Arrow --- "Stealth" Plexiglass Grill Block --- (PICTURES)

Hey guys,

So I wanted a grill block that could not really be seen, so I came up with my answer.

It sits right behind the oem mesh and you can barely see it. The plexiglass I got at Lowes for $13. And that is all it took (and zip ties). (OH AND GET THE THICK PIECE OF 18X24 OF PLEXIGLASS! DO NOT GET THE THIN ONE THATS AROUND $6 BECAUSE IT IS WAY TO FLEXIBLE AND IT WILL CRACK!!)

I could not do the top "slits" of the grill because there was no way to mount it, but I did do the area right behind the center emblem. Again its VERY stealth and you can bearly see it, its durable, light, and CHEAP!

A look behind the bumper; the middle part I didnt cover because half of the middle part is covered by the license plate which acts as my grill block Also, the plexiglass was not long enough, which was a good thing, again because the licensce plate sits there...

The finished product, try to even find the grill block!! STEALTH!!

IDK it's glossy... that'd be the only problem. I used the back of a three ring binder (a black one) and It worked out perfect! I'll try to post pics.
Best fill up so far is now 29 MPG!

Looks excellent!

Something I'd consider if the OEM VX grill block wasn't so cheap and easy to mount.

On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...
