Default Blitz mesh grille for SC430

I've seen an old forum post of a white SC430 with a mesh grille, but it appears to be a one-off.

Just wondering if anyone has installed or has actually seen the Blitz mesh grille for the SC430.

Here's a link: http://www.chromjuwelen.com/partner-...xus-sc430.html

I haven't asked any shops if it can be ordered, but I thought I would ask the CL forum first if anyone knows whether it's available yet. Anyone?

Thanks in advance.

That mesh CF grille is for the 06+ only, you have an 02.

MSRP is $786, add another $182 for the emblem base.
Another $45 for the 06+ front emblem if you don't have one.

Talwang, thanks for bursting my bubble.....

I kinda like it too, lyyca. It's something different. I guess I'll have to go back to debating whether to paint my grille.

Decisions, decisions.......

Fortunately, you don't need to spend $$$$ for something that doesn't fit your car.
Blitz also made a grille for the 02-05, but it was discountinued already.

This is a DIY mesh grille to the extreme. Not sure if anyone here will like it.

I really like this grille. Are there any mesh grilles available for the 02-05 models that don't involve materials from livestock shelters?

No, it will be also difficult for you to find a blitz grille for the 02-05 now.

Yes, it is Tom's cf hood.

That SC has complete Tom's aero kit , Tom's supercharger and more.
In fact, it has Tom's SC50 emblem badges on the rear trunk.
