Some "work" done in pshop.

Anyone seen a color-matched grill like this (not a fan of the did-it-at-homedepot mesh look) or seen a front badge shaved?



Thoughts?

I don't see any point in "shaving" the badge. I actually think that SAAB could use a more pronounced badge. ixnay on the color-coded grille as well.

so it seems that nobody likes the painted grille - how about one with the "wingspan" or whatever removed and altered so it was just black slats.... would look like this

Not doing anything for me. I like the front end stock or perhaps the mesh grill, but not a fan of removing the badge or the SAAB on the grill. The "wingspan" is the best part of the grill IMO....

Blasphamy,:nono; the Saab purists will string you up for sugesting such a thing. The "wingspan" is just that, a pair of wings and represents Saab's aviation history. Any front end mod should allow for the keeping of the wings in their intended position.

Best thing I've seen is paint the chrome trim around the grill body color and then go with a dark mesh grill with the Saab emblem still exposed.
