Only if you buy the bumper from us at Paragon...... Otherwise, no, very far from it, a few have done it but with a lot of hassle

Turns out that Mina Galleries has a kit for the black mesh grille and is supplying and can include and install the strake and emblem before shipping it to me. Very friendly people, and a reasonable price.

Are your bumpers glass or the plastic ABS stuff like factory?

Excellent Max, that will definately be your cheapest route.....

Our bumpers are GRP...... In our opinion this is better as you have more options, it is not easy modifying a plastic bumper......

Default like original

97 xk8. I really considered replacing my original grill but after looking at a lot of pictures I decided the original looks best.

I have a 1999 XK8 and would be happy to swap for your grill.

Interested?

I love the mesh grille, never was a fan of the buck tooth look. But, to each his own, that is why they sell after market

parts.
