Default Radiator panel

Does anyone know where to get a cheap radiator panel? I found this one on ebay but feel it is way to much for a piece of sheet metal.

Just make your own Cheech!!! It's not that hard, btw, where the **** are you located? Maybe there is a Piedmont Plastics near you, pick up some ABS for fairly cheap, it looks good, works good, and is not that expensive and has many many uses...

DIY...I just made a really shitty/but still functional one out of a sheet of aluminum from HD. Take the plastic one thats on there now, trace it on the alum, and cut with some sheers or a dremel or whatever...It's easy, took all of 20min...Thought I saw a post on here recently someone did the same thing...but HIS looked nice

Personally, its just to hold me over till I do my ABS undertray...I'm using the leftover for this and possibly a fan shroud (research pending)

^^^^What he said, just DIY. I bought a small piece of sheet metal from home depot for like $6. I copied the plastic one already on the car and extended it like 2" back so it backs up against the radiator. I put some stickers on it so it doesn't look bad at all. Save yourself $100!

I just got the TDR one for my birthday from my ex. Looks super nice.

I don't know why everyone doesn't have one. It cleans up the engine bay like 500%, and they're functional.

The OEM plastic ones didn't show up until later.
