So I was on the freeway when a car in front of Me kicked up a semi truck tire ( due to cars on both sides of me I could not swerve to avoid the tire) and it smashed the shit out of my grill and front bumper.
When I hit the tire it actually remove the entier grill from the car.
So now I need to figure out what to put in its place I never liked the
factory grill but I really dig the r32 skyline grill has any one done a
grill swap other than the later svx grill .
Give me your imput let me know what you guys think about the different
grills.

Should have gotten a plate number off the truck and call and filed a claim. Then you could have some spare change for such a project.

I think the 97 grill looks the best:



I mocked some stuff up in PS but nothing looks as good as the 97.

Looks sick! Hard too tell because I am looking at pic from my Iphone but the grille looks like it has an S in the middle. Is thIs a Silvia or Skyline grille fitted to your SVX?

That is interesting. I've never seen a modified front end actually flow so well, with such cohesive design details. I really like the hood, and how it dips down toward the grill, which provides a lot more character. That said, I don't understand the appeal of putting a family car front end on an SVX.
