Don't have a car yet, but I will take your word for it. Still would like to see grill inserts that will match the RK Sport rear fascia. While I am not metrosexual in the least... I can't picture the front and rear grills not matching.

RK Sport front grills

As of our production meeting yesterday, we are looking into making recessed grills with a C/F bezel and mesh to match our rear diffusser. The key word to this is "looking into".

When we schedule prototyping this forum will be the first to know.

once you get the front end of all you need to do is remove the foam bumper cover and then you have about 2 inches to the bumper, in order to pull this off you need to scotch brite the aluminum bumper and paint it flat black, voila plenty of space

I would order the recessed front grille if no major mods are needed and if it would match the rear dual grille.

I'm excited. If this goes through, I am definately getting the dual exhaust, rear fascia, and front grills as my first "major" mods. Curious to see if Devil Dog can chrome these items if they are produced.

Sorry to double post, but I just heard a rumor that I hoped could be confirmed.

Clear Image Automotive (CIA) told me that RK Sports is planning to offer their rear fascia with an option to have the grill portion chromed. Is this true? If so, what is the procedure going to be? Will it be similar to CIA's or will it be different?

Boy the cat runs fast and far when let out of the bag!

Yes we are looking into having the grill portion chromed on our diffusers as well as the front grills. This will be a traditional 3 step chrome process.

Hope I didn't get anyone in trouble on this one. This is great that you are offering it!

Bump...

I am ready to order the fascia and the dual exhaust once we get further word on the front grill inserts. Are they happening?

I'm struggling here. I'm watching all the preorder sales go away because I don't want to buy a rear fascia without a matching front grill...
