding up quite well.

That looks great Onlyron! Did you post details of how you did that and maybe a link to the ebay seller of the vertical chrome pieces?

This should be the link to my YouTube channel. I replaced a loose strip. It shows how I applied them. I will post a link to where I bought the chrome strips. Once I make sure this worked as it should.

After seeing a chrome mesh grill at Corning on a beautiful red coupe I have decided to get one and will post a picture when it's installed. Thanks to all.

Well I'll have the stock grills to paint and chrome strip them like onlyron as a winter project. The 3mm chrome strips on fleabay are less than 4 bucks. At Corning I also saw a Solstice with Norm's tunnel grill that looked good as well but I sent him an email but never heard back from him.
