I definitely agree. The honeycomb mesh looks phenominal. I love this car! That grill really puts it over the top. I do not think the horizontal bars would have the same appeal as the nostalgic honeycomb
Actually, I appreciate your unique perspective. I was wondering what you thought of them. One one hand, the honeycomb mesh was used on early Mustangs, whereas the '69 had the rectangular "ice cube tray" grille. That was the initial reason I wanted to use the billet grille, to play on the horizontal lines of the '69. The S197's are rather an amalgam of different year mustangs, so the honeycomb might not be as out of place as I thought. The more I look at it, the more it's growing on me.

I took the 66 "brick pattern" grill of my 66 Mustang and replaced it with the honeycomb grill of 65, a much more refined and muscle car look....unless we're talking challengers and such :)

Wow. Don't get me wrong, because the car was great before, but that seals the deal. Those front end shots are incredible.

Better get that car inspected soon :shigrin
