I'm looking to make my own radiator show plate. Suprastore and shit is selling them for $65. I think it's too much for a piece of aluminum. I just need the dimension of it. My dad works in a machine shop and can cut me out some if given the dimensions.

I can mass produce it if you guys are interested. It'll just be aluminum or whatever the fuck his shop uses. It won't be polished though.

-----

Edit; can someone verify this measurement?

I'd buy one if it's a decent price...like you said, it's just a piece of aluminum and most of the ones around are way too over-priced. One easy way of getting the dimensions is making a cardboard template...

Yeah, I plan to do the same whenever I find someone with a plate, or I'll just make up my own... also, I'll polish mine too. It'll be the easiest thing I've polished :D

you can trace mine, but you'd have to drive here. I have the HPF unit.

I got a couple of these laying aroud somewhere. I just went and looked and couldnt find em. I was in a hurry tho, since im leaving in a few minutes. Anyways, later on today i'll find em and give ya the measurements. Unless someone else already has.

*edit* Why dont you just measure the space from alittle past each radiator bracket , and the width, and make the piece from that?

I was thinking of doing that, but I guess I want to be more precise.

Sorry, I have no scanner and I can't really justify going to kinkos and all to get it scanned. Too much of a hassle for me. I'm taking mine off to repolish again so I'll take measurements.
