How was it custom? Do you have a picture or can you describe it?

I would attempt it with a piece of metal, bolts, and a pony. Screw the black rubber at the bottom. Cut the pony out of your honey comb grill.

In my first stang I made my own...just filled the holes from the OEM grill then I taped and painted the area...made a bracket for a pony then popped the pony off the stock grill for it. Looked ok but then I bought a used three piece kit. Can't beat the premade kit for cleanliness.

I just gotta get the wife to sign off on the dip, i want to do my rear valance, decklid, tires hood and (now) that. but i'm a bit OCD, and she's afraid I'd end up wasting it all.... (i re-did my tailights because the first time they screwd up and were all splotchy, couldn't tell from a distance but you could up close, and i knew it was there and didn't like it. lol)
