Default photoshop request please - full grill

i really want to see a full grill on these blazers that covers the headlights also, like you could put on the older s10's from trenz i think was the brand. idk how possible this to make is but i'd like to get an idea. billet and a mesh in black.

no, i know they make those.. i was asking for a full grill that covers the healights and markers/parkings..

ex (for conveying the idea, sadly i can't find an image for it beside this page- which i didn't know existed until 5 mins ago ha):
http://www.customcamper.com/categori...LET_GRILLS.pdf

on page 7, 2292-cp. it's a full wrap around that covers the lights. can someone do this w/o the chevy bar? and also one with a black mesh?

i'll give another pic for help if link errors (but obviously this is on a truck about 10yrs younger):

That's called a phantom grill. To be able to use one, the headlights have to be recessed. Easy to do on the older trucks with sealed beam headlights, not so easy with composite headlights. It can be done, but to make it look right you would have to do some heavy modding to the radiator core support. At least, that's the only way I know of to make one work.

Why wouldnt you just buy the one from that catalog. Its exactly what you are looking for. Hell I didnt even know anyone made something like that for the 98+ S10's and I have been around the mini trucking scene for all my life until my recent lift build and even then I chose a mini to lift....LOL

The phantom grill in the catalog for 98+ isn't available yet. Like I mentioned earlier, a phantom grill to fit those models and look decent will require heavy modification.

warthogdriver-- thanks a ton, exactly what i wanted in the second one. still curious about the black mesh if you have time but nbd if not.

and yeah, i sent a request for pricing so we'll see but i figured messing with it myself with stock grille would be def under the at least $500 it's gonna be for that grille (idk if you have that just lying around to blow but i know i sure don't!) that's why i was thinking about the black mesh.

and as for heavy mod to the truck i understand that (obviously, those lights aren't just gonna recess outta nowhere), i enjoy that stuff. but i'm not planning this real soon here anyway

To make it easier you could swap your core support to the older style and use the older style headlights (which are recessed already) and you'd save a ton of fab work.
