I love the look of the phantom grilles but couldn't find one I like so I made my own.. this is a pic of my 1st attempt but have recently purchased newer material for a second attemp that will be stonger and fit better than this one. So if you have a phantom grill on your Challenger lets see it...






and yes it just an overlay but I did remove the bezels afrom the headlights ....

Any close-ups on the pattern? Where did you get it and how much did you spend? I was considering doing something similar with chicken-wire over the stock grill (not phantom style), but wasn't liking the durability of it.

Not really a phantom grill, but thought I would share in case it interests anyone. After losing one of my GTS headlight covers, I decided to make my own by using the cover that was left to cut some plexiglass from the local hardware store. They didn't have any smoke color so I went with clear. Then just put some pinstripe tape over them. Now, I don't have to keep taking the covers off when driving at night. I also painted the grill surround part black.

That's a very convincing replica. Nice work.

What did you use for material and how did you get it to stay? Looks SWEET!
