Don't think anybody has done it because the grille is still oval where the badge once was and it looks cack. There was the no limits front grille available from shagger at a very reasonable price.

When i got my latest coog it was debaged. I didnt like it and replaced it with a cougar 2 mercury grill. I still have the old grill in my garage if your interested? I can take some pics tomorow.

Mine is just the original frame, wired in the middle, bit of "carbon" film/trim on the lower part and put on one of Jezports badges.
I think it looks quite subtle and recessed.

The US badge is plastic crap, thats why a lot of members have changed them.

I have been through a few grill variations, here is some of them;

But finally I stuck with this;

Rather than spending ?ú50 on a new American style grill, I merely swapped my British one with someone on the American site NECO, cost a fiver in postage, result!

Blimey, I have forgotten how much my car has changed since I got it!
