Default Anyone with experience on the Jap market grill?

JDM Blk Mesh Front Hood Bumepr Grill Grille ABS 03 05 Honda Accord 4D 4DR Sedan | eBay

That grill specifically? I'd like to eliminate the big H on the grill. I need my car to be as generic as possible, with little to no identifying markings on it. I dont' forsee it being all to difficult to install this, but if anyone has done it and would like to share any challanges they faced I'd appreciate it.

With cheap parts like that, a lot of times the fitment sucks. Also the quality of materials isn't that high, so it could be more prone to cracking, warping, etc.

You get what you pay for.

OK, well any other suggestions? I want to get rid of the H emblem and make the car look more generic. That's the only one I've seen, though I don't know many sources for import parts. I've always been a domestic car guy, so I can find anything for the big 3, and little to nothing for European and Asian

They have sold a ton of them and have positive feedback so you might get okay results with that.

Other than spending a few hundred or more on a Mugen or the like type grill I don't know that you have any other options.

Just curious why are you trying to make it generic looking? Make it hard for the cops to describe? lol

Lol. I had to sell my 98 Lincoln Mark VIII and buy the most common car on the road. I've taken off the ACCORD badge and even the V6 badge. It's grey, very non descript. You could see it 20 times a day and not think twice. If I can get the grill emblem off, then the last real badge would be the one on the trunk, but that will take a smudge of body work and paint.

In short, I'm a private investigator who does a lot of surveillance. The less recognizable my car, the easier my job !
