Hello guys!
It seems much time have passed since my last visit here. I Was slightly busy.
Recently I have etched Ferrari Modena 360 challenge grill.

Here I cut out original tail part and replaced it with my grill. I must say it is tricky thing to bend cooper mesh in two directions. I have annealed the mesh, so it became almost black (like the real one) and soft enough to bend it around original part.

I have made 6 grilles: three of them of sheet cooper 0,15mm:

Mesh holes are about 0,3mm. Other three grilles made of sheet brass 0,3mm. Unfortunately these have no through openings because of the thicknes of material:

Thank you guys! Perhaps it needs some filing on edges, but this is far away project. I've made this grill together with parts for current truck projects.

2 GTV2000: No problem. I guess I need only one grill. I can sell the others. PM me.

A little update. I guess this should be the right base to mount the mesh

I used sheet styrene ribs up & down to fix the grill firmly.

Don't pay attention to white strip behind the grill. It's a double side adhesive tape.

I still have some grills for trade.
