Maybe we can get him to try a piece in white and do a poll on it?

John (Gav) dug up this picture today. I'm starting to wonder, if it's a piece of aluminum. And this one is nice and dirty.

Do you have this guy's email, John?
I'll drop him a note.

Will, look up near the upper left corner of this grill. It still has a very small patch of YELLOW paint on it.

Hmmm, now is that paint on the grill or overspray from a past touch up repair?

Looks like OEM to me.

Paint one side yellow and the other whatever you want, then you can flip it over depending on your mood.

Why not make one of each... I mean, you HAVE to use that scrap to make the "front PTO option" grille insert, right? I mean.... that is like having another attachment!

I think I'll make a few, but they won't be changed daily. Impossible to just slide in there, the
whole grill has to be removed (with lights). It'll be a seasonal changeover. Yeah, like an attachment.

That would work! Better get hold of the shipping company and see if you can get a discount on mass orders!

Yes, great idea. I'll delegate that to my daughter, who's a bit of an artist, and needs a project. :dancingbanana:
