    Default Fairlady Grill Reproduction

    Hey guys, just wondering if any of you have tried this Fairlady grill from MSA? I've always liked the look of these but never ventured as far as to find an original JDM piece. Much appreciate photos if you've got them. Seen only a few of them in my ventures.

    Black one:

    It looks like they also have a gunmetal version (too pimp for me):

    The impression I got from MSA is that its a new reproduction. So its unlikely that anyone has even had the chance to use that model just yet. It looks high quality to me, though.

    There is a thread on hybridz from a guy (David , 1 tuff Z) making these reproductions.

    Fairlady Z Mesh Grill - Reproduction Thead - Vendor's Forum - HybridZ

    Not sure if they are the ones showing up at MSA.

    Yes thats 1tuff Z's grill he made in the Hybrids thread. He produced two series of 10 and is now selling through MSA. I posted in the thread enquiring about the 280Z.
    He was buzy with a friends 280Z, but it used the original valences and Im using the PU Air-dam from MSA so Im sort of a crossing between the two.
    Tamo3 had he same problem with his 280Z and would have to do some mods to get it to fit. 1 tuff Z very sporting and refund him no problems.
    Its still tempting to try. It looks great

    Mike, having seen your car in person, I think the gunmetal one would look better on your car than the black, which I feel would be too stark on all that yellow. If you haven't already re-done the tail trim panels, you could do them in the same color as the Fairlady grill. I think that would be a good look on your car.
