SVT Honeycomb Euro Grill

OK before you move this thread it is specific to SVT (and not generic exterior) and these folks may be best able to help me.

My SVT came with the factory HIDs. I'd like to lose the grill mounted turn signal as the HIDs have a built in turn signal. But the SVT grill (both upper and lower) has a honeycomb theme and all the euro grills have a diamond-ish theme. Are there any honeycomb upper euro grills out there? Or can I get a matching diamond theme SVT lower grill? All the lower grill items I've seen exclude the SVT because of the different shape of the grill. I guess I'd like to match up diamonds & diamonds or honeycombs & honeycombs. Not too worried about the rear honeycomb versus maybe all diamonds on the front.

What have some of you other folks done? Maybe nobody else is concerned about the thematic difference?

Lol, that's not true...I've also been looking for a honeycomb upper grille w/o turn signals and/or w/o the ford logo. But with no luck...but i do have an idea for what i can do about that...

Regardless, it's moved to "Exterior Body & Lighting Chat".
In fact, if you search in those forums you'll see this has been discussed several times.

Yup Doug is right......

This has been discussed many times. If it was me, I'd go with an UPPER AND LOWER euro grill set, matching.........

The search didn't reveal any solutions. Does anyone make a lower euro grill (that fits the SVT) and a matching (diamond, honeycomb, whatever) upper grill? I'd like all honeycomb if available so I'd only need to buythe upper grill but would be wiling to buy both if they had a matching pattern.

The euro grille looks fine from a distance, but if you are picky like me you'd notice the two different patterns and know something isn't stock.

Either all diamonds or all honeycomb!
