Imho... First gen sedans look best in white. Always liked em, for me clean white focuses that I had chance to see were a head turner even before I got my first Focus.

Sweet grill.

If I'm not mistaken, I just got the same grill used from a guy on here, but he didn't know what brand it was. Do you know what brand yours is?

honestly i have no idea. i too, bought it used. i had some problems with the hood closing, did you? i feel like i need to remove the headlights to get it to fit flush.. i also dont like that i can see part of my bumper from the bottom, and am looking for some black roofing fascia like you used.. as far as the grille goes, the person i purchased it from came with an emblem that says "type rs"

The guy I bought it from said he couldn't get it to sit right either and he was also selling headlights just like yours so I assume he was using them with his grill. With my Machs, the grill fits perfectly, so it's probably headlight related.

Using the "type rs" info, I found these two link. Looks right to me.

Looks like our grille! I've got Machs on the way should be here Thursday so hopefully won't be as tight as a fit. I got it to fit correctly but took some time and like I said before is a very tight fit. I really need some black roof paper or whatever its called but my local HD only sells them by a mass amount which is like 25 bucks.. sucks lol trying to think of something else I can use.

Yeah, if you can find scraps or something that someone is just throwing away, that would be better; all you need is a couple feet or so. I will worn you, however, that metal fascia has a very tinny sound if you don't know already. Every time I close the hood, you get that rather embarrassing rattle as it vibrates against the bumper and grill. Mine is still held on by only two screws so I'm hoping to quit it down but I haven't gotten a chance to experiment yet. Maybe you'll have better luck.
