    Mesh ATS grill: where to buy?

    I am looking for an ATS grill that looks like this:

    image.jpg

    This pic is from carid.com but they do not carry a grill that looks like that (go figure). Anyone know where I might be able to find a similar grill?

    I don't know who makes it.

    I don't want black and I don't want an overlay but what interests me is that it includes the lower openings with the LED bar. I've rejected every manufacturer I've found so far because none offered matching parts for there. I can accept an overlay there since there is no air flow thru them. If you find the manufacturer please post. I'll do the same.

    That's a proto type grille from E&G Classics.

    I've begged them to make this for me as we are a dealer, and they said no.

    The grille that made it to production has the framed perimeter, on the upper and lower grille. The only solution they had for me was to paint the perimeter.

    Something to do about mounting.....and the aero shutters. I even went as far as telling them to send me one before welding and I would come up with something. Shot down!

    Still looking.

    Well not technically a prototype because it never made it to production. It's a photoshop they did prior to the ATS being released for Fitment.

    I'd say wait till the ATS-V comes out to see if we can get functional lower side grills. That's my plan.

    Does the one that made it to production have a similar mesh style? That's what I really like about this one... And the matching side ones too... I already plan on painting a flat black, so the trim all the way around doesn't bother me...

    These appear to be the only two options.

    That prototype version is perfect. Too bad it never made it to completion, its exactly what I'd be looking for

    All of those are E&G. All of E&G replace the upper factory surround with their Perimeter.

    The lower grilles add a second perimeter.

    Too me the surrounds on the grilles make them look like afterthoughts.

    At there any other manufacturers out there that made grills for the CTS that might be making some for the ATS?

    I happened to score a good deal on a factory upper and lower grille today, so I am going to try to mod it to look like the one above... I will post pics once I start to work on it.
